Sunday Times website: There's eleven Jean Shrimptons but only one Jimmy McIlroy

Thanks to a preview of the Sunday Times new website, soon to go behind a paywall, I know who was on the cover of the first issue of the Sunday Times colour section on February 4 1962.
There were 11 shots of Jean Shrimpton by David Bailey, and one of Burnley football legend Jimmy McIlroy.
It is one of the classic covers featured on the new website, illustrating 40 years of the Sunday Times Magazine. Well worth a look.

Interesting cover! I agree with u, therem is just one Jimmy McIlroy and that's why irish people must be proud of him. He was a real star soccer player.
