'Jocky' Petrie

John Petrie (born 21 Jun 1867 in Arbroath – died 13 July 1932) was a Scottish footballer who played for Arbroath F.C. He holds the record for the most goals ever scored in a senior British football game with 13 goals. This occurred during Arbroath's famous 36–0 victory over Bon Accord F.C. in 1885.

At an international level, his record was not equaled until 2001 by Archie Thompson who scored 13 goals for Australia in a 31–0 win over American Samoa.
