John Flanagan - date of birth?

Post by football2011 » Wed Oct 02, 2013 2:03 pm

Partick Thistle and St Johnstone stalwart from the 60s John Flanagan sadly passed away during the week but has anyone got his date of birth as there is no mention of his age?, the closest I got to was an article in the Glasgow Herald reporting on his move to Clyde in October 1970 stating he was 27 which means he would have been around 70.

A small step…

The Thistle match programme v Dundee 22nd March 1969 gives his age as 25. If this and the Herald report of 24th October 1970 are correct then his birth date could theoretically fall somewhere between 23rd March 1943 and 23rd October 1943, making him most likely to be 70 when he died.
