John or Jacky or Johnny Peat

Postby NeilMillwall » Mon Feb 20, 2017 7:17 pm

I'm helping research a Workington who's who and we are really stuck. Im looking for birth and death info for a a player called John or Jacky or Johnny B Peat who played for Partick Thistle 19 August 1947, St Mirren August 1951, Cowdenbeath July 1952, Kilmarnock September 1953, Workington October 1953, Leith Athletic February 1954, Dundee United February 1954, Montrose November 1956 until 58/59.

I had a look at the records in Scotlandspeople centre in Edinburgh but couldn't find any suitable candidates. Im starting to find he was either Irish or not called John. Can anyone please throw any light on him.

Neither!

He signed himself as Jack Peat in 1950. Never made the break through at Firhill, with only one first team appearance in his 4-season spell, lining up at centre forward in a 3-1 Division A win at Starks Park on 8th October 1949. I believe he tried for Thirds after leaving Thistle at the end of season 1950-51, before signing with Saints. Sorry I can't be of more help... please keep us posted if you get a breakthrough on his life certs.

I don't suppose there is any info in a handbook of the era? Yes I will keep you in touch.

Sorry I don't have date of birth etc for him but I have him as 'Jack' Peat & signing for Leith Athletic on 18 January 1954 having previously been (possibly still at then) Cowdenbeath. Leith had withdrawn from the Scottish League but as they had retained their SFA membership were able to enter a side into that season's Scottish Cup with a team made up of ex-players & loan signings & managed by the Players' Union secretary. His address registered with the SFA for the Scottish Cup that season was 17 Whitehaugh Avenue, Paisley.
