About John Gahagan - first half

"Without doubt, the best after dinner speaker in Scotland" - DAILY EXPRESS

 

 

John Gahagan was born in Glasgow and freely admits that life never really began until he signed for Motherwell Football Club in 1979 following short spells at Clydebank F.C. and Shettleston Juniors.

 

John spent eleven years with Motherwell FC - the club he had supported as a boy. He played under such famous men as Ally McLeod, Davie Hay, Jock Wallace and Tommy McLean, winning two first division championship medals in 1981 and 1985.

 

After a glorious testimonial season in 1990, John moved to Greenock Morton where he spent four years under his favourite manager, Allan McGraw, before retiring in 1994.
