● Jock Inglis, 1884 (CUP)

born in Scotland

John Inglis was born on Friday, 17th June, 1859, in Kilwinning, North Ayrshire.

The forward first guested for Thistle in November, 1882, having most recently been with Rangers.

Aged 23, he made his first known appearance on Saturday, 11th November, 1882, in a 6-1 friendly defeat at home to Vale of Leven.

There were no known goals for Jock during his spell with Thistle.

He played his last known game for the club on Saturday, 30th August, 1884, in a 4-1 friendly defeat away to Dumbarton, having appeared for the Thistle on at least 7 occasions.

His club-list included Partick, Rangers, Partick Thistle, Blackburn Rovers, Great Lever and Preston North End.

Jock died on Monday, 16th August, 1920, in Preston, Lancashire, aged 61.

Historian's note: We know from contemporary reports that Jock Inglis of Rangers (usually John but here listed by his less commonly quoted name for the purpose of differentiating him from our John Inglis) guested for Thistle in 1882 and in 1884 on several occasions. Given this affinity, the chances of he and J. E. Inglis (3 holiday weekender appearances 31.12.1881 - 03.01.1882) being one and the same player seem good. Rangers did not play over the festive period in question.
