John Spence was probably born in Scotland, although his place and date of birth remain unknown to us. *

The forward signed for Thistle on Tuesday, 5th February, 1901 (after a trial game), having most recently been with Partick Athletic.

He made his debut appearance on Saturday, 26th January, 1901, in a 3-0 friendly win at home to Ayr Parkhouse.

That day, John became a member of our scoring debutant's club, and even added a second for good measure.

He scored the last of his 9 goals on Saturday, 23rd November, 1901, in a 3-1 win at home to Hamilton Academical in the SFL Second Division.

He played his last game for the club on Saturday, 7th December, 1901, in a 1-0 win at home to Leith Athletic in the SFL Second Division, having appeared as a Jag on 19 occasions.

His club-list included Partick Athletic and Partick Thistle.

We don't know where or when John died. *
