Debut: Celtic 5-1 St Bernards, League, 18 Dec 1897
BiogSoldier Allan Lynch appeared as a trialist for Celtic in December 1897 from the Scottish Rifles. He seems to have been a soldier from Maryhill Barracks.
An outside-left he made his debut in a 5-1 home league defeat of St Bernard’s on December 18th. He was said to be inadequate on his debut. In fairness, the match was shrouded in fog so dense that at times the crowd could barely see the pitch!
He only made one further appearance (a year and four days later!) in the pouring rain for James "Cud" Fisher before a poor turn-out.
It wasn't to be for him, and he later left travelling with his regiment to serve in the damned South African War in September 1899. However he survived it we believe being alive and well in Portsmouth in 1946.
