John Gahagan

£750 - £1500

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, Alan McGraw, before retiring in 1994.


John is a fully qualified S.F.A. coach holding an 'A' Diploma and spent three very successful years as the S.F.A. Football Development Officer in Clackmannanshire.

John's tales of woe about life in and out of football have whipped up a comical storm at every conceivable venue including the Scottish Sports' Writers and Scottish Professional Footballers Association Player of the Year Awards where he received standing ovations on both occasions. An audience of 1000 diners at the Grosvenor House Hotel in London, December 2006, saw John win his 4th MBN Award, having previously triumphed in Glasgow, Manchester and Leeds.

Whether flirting with triumph or disaster John's philosophy has always been the same... you've hgot to laugh
