Jerry Kelly, Ayr & Everton

Post by Gordon Baird » Tue Oct 01, 2013 3:13 pm

I'm looking for additional information about a player by the name of Jeremiah (Jerry) Kelly.
Born in Hamilton in 1900, he played for Blantyre Victoria, Ayr United, Everton and Carlisle United up until 1931.

From then until 1934 he played for a club called Dublin Dolphins, spending the summer of 1933 in France with Stade Rennais Universite. After a few months with Glentoran, he returned home and played one match for Dunfermline (4-2 defeat of Clyde, 29.12.34) but was released within days. I know he had a couple of trials with Clyde after that but then the trail goes cold.

I know it's a long shot but I'd be grateful for anything about his time at Blantyre and his career from 1931 onwards.

The only thing I can add is that he died in East Kilbride on 24 September 1962

I should probably have added that it was his great granddaughter who contacted Dunfermline Athletic asking for information, so I would imagine she knows that kind of detail.
I didn't though, and it saves me asking her, so thanks for that.
