John Young [i]
A. Player

probably born in Scotland

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

The forward may have joined Thistle in 1876 or 1877.

He made his first known appearance on Saturday, 20th October, 1877, in a 4-0 friendly win at home to Huntingdon.

That day, John became a member of our scoring debutant's club.

He scored the last of his 22 known goals on Saturday, 16th February, 1884, in a 1-1 friendly draw away to Heart of Midlothian.

That turned out to be his last known game for the club, having appeared for the Thistle on at least 48 occasions.

His known club-list included only Partick Thistle.

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