● Pat Quinn, 1980 (HA/PTS)

born in Scotland

Thomas Patrick Quinn was born on Sunday, 26th April, 1936, in Glasgow. He had one spell as caretaker at Firhill.


(Wed-19-Nov-1980 ↔ Sat-22-Nov-1980; 3 days)

Assistant manager Pat Quinn took charge of team matters for one game in the immediate aftermath of Auld's departure, but the former East Fife gaffer, who had also managed in Iceland, was never in the running for the main job at Firhill. We think his last involvement with the club was the 2-3 loss at home to Dundee United on 22nd November.

one-off game

It seems like his destiny was inevitable, and Pat soon joined Bertie's coaching team at Easter Road, where he would work alongside a certain John Lambie.

As well as once taking charge of Thistle, he also managed at East Fife (1970-1973) and Fimleikafélag Hafnarfjarðar (1974–1975).

Pat died on Monday, 13th July, 2020, in Glasgow, aged 84.
