Footnotes

  • Coal miner Thomas McAteer was an accomplished big, strong defender who signed for Celtic in May 1910 from Clyde. Having played with Hibernian, Bolton Wanderers, Brighton and Hove Albion and Dundee, McAteer provided experienced cover for the Celtic rearguard while also being a free kick specialist. He picked up a Scottish Cup winners medal in 1911, scoring Celtic's second goal in a 2-0 victory over Hamilton. He left Celtic in June 1912 and went on to play for Albion Rovers among others. Injured in the Great War he finally had to leave football behind and returned to the pits.
