John Corrigan was an outstanding footballer of his generation and was spotlighted on national television in Football Focus with Sam Leitch in the 1970s.

Born in Addiebrownhill, he was a stalwart centre half around the 1960s and 1970s era.  His clubs included Airdrie, Stirling Albion, Crystal Palace, Bathgate Thistle and Whitburn Juniors.  He was twice capped by the Scottish Junior FA, once in session 1971/72.

John sadly passed away a few years ago at his home in Fauldhouse.
