Dan Kirkwood

Daniel Kirkwood Date of Birth: Dec 24, 1900

Born in Dalserf, Lanarkshire in 1900 Dan was on the books of both Airdrie and Rangers before moving south to Sheffield Wednesday in 1926.

Failing to gain a first team place at Hillsborough, Dan’s next move, to Brighton, was a whole lot more successful as he netted 74 goals in 168 appearances in five seasons as a maker and taker of goals from an inside-forward position.

Following injury at Brighton he was granted a free transfer and came to Luton in the summer of 1933 looking to re-kindle his career but after only two games he was off again in a matter of weeks to Swindon where he did little better.

Returning to Scotland, Dan worked as a miner and was a County champion at crown green bowls. He passed away in Stonehouse, Lanarkshire in 1977.
