Pat Reilly

Pat Reilly (football manager)

Pat Reilly (1874 – 1937) was an Irish football manager, who was the first ever manager of Dundee Hibernian, forerunner of Dundee United.

Career

Reilly came to Scotland and became manager/secretary from the initial forming of Dundee Hibernian in 1909. A two-year spell aside, when he remained club secretary, Reilly was in charge for the first thirteen years of Dundee Hibs' existence, leaving just before the name change to Dundee United. It is widely acknowledged that Reilly was instrumental in forming the club, and that without him, there would have been no Dundee United.
