Paddy Gilhooly was on Tottenham's books for three years until he left for Brighton in 1904.
Started as a junior footballer with Larkhall Thistle and was signed by Celtic in 1896. Patrick could operate as a winger or an inside forward, enjoying running with the ball at his feet making him a favourite with the fans and also attracting approval from the authorities, with a selection to represent the Scottish League against the Football league in April 1898.
However, a lack of discipline and a poor attitude to training resulted in his form dropping off and him leaving the Scottish club.
An undistinguished spell at Sheffield United in 1900 saw him move on to Spurs in the summer of 1901 and while he started in the team at the start of that season, the more regular players ousted him, consigning him to the reserves for the remainder of his Tottenham career.
Releasing him from his contract, Gilhooley signed up with Brighton and spent one season with the Seagulls.
Patrick Gilhooley died on 20th February 1907.
