J.Nangle was the scorer of East Fife's first ever goal in their opening match against Hearts at Bayview Park on 15 August 1903. The Right Winger also scored his team's second goal in the 2-2 draw. Nangle formed an impressive partnership with Inside Right Houston and the pair delighted the crowd during those early days with their 'rattling style'.
Footnote: If anyone can reveal J. Nangle's first name, please e-mail the editor JimCorstorphine@btinternet.com as seemingly endless research has proved fruitless! It is believed that Nangle hailed from the Lochgelly area.
