James Callaghan Charnley, more commonly known as Chic Charnley, is a former Scottish footballer.
It was as a player with Partick Thistle that he will be best remembered, having played for the club on a few different occasions and is considered something of a cult hero at Firhill.
Chic was raised in the North of Glasgow, a gifted but controversial footballer.
He was brought up a supporter of Celtic. He did have a trial for Celtic, playing one game for them in a friendly against Manchester Utd at Old Trafford. Many rated him as the best player in the game and it was rumoured that he had done enough to win a contract. However, Celtic's manager Lou Macari was sacked not long after this friendly game and rumours of a dream move to Celtic came to nothing.
A very, very entertaining and knowledgeable speaker.
