023 Matt Flynn: Promotion ripped away at Kelty, Fergie, Scott Allan, losing both parents & his way, bouncing back, teammates chipping in for op & selling lubricants

THERE'S no Paul this week so Airdrie director of football Stuart Millar joins Gareth as guest co-presenter to speak to Kelty Hearts midfielder Matt Flynn. 

Matt could have been preparing for a new season back in the SPFL but the promotion door from the Lowland League was slammed shut during lockdown.

Sitting on a fishing chair in his front room, he gives us his thoughts on that controversy and how Barry Ferguson has got his men ready to do it all over again.

As a kid Matt came through the ranks at Dundee United, where he started a friendship with Scott Allan that's as strong today as it's ever been.

Hear more about the Hibs midfielder - and why Matt moved to Tannadice despite an offer from boyhood heroes Rangers.

Matt talks about how being let go saw him fall out of love with the game and eventually led to him losing his way on and off the pitch.

Then after getting his game back on track at Annan Matt tells us how the tragic loss of both parents and a long-term injury left him feeling disillusioned again.

But after his Clyde teammates chipped in to help pay for an operation he's not looked back.

We’ll hear how he's rebuilt his life and look back on a career which has also taken in the likes of Brechin, Stenhousemuir, Caledonian Braves and East Stirling.

Plus Matt tells us about his job selling lubricants - but, no, not that kind.

It’s all here on Down The Divisions.
