Jim Lavery Death, Obituary – In the month of December 1948, Lavery was born in the town of Lennoxtown, which is found in Scotland. Although he signed with the team for the very first time in August 1966, he did not make his debut with the team until the very last game of 1967, which was a 3-2 win away at Oxford United. The team would also earn a point in the rematch, bringing their overall point advantage over the team that was leading the league at the time to a total of four points. During this time, he would make a total of 16 consecutive appearances across the board in each and every one of the occasions that he took part in.
In August of 1974, Lavery made his second comeback to Scunthorpe United, and this time he had to wait a considerably shorter amount of time before making his debut for the club. This time, he filled in for Geoff Barnard during the team’s fourth league game of the season, which was played away at Barnsley and ended in a 2-2 tie. In August of 1974, Lavery would return to Scunthorpe United after spending time playing for a team in the area called Brigg Town. Throughout the course of the 1974–1975 season, he would end up making a total of 12 appearances for the club, one of which was during the team’s defeat in the League Cup match against Manchester City.
Lavery would head back to Brigg Town once the season had come to an end. During his stint with the club, he participated in a total of 26 games in the league, in addition to two more games in cup competitions. In total, he played in 28 games for the club. During this trying time, Jim’s family and friends are in our thoughts and prayers. We are keeping them in our thoughts and prayers.
