Biograph:
Elder brother of Pat Jennings...
"My eldest brother Brian ... was a winger who went on to become a regular amateur international with Northern Ireland, and could esaily have made the grade as a professional in England. But he complied with my parents' wishes to concentrate on his education, got his degree at Manchester Univesity and is now a schoolteacher. So he remained an amateur throughout a lengthy Irish League career with Coleraine."
Pat Jennings (1983)

Brian could also claim responsibility for Pat' whole career, having talked him into attending a training session with Newry United (Newry Town's reserve team).
