Career[edit]

Flannigan started his career at Kilmarnock and debuted on 25 September 2007, as a first-half substitute in a 2–0 defeat to Hamilton Academical in the third round of the Scottish League Cup. On 6 October 2007, Flannigan's Scottish Premier League debut was as a 19 year old in a 2–2 draw versus Inverness Caledonian Thistle.[1] Flannigan is a hopeful young talent as he and fellow young Killie player Craig Bryson impressed during this match.

On 22 March 2008, Flannigan scored his first goal for the club in 4–1 home victory versus Inverness Caledonian Thistle. Flannigan was influential in Killie's equaliser by hitting the post with a free kick before the rebound was scored by team-mate Frazer Wright. Flannigan scored the fourth goal of this match when a low cross was perfectly met by him after a surging run into the penalty box.[2]

On 28 July 2008, after being on trial for a few weeks, Flannigan signed for Partick Thistle.[3]

On 31 January 2012, Flannigan departed Partick Thistle.[4]

In March 2012, Flannigan went on trial with Greenock Morton and debuted in a draw versus Ross County.[5] Flannigan signed until the end of that season towards the end of March 2012.[6] During this period Flannigan sustained an elbow injury that required surgery and he departed the club at the end of his contract.

On 20 November 2012, Flannigan then went on trial at Falkirk and played in an under 20's match versus Hibernian. On 22 February 2013, following his successful trial, Flannigan signed for the Bairns.[7] On 7 May 2013, after only three appearances for the Bairns, Flannigan departed the club, along with another four players.[8]

On 5 July 2013, Flannigan signed for Scottish Championship club Alloa Athletic.[9]
