Biography:
Hugh Flack made the jump from Irish Intermediate football to the English First Division with little effect. He gained one cap while with Burnley, playing at left-back, rather than his usual club position on the right, in a 7-3 defeat by Scotland in February 1929.

Flack made just three League appearances for Burnley before a step down to the Second Division with Swansea Town. He never made the Swan's League eleven, and returned to Ireland with Distillery for the 1930/31 season. At Grosvenor Park Flack won his only senior honour, the Charities Cup, as Belfast Celtic were defeated 4-2 in May 1931.

Flack decided to have another go a the Football League, signing for Halifax in 1932. He enjoyed two season of settled football in Division Three (North), before bringing his senior career to a close in 1934.
