Jabba's Comments

Experienced Scottish international inside forward who had won his first cap with Albion Rovers before a transfer to Hearts saw him win his second and make his reputation as a goalscorer. When he came down to Leeds, he was joint top scorer in his first full season, and although he scored consistently after that, was never in the side for close enough to a full campaign to be able to repeat the feat. He died in early 1986.

Jeff Trice says: John played for Margate in the Southern League during the 34/35 season.
