Jabba's Comments

Reserve team keeper whose only two appearances were in European ties and being replaced in both. In his first game, Leeds went down 0-4 against Lierse SK and in his second he was injured against Hibs, and with Gary Sprake also out it let Glan Letheran in for one of his two appearances. Shaw later went on to be a stalwart in the south-west, first with Bristol City and then with Exeter.

Jabba says: Cheers to Barry from Somerset for the photo.

Frank Boyle says: I lived in the same street as John Shaw in Stirling when I was a boy.He was a year younger than me but already very big for his age. We used to play football in the field at the back of our street till all hours. He always wanted to be in goal. Billy Bremner came from Stirling too , so I think Leeds were always on the look out for any new talent and so they signed him.I'm sorry it didn't work out for him there.

Neil Phelps says: John Shaw played for Gloucester City until the end of 1989. More info here.

Rev Kev, Wigan says: John was a nice bloke at Ashton Gate, the financial meltdown in 1982 really got to him, hence the loss of hair. He saw the reborn club through two years of Div. 4 football and will be remembered as a hero of the club. God bless him, wherever he is and whatever he's up to.
