Jabba's Comments

Winger signed by Billy Bremner who never really produced the form that his performances in Scotland had promised. After a couple of loan spells, he was sold to Rotherham.

Mike Forster says: John Buckley was your out and out winger. He was so tricky he often tricked himself and as a consequence often ended up flat on his backside. Another for the worse Leeds 11 !

Darryl Billington says: John and I became friends during our time working with the Rotherham United Football in the community scheme. A tricky player who loved a nutmeg, and a fun person to be around. I would like to hear from anyone who has any info regarding John's whereabouts. Since I moved to the USA I have lost contact.

Richard O'Donnell says: John coached me while i was doing my football coaching level 2 certificate. He is a great man who still has a great deal of skill and ability from his playing days and also he is the best coach i have ever been coached by and he now coaches the hull city youth team.

Ade says: John has just been announced the new manager of the Doncaster Belles, the world famous ladies football club. Find out more at

craig gorman says: bucky is a legend and the best coach ever.he is also a funny person who loves banter with his players when coaching.

Eric Mc says: Bucky is a legend - or so he'll tell you!! Great guy!
