Born 30 July 1964, Bromsgrove
Nationality English
Weight 97 kg
Height 1.88 m
Position Forward

John clearly did not figure in Shrewsbury Town manager Kevin Ratcliffe’s plans last season and was restricted to just one brief substitute appearance before being released. He moved on to Torquay United in December where he was used mainly as a substitute to add weight to the attack in the final twenty minutes. His high point for the Gulls came with a scrambled late winner in the vital game against Darlington that helped the Devon club retain their Football League status. Although clearly past his prime John is a striker who still possesses the ability to hold the ball up and his mere physical presence unsettled opposition defenders.
