Born Glasgow in 1936, John joined LUFC from Bradford City in 1959 and played 85 games. He was a very prolific scorer amassing 53 goals, including 4 in a League Cup tie with Brentford. John returned to Bradford in 1962 but broke his leg while playing for Rotherham, which hindered his later career. A very under-rated striker, his 22 goals in 1959-60 could not save LUFC from relegation from the top flight.
