  5. John was a great chairman and a very fair person within our football league, he will sadly missed with his funny one-liners and comments and your level head during our committee meetings. From all the messages I have received from the football community I know he was well respected and will be missed from all round the County.
    On a personal level, John was a friend and I will him greatly, but would like Jacqui to know I will always be here if she needs me.
    Rest in Peace John.

  12. What a sad sad loss. John and I lived in the same road in Ferndown, went to the same school and also enjoyed Air Training Corps together. His love of fishing came from days out with my Dad and I, we had such a laugh – great times. John was a unique and lovable man whom has left us far too soon. My heartfelt condolences go out to Jacqui, Graham, Rebecca and Jamie. RIP mate.
