Having started his career with Bristol Rovers, John went on to play for several top-flight clubs, including Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur, making over 400 appearances along the way. Over half of which came for Wimbledon, where in 1988 he played in one of the most famous FA Cup finals of all time – a 1-0 win for the Dons over Liverpool. Now he is retired, John enjoys punditry roles for several different broadcasters as well as taking an active interest in the grassroots game.

During my career I played with some of the best players of their day and they all started out at the grassroots level. Therefore it is vital for the future of our national game that grassroots players have access to high-quality 3G playing surfaces and thanks to the Football Foundation’s excellent record of delivering facilities in places where the need is greatest, we are making huge strides.
