Current Team
East Stirlingshire

Head Coach

John started his professional football career as a player with Celtic but without making a first team start.

He made his Scottish League debut after moving to St. Johnstone but it was during a five season spell at Ayr United that he made his strongest impression as a player, scoring a phenomenal number of goals for the Somerset Park club.

His transfer to Ayr United’s rivals Kilmarnock caused something of a stir and thereafter played for a number of clubs, most notably East Fife.

John took the step into management with Bo’ness United in the East Junior Superleague but spent the largest part of his coaching career working with youth players at Celtic FC’s academy.
