Player Profile

John was the second cousin of Sheffield Wednesday's famous goalkeeper Redfern Froggatt, who was also capped for England. John played at outside-left and centre-half, a versatile player, and he made almost 150 appearances for the Foxes in just over three years.

Sheffield-born, he'd played in the RAF and then for Portsmouth before arriving at City in March 1954 and making his debut in the same month at home against Bury. He'd turned down a move to Arsenal earlier that season but became the final key cog in Leicester's promotion campaign of the same season.

He suffered relegation with City but remained with the club, finally settling into a centre-half position to guide the Foxes, as captain, to Division Two championship glory.

He moved on to Kettering Town, moving from the First Division to the Southern League, but that's where he finished his career as player-coach.
