At millmoor you could get close up to the players when they were taking a throw in..i remember johnny taking one shouting to our young winger lee brogden.."youre not coming back son"..johnny quinn was a super footballer with smart stylish ball control..always wore puma boots..
My Mum and I had the cafe close to Millmoor football ground. John and his team mates would come there for pints of milk after training sessions. It is a very long time ago now but happy memories last on.
I am currently writing an article for the Prescot Cables match programme on Johnny Quinn, who I remember as a Prescot player back in 1959, before he signed for Wednesday. Johnny is still alive! Does anyone have any suggestions how I might contact him? I know he moved on to Rotherham and Halifax but he did run a sports shop close to Hillsborough, so perhaps he's still based in Sheffield.
When he played for Rotherham he led the team out to Manfred Manns Mighty Quinn record always a feel good time
My husband and I have many happy memories watching Johnny at Millmoor and singing the mighty Quinn he has a special place in our hearts.We took Derek Dalton to watch him.Best wishes,Joyce & Richard Lindsay.
This lovely man is my cousin whom I have not seen for over 50 years. His Mum and my Mum were sisters. I would love to contact him, can anyone tell me where he is now living ( if he will allow, of course). Anyway up, I send him much love.
Hi, I'm the daughter of John Quinn. He lives in Barnsley and is 80 this May. He's been in hospital recently and is currently in rehabilitation.
Much love x
