John Sissons

Clubs played for: West Ham United, Sheffield Wednesday, Norwich City, Chelsea (1962-1974).

Born: 1945

Birthplace: Hayes, Middlesex


Position: Forward

Biography: Dave Sexton's last major signing for the club, when he was recruited for 70,000 from Norwich City in August 1974. The left-winger had clearly seen better days and he struggled to make a impact. Despite starting the first ten games of the season, he found himself out in the cold as soon as Sexton departed the club and only made three more appearances before his contract was cancelled, seven months after he arrived. Became the youngest player to score in a Cup Final in 1963 and now lives in Cape Town, South Africa where he is a partner in a successful motor products and warranty firm.

Sissons, John Just want to say that John was my favorite ever West Ham player... I didn’t see much of him during the 60’s / 70’s as I’m from Dublin.. Only got to see him the Goal / Shoot mags..But I went to see him in a friendly Match when he had signed for Sheffield Wednesday when they played in Dublin ... Happy Days...⚒⚒

Sissons, John I played with John in the Colts from 1959. His knickname was 'chicken' as he had a distinct dislike of the physical side of the game ! My job during Tuesday and Thursday night training (I was still at school at the time ) was to kick him off the park at any and every opportunity in order to toughen him up !! Obviously didn't do him any harm !?!
