Quinn, Johnny Met him at his house once when I was selling frozen food door to door-he bought! Lovely man. Remember him playing for his all stars, playing inside forward and shouting to Gerry Young:
“ put it int hole Gerry!” RIP.

Quinn, Johnny I have been supporting Rotherham United since 1965 when my father first took me to Millmoor. Johnny Quinn is my all time favourite footballer and a top bloke for the charity work he did with the ‘Johnny Quinn All-Stars’ after retirement. Now nearing retirement myself, I have bought a motorhome, for touring, and named it ‘The Mighty Quinn’ after Johnny. The lettering is big and bold in red on the side of the van.

Quinn, Johnny I met john in the royal signals at catterick 1960/1 I gave him half of my chocolate bar whilst waiting in an immunisation queue we became good friends he was good fun and due to him being a football pro he got away with many duties e.g guard duties kitchen duties because he politely told sergeants he would refuse to play for the football team called northern command I think I would love to meet him again. I lost touch when he became gym instructor which I couldnt take part in due to the useless nco making a mess of an ingrown toenail .eventually leading to a medical discharge after 6 months .tel01228545940 taitbilly10@gmail.com cheers john if u read this gizzaring!!!!!

QUINN, Johnny 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.

Quinn, Johnny 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.

Quinn, Johnny 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.

Quinn, Johnny When he played for Rotherham he led the team out to Manfred Manns Mighty Quinn record always a feel good time

Quinn, Johnny 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.

QUINN, Johnny 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
