John's arrival at Millmoor in a double transfer from Millwall with Tony Towner helped to spark a great revival in Rotherham United's fortunes as they stormed to the Division Three championship.
He played a vital role in midfield helping to provide several goals for the front men while weighing in with six of his own.
But the following season he couldn't hold down a regular place until the beginning of March when he went on to play the remaining 14 games during which time he netted eight goals. That earned him a more regular place again in 1982/83 when he hit nine goals although his hat-trick in a 3-1 home win against Blackburn Rovers on May 7th, 1983, couldn't avoid relegation to Division Three.
When he left Rotherham, he had taken his league appearances for them to exactly 100.
1980/81: League apps 34 goals 6 Cup apps 2
1981/82: League apps 21+4 goals 10 Cup app 1
1982/83: League apps 31+2 goals 9 Cup apps 4 goals 2
1983/84: League apps 7+1 Cup apps 4

Millers League record...100 apps 25 goals

Millwall League record...158 apps 35 goals

Career League record...400 apps 69 goals
