David Johnson

Post by Shed on tour » Wed Nov 23, 2022 12:37 pm

Has passed away at the age of 71. Remember watching him play for us on many occasions in the 70’s. Had a good chat with him once on a train back to London after a home game.
RIP David

RIP David Johnson

May be wrong, but I think he may have played v Scotland @ Hampden one year. Late 70's

Super player for Town, not terribly old, RIP.
I believe the Men's clothes shop he opened in the town is still there, " Jonty's in Tacket Street.

Marko, remember him playing in the 5-1 game at Wembley when both him and Beattie scored.

RIP “ Jonty”. I met him not long after he joined the club. Really nice bloke and very down to earth tbh.

It always amazes me how many of our past hero’s ( our club and other clubs), all seem to die so young, and certainly below the National age of longevity.
