Fletton Secondary School, Leicester City, Kettering
5/11/1926 - 11/01/2010
I attended the Thanksgiving Service which was ably conducted by the Rev Richard
Longfoot at Stilton Church on Friday 22nd January 2010. Johnny was a student at Fletton Secondary School, excelled
at all sports and athletics. He played football for Peterborough Boys and Leicester City for whom he played in the
1949 Cup Final against Wolves at Wembley. He ended his career with Kettering Town. He died following a few months
illness and his popularity and esteem was registered by a packed church.
There must have been quite a few ex-school friends but I only recognised Alec
Worracker. Leicester City were represented.
