That’s terrible news, I met John at a programme fair at Blundell park, lovely man he was. He was a great poster on here and spoke a lot of sense.

RIP John


Grimsby and proud!

A great shame. Jock was one of the people you could disagree with and still like! Cracking bloke. RIP Jock, condolences to your family.

All my life, though some have changed
Some forever, not for better
Some have gone, and some remain
All these places had their moments
With lovers and friends, I still can recall
Some are dead, and some are living
In my life, I've loved them all."

Horrible news. He was a really lovely bloke and sent me, free of charge, his home made chilli chutney a few times. And it was delicious. Condolences to his family, he will be sorely missed by many.

Unbelievably sad news. Struggling to take this in. John was a great friend to me and to the Mariners Trust. He ran the programme Shop at Town for several years and passed on a lot of his knowledge to me. His help from afar during Operation Promotion was fantastic.
His enthusiasm for lower league football especially with Auchinleck Talbot was legendary. The 'Bot have lost a great volunteer. I've lost a very good friend.
Sleep well mate...

This is very sad sad news. I was hoping when I saw the thread title it would be a happier update, but you always have that sneaking fear it is bad news.

Rest in Peace John. Never met you but your posts on here were always welcome. Mainly because your humanity, and not a little wit, shone through.


Through the door there came familiar laughter,
I saw your face and heard you call my name.
Oh my friend we're older but no wiser,
For in our hearts the dreams are still the same.

Like most I never met John, had dealings with him GTFC memorabilia.
Also made a few bob on his inside information on Auchinleck Talbot.

Just found this on Auchinleck Talbot FC, nice to put a face to the name.

Feels like a lost a good friend, will miss his contribution to the Thefishy.

My condolences to the family at this very sad time.

John was one of my favourite posters and a man whose views on football, life and politics very much aligned with mine. Never met the guy and it's nice to put a face to the name. He is very much as I imagined him to be, a kindly looking man.

I hope that the genuine outpouring of respect for Jock is of some comfort to those he leaves behind. I always looked forward his contributions to this site. He is solely responsible for my checking the Auchinleck Talbot score of a weekend - a habit I intend to continue. RIP.

As gutted as when we lost the Icenian. Great poster, loved his Talbot stuff and his passion for the game in general. Had great views on life  and his compassionate political views chimed with me too. Just seemed like a thoroughly decent bloke. Deepewt sympathies to those who knew him well.

RIP John and love and condolences to the family.

I wonder if he is the same John Holroyd I knew from either the Sandringham Road area or Clee Grammar?

Regardless I loved his passion for the Talbot and enjoyed his posts very much.

If it is the same John Holroyd, he has changed physically from knowing him in year 1 of college in 1970.

I have lost track of college years but the John I knew would be about 70.

What a terrible shame. He was a great poster on here and it seems from all the stories and replies he was just a top bloke in general. Rest in peace Jock

Quoted from The Yard Dog
Like most I never met John, had dealings with him GTFC memorabilia.
Also made a few bob on his inside information on Auchinleck Talbot.

Just found this on Auchinleck Talbot FC, nice to put a face to the name.

Feels like a lost a good friend, will miss his contribution to the Thefishy.

My condolences to the family at this very sad time.

RIP John, UTMM
thanks

Extremely sad news and I'm sure that I like many others could read one of his posts and disagree wholeheartedly then read another and think ooh you're absolutely right there.
Going to be a missed poster and no mistake, not forgotten very soon either.

Very sad news indeed.  Having seen his pic now I remember him from the old programme shop in the club shop many years ago.

RIP John.
