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

Surprised and deeply saddened. I was only communicating to him around 2 weeks on here.

Hope your somewhere better now Jock looking down on us 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.

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.

RIP John.

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.

Just an idea, maybe we could club together to purchase a GTFC have his name printed on the back and send it up to Auchinleck Talbot.

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.

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.
