    I was at school with John. Same class. He was great at all sports and academically. We were quite good friends. I was always pleased to tell folks he went on to play for Ipswich under Bobbie Robson. I just googled him out of curiosity and found this page. Would be good to get in touch again.

  • Represented England at Youth/U-16 level at least once during the 1973-74 season. If you have details of these caps we would like to hear from you.

    I knew John well in the 70's and still trade xmas cards. One day he gave me and my wife a coupla tickets for a town game in the evening. Ipswich played Barcelona at Portman Road . He and Roger Osborne made sure a certain Johan Cruyff never got a kick as Town won 3-0

  • I saw John Stirk play for Chesterfield in the early eighties. He was a good player in a good team at that time. He scored in a cup semi final once ... Lots of people in Chesterfield remember him well.

    Mr Stirk is my form teacher at NPS and he's really good fun.

  • hello i played in goal for the above school team, john was centre half and captain, he was a class of his own, took the game serious, we had to win and most of the time we did, john did not like loosing , never scared to show his emotions if we lost, nice lad, his brother bobby played also good player, his dad like mine never missed a game.
