Wasn't he in the army based in Germany at the time he played for us? I think he used to travel from Germany to play for us every week. 

Apologies if I've got the wrong player but I think I'm right.

Very sad news - Quinny was one of my all time hero’s in a great Wednesday team - wasn’t he the first Wednesday player to play in all eleven positions (including keeper)?

 

RIP

Such a pleasant and helpful guy along with Gerry.

 

He used to provide sponsorship labels on shirts and stitch them on too (maybe that was Carol?), while Gerry provided  trophies from the Middlewood shop.

 

if you know a nicer, more thoughtful guy. please introduce me!

Off topic but on the subject of that song, what on earth is it about? Good job it was turned into a chant absolutely senseless otherwise

Another player who was transformed by a change of position. Just as Torry says, he wasn’t initially everyone’s favourite  but he grew into his new roll and became outstanding .

So sad so soon after Gerry.

Another proper footballer and proper gent.

One of my early memories of going to Hillsborough as a nipper with my Dad.

Johnny Quinn having to get leave from the army on Saturdays to play for Wednesday.

 

R I P Johnny one of my all time favourite players.

I knew Johnny well.

He was my landlord as I rented the flat above the sports shop on Middlewood Road


Johnny and Gerry Young would be in the shop all day and I'd nip down with a cup of coffee for a chat about all things Wednesday 

One thing I'll remember Johnny for the most though is that he was ALWAYS smiling


I've never once spent time with Johnny Quinn where he wasn't grinning, smiling and happy. 

He was also a very calm, very chilled man who was just really really nice bloke.

The fact that Johnny and is lifelong pal Gerry have passed within a few days of each other is fitting too. Two blokes who were inseperable.


RIP JOHNNY

Totally agree; bought all my son's trainers from Johnny and got a free football for being a good customer. Johnny and Gerry always have time for a chat. They were stalwarts of the first Owls team I remember. Both sadly missed. RIP
