I have been informed of the sad news that John Newton (the Professor) has passed away at the age of 78 John had died suddenly of what seems to be a heart attack. He was in a care home in Saint Andrews .The family hope that his death notice will be in this Fridays Guardian. John was an avid supporter and would travel down on the train to the games. He was a match day steward for many years and had quite the collection of football programs. He will also be know for his love of “soor plooms” and his collection of pushbikes, apparently the only rooms not to have would seemed to be the bathroom and kitchen!
Rest in peace John, you will be missed.
