John played for Newcastle-under-Lyme Chess Club and its predecessor, Penkhull Chess Club for many years.
John was also a stalwart of Newcastle Bridge Club and would have been instrumental in Newcastle-under-Lyme Chess Club's tenancy at the Bridge Club.
As well as his playing and being Treasurer at Newcastle-under-Lyme Chess Club, John was a great supporter of Staffordshire Chess, not only as a player, but as a host of county matches at Newcastle Bridge Club.

For a few years he also played in the Cheddleton, Kidsgrove and Macclesfield Chess Club's internal tournaments.
