Having appeared in the Scottish National Cricket League, John was an integral member of the 1999 World Cup side before becoming a professional cricketer with Northamptonshire. Unfortunately, injury problems limited his appearances as an opening bowler and he was released at the end of the 2003 season. His time in England limited his availability for the Scottish side, although he was released to play in the final National Cricket League games of 2003.
