John got his first break in management at the now defunct Dublin City before the club folded in 2004. A short spell at Athlone Town was to follow before he joined Dundalk where despite earning promotion twice, he never managed the Lilywhites in the Premier Division as he departed the club in 2008.
John joined Pete Mahon as assistant manager at St Patrick’s Athletic from 2009-2010 before fulling the same role under Trevor Croly at both Shamrock Rovers and Bray Wanderers. John was named Drogheda’s assistant manager in November 2015.
