John 'JJ' Melligan

'JJ' came to Aggborough on loan from local 1st Division side Wolves and has impressed so much that we would like to keep him.

In his first spell with us he scored 7 times in 12 games.  He was then re-called by Wolves, because of injuries to their squad, but then came back to us for the rest of the season.

He's very fast and is not afraid to take a player on and his sublime skills saw him winning a handful of caps for the Republic of Ireland U21 team.

At the end of the season Wolves were promoted to the Premiership and great things were forecast for JJ.  He failed to make the team and after continued pressure from Ian Britton the Wolves eventually allowed JJ to come back to Aggborough for a further one month loan.

It couldn't have come at a better time with the Harriers struggling near the foot of the table and Brit's job on the line but once Brit was sacked and Jan Molby came back to take charge JJ left to go back to the Wolves.

He then went out on loan to Doncaster but was released be Wolves at the end of the season.

With everyone expecting him to sign for us he sprung a surprise and joined arch rivals Cheltenham prior to the start of the 04-05 season and lasted four years here before joining Leyton Orient in June 2007.  He left there by mutual consent at the beginning of February 2010.
