John Milkins was an English professional footballer (soccer player) whose career ran from the start of the sixties to the end of the seventies. Born in Romford on 3 January 1944 Milkins won one England Youth cap whilst with his first club Portsmouth, to whom he was to give 15 years of loyal service . He made his debut for the first team in their very last match in the English First Division, although he was to wait a further two years for his next appearance. In all Milkins was to make over 300 appearances for Pompey and was to prove such a popular player that in 1970 he was awarded the inaugural Player of the Year trophy. The following year he was awarded a testimonial against local rivals Saints which resulted in an ignominious 0 7 defeat. In the 1974 close season he was sold to Oxford United for whom he played sporadically to his last league appearance in May 1979. After a brief spell as player-manager of now defunct Southern League side Waterlooville he retired to run a sports shop/ snooker hall consortium.
