Johnny Raper is a good bloke, from my father's generation and no nonsense fella who would offer a helping hand to those in need. I know he has always been generous with his time. Indeed, I recall he offered a helping hand to the Club on numerous occasions, particularly during one Leagues Club board election when a supporter's group when gaining some traction just prior to the election. John Raper was encouraged to run as well, effectively splitting the opposition vote, thus keeping the incumbents in power. Ah well, that's politics. And Johnny is a Club man through and through. A ripper of a bloke. Ring-a-ding-ding! ..
