John Kerr Passes

John Kerr, who played for the Dips during the 1976 & 1977 seasons, passed away from heart disease on June 19. He was a leader in the 1979 movement to unionize the NASL. Mr. Kerr was always kind and candid when I spoke with him, and he was his own harshest critic when discussing past matches. The Dips uncerimoniously released Kerr in the midst of the 1977 season, a move that puzzled many.
