The league`s general and fixture secretary Alan Constable said: "I am so sad to report that John died this morning, having never recovered consciousness following the massive heart attack he suffered last Thursday. He was aged 75.
"I have been in touch with his brother Keith, and details of funeral arrangements etc., will follow in due course.
"John became league chairman in 1997 and has been the longest-serving chairman in the league`s history. "John was truly devoted to football and a hugely popular man who will be missed by all who knew him."
