John Anderson was a central defender who joined Rovers on transfer deadline day in March 2004 from Hull City. When Paul Trollope was appointed caretaker manager of Rovers following Ian Atkins's departure from the club he took John on as his assistant, a position he held until the permanent appointment of Paul and Lennie Lawrence. He was released at the end of the 2005-06 season, having made a total of 54 league appearances for Rovers. He is now assistant manager of North Ferriby United, and as of June 2009, he combines this role with scouting players in the north of England for The Pirates.


John started his football career with his home town club, which were called Morton at the time he joined them before they changed their name to Greenock Morton in 1994. He played for them for seven seasons and made 205 league appearances, finding the back of the net on 28 occasions. In 2000 he moved to Livingston, where he stayed for two years and played 43 league games before making the move south to England to join Hull City. Despite being almost ever-present in his first season at Hull, he failed to make a single league appearance in his second term and he moved to Rovers on a free transfer near the end of the 2003-04 season. After two full seasons at the Memorial Stadium he was released on expiry of his contract and he briefly dropped out of football until being appointed as assistant manager of North Ferriby United in 2007.
