Comfort, Alan I often wondered what became of the school boy wonder footballer, Alan Comfort. I first played against him when we both performed above our years for our respective junior schools. We met twice in school cup finals, only I was on the loosing side on each of those occasions Later we played in the same district team although Alan was in the A team whilst I in the B. During secondary school we frequently met on the football pitch but on opposing sides. Our teams were much more evenly matched on these occasions but thankfully I didn't find myself marking Alan. Interesting to see Alan's career progression although I never would have expected him to have become a reverend. Good luck Alan.
