Evans, Alun Alun was a very underrated player. Some great memories of his time with Liverpool, scoring in the 1971 FA Cup semi final v Everton, assisting with the winner taking us to Wembley. A brilliant hat trick in the Fairs Cup v Bayern Munich the same year. He will always be appreciated by Kopites everywhere.

Evans, Alun Alun Evans is the reason I support Liverpool. When he came to Liverpool in 1968 I was twelve years old. He was living with a landlady in Lawrence Road. He used to walk down our road, one day he stopped and played football with us, in the street. How times have changed.

Evans, Alun I was with Aston Villa as a youth in 1964/1965. The training ground was then in Witton Road. We were at training when a young blond crew-cutted lad joined us. It was Alun who having a look around the club with a view to signing. My abiding memory of Alun and his father is the way they put themselves out to come from Kidderminster to give me a lift to Villa Park for training whilst at the club for a few weeks. With his hairstyle, most of the young lads who came to see the players train thought he was Phil Woosnam's brother!

Evans, Alun I have fond memories of him as a kid. I was Liverpool mad and wrote off for autographs long before social media and he was the only one that answered and sent me a nice little note with his autograph at the end, bless him. I hope life is treating him well.

Dorian Davies, my brother and sister in law live in Aberdare, Steve and Diane Jones, do you know them?

Evans, Alun He went to Sion Hill school in Kidderminster. They ran a coach to the old Wembley when Alun played for England Schoolboys in the same team as Peter Shilton. His dad used to take him out on the school field after school was finished and practise for hours.

Evans, Alun Alun Evans is a relation of my dad. I am from Aberdare, South Wales and my grandmother and Alun’s were related. As a young boy in the 70’s I met Alun in Cefn Pennar, South Wales while he was visiting family. I am currently in Melbourne on holiday and would love to meet him again.

Evans, Alun Loved that guy. Just before coming to Liverpool Wolves came to Anfield and he starred with he great Derek Dougan. Played an immense one two with The Doog and I swear that was the reason he was signed !! Great memories. Good luck Alun.....

Evans, Alun Remember Alun as a youth trialist at Aston Villa early 60's. Great little player then.When we finished training at old Trinity Road training ground,walking back to Villa Park all the young school kids went after Alun for his autograph thinking (because of his crewcut hair) he was Phil Woosnams brother
