Biography: An England schoolboy international hailing from Merseyside, was picked up by United when he left school. After making his way through the junior teams, he was selected for the Central League side. He was a FA Youth Cup winner in 1963-1964 season. His only appearance for the first team came in place of the injured Denis Law for an FA Cup tie against Chester in January 1965, which saw him score in a 2-1 victory. But frustrated by a lack of first team opportunities, he asked for a transfer and moved to Wrexham, managed by former United star Jack Rowley. He emigrated to Australia in 1974 and after he finished playing for local clubs in the Sydney area, he worked for a couple of pharmaceutical companies as a supervisor in the manufacturing process. For over a decade, he has been running his own carpet and flooring retailing business based in Shelly Beach, New South Wales.

Kinsey, Albert Hi ,my sister Joan is married to Albie. As said, they are living in Queensland Australia. He is not very well at present with bowel cancer and more recently with dementia. As lots of older footballers have recognised it was possibly caused by heading. I did contact Man United, who got in touch and tried to include him in ex players zoom calls ,time difference caused problems. I spoke to Joan yesterday, she said they are watching the series on Wrexham and he is aware of what’s going on. Would it be possible to have some contact with the club while he is maybe has some recollections. I can give email address or phone number if required. Regards Rob Cormack

Kinsey, Albert I remember the good old days of Smithy (Ray Smith) and Albert. We walked back to the car after one match and put Sports Report on the radio. When the League’s leading goal scorers section came on Albert and Smithy were the two leading scorers in the Football League at that point in the season. Good days. Smithy has passed but Albert is still with us.

Kinsey, Albert Albert came back to preseason training over weight, he had enjoyed his pint and his dominoes in Runcorn .John Neal the Wrexham manager made him wear a skin divers wet suit and train in the very hot clothes drying room to lose weight , Albert really struggled, we would look in and take the Mickey. The enforced treatment worked and my old mate went onto score many more goals. I look back on this period we had a great team full of characters

Kinsey, Albert Playing at Gresty Road in Crewe, I once saw a shot of his hit the bar with such force that it didn't touch the ground until it was back in the other half of the field.
