Spavin, Alan Met Alan playing golf at ORMOND Beach Fl. Great fun and very fit in 1992. We played a mini Ryder Cup with 2 Americans, and won !!! A really likeable guy and a good golfer.

Spavin, Alan Have very fond memories of playing on Sunday mornings in Ryelands Park,Lancaster (UK) in the late 60`s ,sometimes 50 aside with Alan being ref & playing (but never scoring)unlike Kel who liked to score the odd goal!

Spavin, Alan Easily the best inside forward never to play for England.I watched him in his prime at north end.

Spavin, Alan During the time Alan ran his soccer plex in Gaithersburg, Maryland, he also played in the local over 30 recreation league. He and Alan Kelly both played for a few years on the same team (Kel played in the field) with a group of us guys who had never played as youngsters, although most of us had played other sports like basket ball as kids. It was a learning experience for us which Spavin clearly enjoyed being a part of - why else would he be playing with us? He never shot on goal unless 'provoked' by poor sportsmanship from the other team, but provided great passes to the rest of us that we could usually screw up somehow. I played until I was 55 but never had as much fun or learned as much as teaming with Alan and Kel.

Spavin, Alan The best manager Telford United ever had (no money to spend). Made Geoff Hurst look like A Sunday league pub manager RIP SPV....
