Updated: 11-08-22I was a good friend of your brother Alan. We served in The Royal Green Jackets together in Germany, Northern Ireland, and Winchester. I just wondered if he is still around so we could catch up after nearly 45 years. My email address is attached. I would be most grateful.
Updated: 11-08-22Hi there. I played for Eden FC in Auckland and Vic had just arrived a few months earlier as their coach. He played in a few matches. Fond memories of him. Nice jovial man and a very good coach. I wish him everything of the best.
Updated: 11-08-22Alan was truly one of the greats. He was Sheff. Utd's best player for many a season and I will never know why none of the big clubs came in for him, or if he would have moved anyway.
Updated: 10-08-22Hi Kevin. Been trying to get in touch with you for years. I was a Stoke City FC apprentice in the mid-70s as a goalkeeper under the watchful eye of the great Gordon Banks, but you were my hero between the sticks. I still hate Ray Graydon for his very lucky penalty rebound off the post goal in the League Cup final in 1975. You were the best goalkeeper in the world in my eyes and wish I could either meet you or get in touch somehow, please. All the best. Mike

Updated: 10-08-22Played one Saturday morning for the school with him. We won 5-3 and he scored all 5.One goal going around 3 defenders and the goalkeeper. I was standing on the other post but he still wouldn’t pass it across and walked away grinning! LOL Some player he was!
Updated: 09-08-22Heard Steve Coppell in interview where he said that Derek Statham was the most difficult opponent he had to regularly face and rarely got the better of him. Praise indeed.
Updated: 09-08-22Played with Alan at Charlton between 1967 and 1969. Please send him my best wishes when you see him next time.
