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

Evans, Alun I remember Alun playing for Aston Villa in the early 70's.He was quite a classy player who never got the recognition he truly deserved. I believe he now lives in Kidderminster, West Midlands.

Evans, Alun I have some really fond memories of the time I spent playing with Alun in Australia. It would be great to get back in touch to reminisce about the times we had. Could anyone put me in contact please?

Do you have any interesting, happy, or humorous memories of Alun?
If so, please let us know and we will be happy to share them with the world!
