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 As teenager with a few friends we went to watch Alun and the team train.... It was around 1968/9... of course we thought he was gorgeous (and he was)...and when he "accidentally " bumped into me on the side line on a break....wow.....well...I'll never forget that!! Great days!! I live in Australia too....good one Alun...

Evans, Alun I remember Alan (fondly) at Liverpool..a defender went to hammer the ball clear but it hit Alan on his backside and cannoned back into the net for a Liverpool goal .

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

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?
