Foggon, Alan First played against Fog at schoolboy level, Gateshead v West Stanley when he was the biggest and strongest lad on the pitch. We both played for Durham County Schoolboys, both joined Newcastle on schoolboy forms. His strength and goal scoring got him into the first team whilst still a teenager and he had a successful career whilst I drifted into non league after spells at Rotherham and Doncaster Rovers and pursued my career. A great lad with a great sense of humour, bumped into him a couple of times by chance and reminisced a bit of earlier times. A Fairs Cup hero for the Toon, Alan has the memories to treasure, but I have a great pension scheme!
