21-04-20 Joseph Ashmall
As a young apprentice pro at latics i remember alan well he was as hard as nails and as a Centre-half myself i tried to play the game like him for the rest of football days
i was interested to find out what happened to alan i lived in the same street as him and in about 20 houses we had him and john mclaughlin ex clyde, dunfermline player
A great player for Ashton Utd and we all have fond,memories of Alan playing at the cross.
We would love to have Alan as a guest at Hurst Cross at match.
The Iron Man......was walking to the game one Saturday from Sholver...a car stopped and gave us a lift.....Allan Lawson....a thoroughly nice nice bloke......
John Fitzpatrick of Man United thought he was hard....he ran into Lawson and just slid to the ground ...funniest thing i ever saw at BP...
Do you have any interesting, happy, or humorous memories of Alan?
If so, please let us know and we will be happy to share them with the world!
