Three Cheers for Al!

Ahead of Sunday’s friendly against the Harrow Wayfarers, (half of*), Alan’s ashes were buried at the Stoke Rec.

The ceremony was led by Alan’s partner Elaine, and Paul Worsfiold, six time Stoke captain and Alan’s nephew, also said a few words.

The Sunday XI selected that day had, by chance, a number of long-serving Stoke players and members who were close to Alan, and Andy Page also travelled to attend.

After a brief speech and the pouring of the ashes in a small hole in front of the sign, three cheers rang out for one of Stoke’s true greats.
