Alan was a Welsh schoolboy international full-back who signed professional forms for Liverpool in May 1957 when he was 17 years old. Although he stayed at Anfield for over 6 years, he only played 5 times for the first-team.


When regular right-back John Molyneux was unavailable for the visit of Cardiff City a few days before Christmas 1959, Alan stepped in to replace him. The Welshmen won 4-0 but it was a significant day in the club's history, the first time Bill Shankly had been in charge of a Liverpool team.


'Shanks' only called on Alan on four more occasions, the only 4 games that Gerry Byrne missed during the club's return to the First Division in 1962-63. Alan moved on to Brentford that summer and made nearly 250 Football League appearances for the West-London club before the end of the decade.
