Ex-Newcastle and Liverpool full back Alan Kennedy knows a thing or two about football.
Alan is probably best remembered for his goals which helped the most successful Liverpool team ever to win two European Cups in 1981 and 1984.
Alan’s football career began at Newcastle United, where he made his debut as an 18-year-old in 1973. While there Alan played almost 200 games. In 1978 the British transfer fee for a full back was broken when £330,00 was paid for Alan to transfer to Liverpool. He went on to play over 350 games at Anfield.
Alan’s home town Sunderland was to become his next team and after spells abroad in the late 80’s he ended his career at Wrexham Football Club, having played his 500th match there.
