Member of the Southport FC Former Players Association
Full Name: Alan Wilson
Normal Position: Midfielder
Born: 17/11/1952(Dingle, Liverpool)

One of very few players who played in both the Football League and Non League for the club. He is joined by Paul Birchall, Tony Brookfield, George Dewsnip, Steve Joel (1 sub), Chris Kisby, Derek McClatchey, Micky Moore, Terry Nolan (1 sub), Tommy O\'Neil, Ray Pritchard and Cliff Woof in this club. However Alan played 134 Football League games scoring 13 goals, and 119 Non League games scoring 7 goals, he is therefore the only player to feature in both the FL and NL 100 Clubs. Alan was born in the Dingle in Liverpool and is still living there today. He works for Liverpool Council in the Parks and Gardens Department. Alan represented Liverpool schoolboys at centre-forward. He made one appearance for Everton in both the 1971/72 and 1972/73 seasons having been converted to a midfielder by Ray Henderson. Criticised by some for a lack of pace he more than made up for that by his passing ability and was always the first name on the team sheet. Alan also played NL football for Northwich Vics, Marine, South Liverpool and Droylsden. After we failed to gain re-election to the Football League Alan had a year at Torquay but returned in the 1979/80 season and made 27 appearances with his second debut coming in the 1-0 home defeat by Macclesfield in November 1979. He went on to make 27 appearances in the 79/80 season getting on the scoresheet once in a 2-1 defeat at Grantham, 15 in 80/81, no goals, 25 in 81/82, 2 goals, 39 in 82/83 with 3 goals and 13 appearances in 1983/84 with 1 goal. Alan�s final game at the club came on 10 October 1983, a game in which he scored the second goal in a 3-0 win at Rhyl.
