Overview

Alan Young's story is one of an honest striker who played at the highest level of the domestic game (between 1974 and 1988) but also experienced human misery at its lowest once his playing career was over. The account of his playing career is compelling enough but there is an entirely new tale to tell once he retires and he exposes his innermost thoughts with a frank and insightful, though always articulate, delivery. Youngy doesn't just recount the good times of his playing career; he also offers valuable insight and moments of perception and understanding of some of the darkest days of his life. He has incredible stories to recount of the biggest names in football; Jimmy Sirrel, Sam Allardyce, Gary Lineker, Jock Wallace, Neil Warnock, Eddie Gray and Kenny Dalglish. He currently works as a football broadcaster on BBC Radio Leicester and is a columnist for the Leicester Mercury.
