    A strong and direct left winger with awesome power in his boots. He was a regular feature on the left flank for years and represented England in the 1958 World Cup finals in Sweden while he was a second division player. No mean feat!

    Rainhill-born Alan gave the club outstanding service from the day he made his debut against Middlesbrough as an 18 year old on 7th February 1953 until the last of his 354 League appearances in the final fixture of the 1962-63 season. Peter Thompson was signed from Preston North End to fill the left-wing role that Alan had made his own for so long and he moved on to Tranmere Rovers in October 1964. He made his farewell appearance for Liverpool in the club's historic opening European tie against Reykjavik in September 1964, despite not having played in a single League match during the whole of the previous season!

    Alan had passed his 30th birthday by a few days when he moved to Tranmere and he was perhaps unlucky to just miss out on the glory days which were around the corner, having to settle for a Second Division championship medal as his only major honour with the club. He had just begun to establish himself as a first-team regular when the club was relegated in 1954 but missed only a handful of games over the next 8 seasons before promotion was finally achieved back into the top division.

    A' Court is the youngest Liverpool player to make 200 league appearances for the club, aged 24 years and 89 days.

    He died in Nantwich, Cheshire 14 December 2009


    Other clubs:
    Prescot Celtic (amateur), Prescot Cables (amateur), Tranmere, Norwich
    Life President of TEPS...The Ellipsis Preservation Society.

    The less said about this the better tbh, if Mascherano had stayed maybe we wouldn't have plummeted so fast.

    He's probably too honest.

    I like the lad. Hope he finds a club in the summer and goes and enjoys the rest of his career.

    Very good

    On a side note, I met that Dave at the Watford game. Strange fella. He tried to become the new Indy in the summer and got proper caught out on Twitter. Weird guy

    We can probably keep him forever and not play him again he'd still be happy.
