Just read that Alan Spavin has died today.

Best known for his time at Preston, Spav was signed by Sean Gallagher in 1976. I believe that for most of his career he had played in midfield, but Sean saw a role for him in the back four, which is where he played many of his games for City and was a very fine acquisition.

I understand that Spav hadn't had the happiest of times in the last few years. May he rest in peace.

I'm afraid that I have only vague recollections of Spav playing for Lancaster, the main one being on the day of his last (home?) game going on the pitch during the warm-up to get his autograph. Also of course that he was co-owner of the Spavin & Kelley sports shop that was where the bottom wetherspoons is now.
RIP Alan
