    Moody Blues - Alan's visit today

    Ok, it was 0-0, and we've seen better games (tho there were certainly some plus points), but sometimes match day can be more than just about the 90 minutes of football. Alan traveled down from his native North East yesterday with his daughter Claire, and today made an emotional return to The...

    Have you been to Shrewsbury?

    Next away match Shrewsbury have you been there previously? My first visit was 27th October 1973, it was in the days of no organised transport and getting there was very expensive until we found a "Merrymaker" excursion. These were cheap trips aimed at families to visit places of historic...

    Alan Moody

    Sadly learned today, that Alan has had both his legs removed due to circulation issues. He is a scratch golfer, and I think went on to earn his living at a golf club after football. He was a good servant for our club, and for those of us old enough to remember him, was a fine player. I would...
