Sad to hear that Alan Hodgkinson former Sheffield United and England goalkeeper had died.  I recall a match in the 60’s when, during his team’s warm-up at the Anfield Road end, he invited a youngster from the crowd to come on to the pitch and take some shots at him.  He made sure the lad scored one as well.  A great gesture and much appreciated by the home fans.  A true gentleman.

He lived a hero in that youngsters eyes. Tremendous gesture. Won’t see it easily today. RIP
