Alan currently maintains the pitches and equipment at Costello FC, a club he has been involved for many years. As well as maintaining the pitches and equipment Alan is also Vice Chairman at the Club and coaches one of the club’s mini soccer teams
When people talk about Alan they say:
"If games are not able to be played at a weekend because of the pitch Alan takes it personal and he is always the first person to notify managers if a game won’t be on so that they know he has tried everything possible”
"Alan is at the clubhouse daily, tidying up, sorting out the equipment, cutting the grass, line marking, doing odd jobs to ensure everything is ready for the weekend matches"
“Alan stands out because he is so unassuming and just quietly gets on with it and does what is necessary. He cares about the football and he wants the players to have the best surface to play this wonderful game on”
