The Club remembers Allan Brown

The Club were very sad to learn this week of the passing of Crook Town Legend Allan Brown.

Allan was a whole hearted player who joined Crook for the 1960-61 season and went onto make 337 appearances for Crook Town. Allan won the Amateur Cup twice with Crook Town – scoring the winning goal in the 1964 Amateur Cup Final and he was also a League Cup winner in 1960-61 and a League winner in 1962-63

Allan was so committed to the club that on semi-final day v Barnet he got married to his wife Ann in the morning and then played in the afternoon, Crook won, just as well! Although Ann said she was just as Crook Town daft as he was and it was never in doubt he would play that day.

Allan recently visited the Millfield to remember his playing days and a number of supporters and former players who remembered Allan tearing into the opposition box, daring them to tackle him, were at the Millfield to welcome him back and Club Chairman Vince Kirkup presented Allan with club merchandise as well as showing Allan the Legends picnic table named in his honour.

Our thoughts and condolences are with Allan’s wife Ann and all his family and friends
