Alan Foggon

Date of birth23 February 1950
Place of birthChester-le-Street
NationalityEnglish
PositionMidfielder/Forward

A Tommy Docherty signing which never worked out. This left-sided striker quickly moved on.

The scorer of a marvellous goal in the Inter Cities Fairs Cup Final win against Ujpest Dozsa in 1969, Alan's erratic form led to his depart from St James' Park.

He enjoyed more sustained success at Middlesbrough.
