CLUB CAREER

ABOUT

All too often in his early days the scapegoat of an impatient City crowd. Alan Woollett was a tenacious central defender and a resilent carachter, betying his almost diffidant appearance with a stelly determination both in tackling opponents and in buidling a more amicable rapport with his vociferous critics.

A ingle off colour game, albeit in a vtial Sixth Round Cup tie with Everton in 1968, set the crowd on Alan's back. Some even went so far to blame for Manchester City's goal in the 1969 FA Cup Final, when he stood in for injured John Sjoberg, yet subsquently there were countless occasions when the conetra defender earned muc more than grudging cheer for his sterling back line performances.

Over the course of several seasons Alan looked as if he'd have to settle for becoming merely a fringe utillity member of the first team squad, but each time he bounced back to reclaim a senior berth and he was probably at his peark almost ten years after his debut, when regularly parntnering Jeff Blockley.>

The loyal clubman took a deserved from a friendly against Chelsea. In May 1977 and eventually close his career with a season at Northampton, in familier company of coach Clive Walker and on loan Paul Matthews. Woollett later took up a profession as prison officer.
