Default Alan Fox

Just seen that Alan has passed away. Great player for us and lovely man. Got to know him well during my time on Supporters Association committee. Very sad day. Condolences to Jean and the family.

Very sad news. Before my time, but one of my dads heroes and I was lucky enough to meet him on a few occasions when he came to the Racecourse as a guest.

RIP Alan

Wrong Fox!!!

Alan was a centre half and a pretty good one at that late fifties / early sixties from memory.

Sad news.

Steve Fox was the winger and exciting to watch at times

Alan Fox was a true legend and I was lucky enough to see him play in his last 2 seasons. Once I was old enough to know what football was all about I would hear my Dad, my brother, my uncles and cousins saying what a great centre half he was... and he was!

If my memory serves me right when he finally moved on he was replaced by Ray Mielcarek - another fans favourite and hard man!

RIP Alan - you were a Wrexham legend & hero to us all.

Default Re: Alan Fox

Alan became a friend and attended a good few matches at the Racecourse in recent years. He was a lovely man and sadly his wife Jean passed away a few months ago. Alan came originally from Halkyn, and although he had been away from the area for many years, he was still homesick. He had developed a thick Geordie accent having married a Geordie lady and having lived in Hartlepool for many years. On a family visit to Wrexham a few years ago, Alan asked if there were any Male Voice Choir concerts taking place and in fact the Rhos Male Voice Concert was taking place that evening. I managed to get him and his family tickets and he thoroughly enjoyed himself. Alan was Welsh to the core no matter how long he had been an exile. I kept in touch with Alan on the phone, and always enjoyed our chats. A few months ago I was due to meet him and his family in Chester but wasn't to be. Alan will be missed by many. RIP.
