Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Allan Ball is an English former footballer. Born in Hetton-le-Hole, County Durham, Ball played as a goalkeeper, spending most of his professional career with Scottish club Queen of the South. Ball made 731 first team appearances for Queens, a club record, between 1963 and 1982. He also briefly played for Bishop Auckland, Stanley United and Gretna, and is now an Honorary Director with the Queen of the South. Ball had been an inside left as a youngster. He took over the green jersey when the Durham County schools goalkeeper - future F.A. Cup winner Jimmy Montgomery - was injured during a game. As a 15-year-old, Ball deputised four times for Harry Sharratt in Bishop Auckland's goal. He doubled his weekly income from working at South Hetton coal mine as a pit electrician by signing for Stanley United.show more
