Description

Alan Young was born in Kirkcaldy but played his entire professional career in English football with Oldham Athletic, Leicester City, Sheffield United, Brighton and Hove Albion, Notts County and Rochdale. Alan Young's story is one of a talented, brave striker who played at the highest level of the domestic game but also experienced human misery at its lowest once his playing career was over. The account of his playing and coaching career is entertaining and compelling with remarkable stories around some high profile personalities that are still involved in the game today. There is an entirely new tale to tell once he leaves the game he loves and he exposes his innermost thoughts with a frank and insightful, though always articulate, delivery. 'Youngy' doesn't just recount the good times of his playing career; he also offers valuable insight and moments of perception and understanding of some of the darkest days of his life. He currently works as a broadcaster on BBC Radio Leicester, summarising on the local radio coverage of Leicester City's current campaign.show more
