One of his hobbies is photography and you will have probably seen many of his photos of the Abbey Stadium.
Being also a supporter of non-league football Alan is a ground hopper visiting as many non league grounds as possible whenever he can. While doing this he has written reports about the grounds visited. Some of these grounds and clubs sadly no longer exist.
He comments "I used to travel to non league grounds when the Us were away and take photos of each one. I wrote about my visits and each one appeared in the Non League Magazine as a ‘Diary"
Unfortunately, the magazine had to close down and decided to turn his writings from each month into a book
