LIVERPOOL FC COMES TO SANDRINGHAM
In 1986, Liverpool FC star Alun Evans (yes THAT Liverpool) joined Sandringham, and in a 26 games season scored 19 goals, following up with 2 goals in 1987. Alun is an English former footballer who made his name as a centre forward in the Liverpool side rebuilt by Bill Shankly at the start of the 1970s, then went on to play for Aston Villa and Wolves and others. He had originally come to Australia to play with South Melbourne, but ended up getting married and having a family here, and had a small painting business (they clearly didn’t get paid what Premier League payers get now!).
