I AM writing in the hope that your readers may be able to assist a friend of mine, Kevin Carlin, and I in locating former Liverpool FC player Alec Lindsay.

He managed The Foundry Arms in Leigh quite some time ago but Kevin has heard that Alec is back in the Leigh area.

I would like to get in touch with Alec to ask if he will sign his picture in my Liverpool Player by Player book.

I have been obtaining various former players’ signatures for quite some time now and have written to many worldwide.

It’s a hobby and a bit of a challenge.

I am 74 years old, have a Liverpool season ticket and have followed the Reds since my first game in 1955.

Several months ago Kevin and I attended a sports night in Liverpool. He bid for and got a FA Cup Final signed shirt and the only two signatures missing were John Toshack’s and Alec’s.

He is now trying to obtain both.

If anyone can help please call me on 0151 520 1932 or Kevin on 0151 287 1410.
