Jabba's Comments

Known as one of the better keepers from the lower divisions, Humphreys was signed by Leeds and didn't quite live up to expectations. He lost his place to Tom Younger, and a year later the emergence of Gary Sprake meant he had no future at Leeds, so he dropped down into non-league football with Gravesend and Northfleet before returning for a few seasons with Mansfield and Chesterfield.

Ian Gledhill says: I am sure Alan Humphreys had some involvement with the England Under 23 set-up while he was at Leeds. Whether he actually played is another matter but I seem to remember him being called up for international squads. My recollection of him is that he was an extremely agile goalie who regularly pulled off acrobatic saves.

R Spencer says: Alan was called up for the Under 23 against Hungary, but didn't play in the game. I met him when he was at Mansfield Town and he ran a Sunday team called ONRYC, which produced two Chesterfield keepers of renown; Steve Hardwick who went to Newcastle and Steve Ogrizovic who went to Liverpool. Alan hasn't stopped talking for years!
