Jabba's Comments

Picked up from Burnley for £8000, Shackleton got off to a good start at Leeds, including an early hat-trick, but he was allowed to move to Everton and found his scoring touch deserting him. After spells with Nelson and Oldham, he left the professional ranks and played non-league football in the south.

Martin Slater says: I know alans son who lives with him in bromley Common he is a top bloke and a good laugh and by the sounds of it a top striker

Eddy Kenny says: Alan Shackelton was the best man at my wedding 50 years ago on the 12th of june this year. I would like to get intouch with him and hear from him.

Jess Shackleton says: I know that Alan is a very down to earth man and i love him dearly as he is my dad. He was a legend and still is with all the stories he still tells me to this day.
