Death of local football stalwart Alan Hawkins

LOCAL football stalwart Alan Hawkins, a founder member of the Rotherham Sunday League, has died aged 79.

Alan gave decades of service to the game, first alongside Brian Beeley when the league was formed in 1966, and latterly as its president.

He managed Clifton Hotel, the league's first winners, and occupied various committee positions down the years, helping maintain the competition as one of the most respected around.

A big Rotherham United supporter, Alan died in his sleep at the weekend.

Full tribute in Friday's Advertiser.
