Alan Mason (Hinckley Athletic/United/A.F.C.) or Reply Privately

Anyone who has had anything to do with football in Hinckley will know the name of Alan Mason, the death of whom was announced yesterday following a long illness. To many he was 'Mr Hinckley Athletic' in the years before the club split into two.

For many years he edited, wrote and produced the programme for the club he loved, his attention to detail was enviable. At one time he set up his own company in Leicester producing and printing programmes for the Hinckley clubs and such as Wellesbourne but he was so fastidious that he found it hard to make it pay. He would work long hours writing and making sure everything was as it should be, you knew you would get your moneysworth from an Alan Mason production!

It was not just about programmes though, he worked hard for the club in various capacities and above all he was a quiet well-spoken friendly Gentleman who had time for everyone.

On a personal note it was my priviledge to have known him for many years, a true lover of football, he will be much mourned amongst his masses of friends in Hinckley and elswhere, his reputation preceded him and remained with all who crossed his path! RIP Alan.
