Re: [GRIFFON] Alan Mason (Hinckley Athletic/United/A.F.C.) or Reply Privately

Griffon has captured perfectly the way that Alan worked tirelessly to support and help Hinckley Athletic in particular but also Hinckley United and latterly Hinckley AFC where the Alan Mason column in their programme contained wonderful memories and statistics from years gone by about football in Hinckley.

Alan was a great friend of mine for many years. Our friendship came about through our shared love of Hinckley Athletic and football in general. We travelled many miles together and watched football in all parts of the country. In the past few years after the demise of Hinckley United and Alan's health not being so good he still enjoyed reading programmes that myself, Dave Makins and Kirby Knitters would get for him from our travels.

Alan was a true friend, a real kindly gentleman in every sense of the word and a superb archivist of all things related to Hinckley football and he had an unrivalled knowledge of club histories and non league programmes. RIP Alan, you were a great friend to me.
