Alan Roy Thompson
I bumped into Alan many years ago at the Rec.
We became rugby buddies, and travelled far and wide as ever hopeful Bath supporters (talk about the triumph of hope over experience!)
From Gloucester and Leicester to Newcastle, Glasgow and Edinburgh. From Galway and Dublin to Lyon, Parma and Verona.
This picture was taken on a freezing but sunny French railway station in January 2006.
Always hugely entertaining company, a good friend and drinking companion, and an all round lovely bloke.
We’ll miss him, and will be raising a glass to him at the Rec when we’re all allowed to watch the greatest team on earth again (sorry Al, I don’t mean The Villa)
