Fulham Broadway

Hudson Tribute

Started by Fulham Broadway,

Saturday 15th December sees a tribute evening taking place at Tones Bar (North Cheam, Surrey) for former Chelsea star Alan Hudson. Bar owner and one of the Chelsea supporters featured in the recently released DVD “Blue Revolution” Tony Millard is hosting the evening. As well as Alan appearing in a question and answer session, there will be other surprise guests.The tribute comes ten-years after Alan was nearly killed in a road traffic accident that should have taken the use of his legs. Now, although he is still somewhat handicapped by the injuries he sustained, Alan is, nevertheless, remarkably still energetic and full of life.He has gone on to write two books, namely “The Working Man’s Ballet” – his autobiography – and “The Tinker And The Talisman”, a look at the buy-out of Chelsea by Roman Abramovich and Claudio Ranieri’s reign under him as manager.Although injury kept him out of the 1970 FA Cup winning side, he was of course, a member of the team that went on to lift the European Cup Winners Cup the following season. However, despite being a prodigious talent, he fell out with the then manager Dave Sexton and joined Stoke City in 1974 for what was, for the Potteries side, a bargain price of £240,000.Although Alan returned to Chelsea in 1983, illness first and then injury prevented him from adding to his Blues appearances and he left the club a year later.A ticket to spend ‘An Evening With Alan Hudson’ costs £10 including a buffet. Further details can be obtained by calling Tones Bar on 0208 641 8224.
