Obituary - Alan Myers 10th November 2021
It is with great sadness that we have learned that Chairman of HRFN (Hospital Radios’ Football Network) that provided commentary of all Everton and Liverpool fixtures for Radio Broadgreen has died.
Alan Myers was a big Blues fan and it was a privilege to join the network in 1986 and provide commentary to the blind & partially sighted fans at Goodison Park as well as radio commentary for hospital patients via Radio Broadgreen.
