Alan Skirton - 1939-2019

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of former Arsenal winger, Alan Skirton.
Alan played on the wing for the Gunners from 1959 to 1966, when his pace and power earned him the nickname ‘The Highbury Express’. In all, the man from Bath - who went on to contribute greatly to the recent rise of Yeovil Town as their commercial manager - scored 53 goals for us in 153 appearances. That nickname, along with his induction into our prestigious 100 Club, gave Alan much pride.
