Hall of Fame No. 35

Alf and Stu Park become the first brothers in our Hall of Fame

Alf Park (Midfielder, 1987 - 91)

Here are the first set of brothers to make it into the Hall of Fame!

As previously mentioned, Alf and Stu Park formed the backbone of Bill Brindley’s title-winning team in the Central Midlands League Supreme Division. But though they were siblings, their on-field presence offered a real contrast - Stu Park, who has already been inducted into our list of the club's most legendary 50 players to mark our 50th anniversary season, was a no-nonsense centre-half.

His brother Alfie Park, on the other hand, was a mercurial, gifted attacking midfielder who thrived in what is now known as the number 10 position behind the forward.

He could dribble, pass and read the game and he also weighed in with his fair share of goals. Probably one of the most talented midfielders ever to pull on a Poachers shirt, Alf's career at Tattershall Road was unfortunately dogged by injuries but he's still fondly remembered.

The first pair of brothers - but will they be the last?

Debut: 30 Sep, 1987 - Rossington Main 1, Boston FC 4 (FA Vase)
