A Podful of Saints S3#17 ALLAN COCKRAM

A PODFUL OF SAINTS Welcome to Series Three of ‘A Podful of Saints.’ For about 40 minutes each week during the 2021-22 season three St Albans City stalwarts spout about the goings on at Clarence Park in a completely and utterly unofficial fan podcast. Three supporters – Lee Wood, Jake Ellacott and David Tavener – are veterans of the City media department and can claim to having worked extensively in promoting the club since back in the early 1980s. Series Three Episode Seventeen: Allan Cockram. Probably the most gifted player to have played for St Albans City; Allan Cockram. Our latest guest is someone whose life is an ongoing tale of football that has created so many fond memories down the years, including in this edition a surprising confession by Podder Lee Wood. Cockers played a couple of games Tottenham Hotspur but had his career cruelly interrupted by a serious injury before rebuilding it in the non-league game at Clarence Park. He talks about the beautiful game as only Cockers can and tells some wonderful tales from his days as both a player and manager. Last year he talked about his life in the game in a series of podcasts of his own, these can be heard here; ALLAN COCKRAM PODCAST - The birth of a complicated man. Email the Podders with anything to do with the SupersoarawaySaints and we’ll endeavour to reply and possibly include it in a future episode; We can also be contacted on Twitter: Recorded 28th October 2021
