Former Winger Owen Dies
Saturday, 6th Aug 2022 12:23

Aled Owen, a member of Sir Alf Ramsey’s squad which won the Second and First Division titles in successive seasons, has died aged 88.

Owen, who was born in Brynteg, Anglesey, joined Town from Tottenham Hotspur, for whom he played one senior game, in July 1958 having started his career with Bangor City.

While with the Blues the pacy winger usually operated on the right and made 34 appearances, scoring three goals, before departing for Wrexham in July 1963. He ended his career with a spell with Holyhead Town.

During the 1960/61 season in which Ramsey’s side won the Second Division Owen made eight appearances and scored once and in the following campaign he played just the one league match, the Boxing Day 1-0 home victory over Leicester City, as well as three in cup competitions, as the Blues carried off the First Division title at the first attempt.

R.I.P. Aled,
While not a regular starter whenever called on you gave your all but you had a couple of feller's called Roy Stephenson ahead of you on the right and Jimmy Leadbetter on the left that limited your game time but you could always be relied on when given the nod.
