The club's oldest player has been unmasked . . . as a top goalkeeper.

Alun Hughes, who is 85, pulled on the gloves during training on Thursday, January 19, and showed off his amazing talents.

He saved a succession of goal-bound shots with his feet and hands, including a thunderbolt from Andie Lissemore.

Players on both sides applauded his performance when he handed over to less able team-mates.

As goals went in past his hapless successors in a 6-2 defeat, the chant went up: "Bring back Alun!"

Alun's talents as a goalie have been a secret because - until now - he has only ever played in an outfield position, showing off his cultured left foot.

One stunned player said: "It was a really great spell of goalkeeping by Alun. Everyone - on both sides - loved it."

Nobody should have been really surprised
