Alan had been with Hearts and left to play for Durban United in South Africa but was soon back with the Edinburgh side. After he joined Dundee United he became a regular in the side and in 1970-71 he was top scorer. Following the arrival of Jim McLean in December 1971 all players had to train in Dundee. For Alan, that was impossible due to his work commitments and he was allowed to join Hibs for a fee of 12,000 in mid January 1972.
