MOSELEY have been rocked by death of shareholder and former director Alan Adam, who died this morning.

The 63-year-old was taken into hospital earlier in the week but after an operation related to a stroke, suffered a further stroke this morning. He passed away peacefully at 4:40am.

Alan will be remembered as one of the founding fathers of modern Moseley and for the relentless work he did in making the club what it is today.

After a long association with Moseley, both as a junior player and official, he came to the fore in 2002 when the club was in administration, looked to be leaving Birmingham and moving to Oxford.

However, Alan and a cohort of ex-players formed a consortium which successfully persuaded creditors to allow Moseley to stay in the Second City.

He was the driving force behind the move to their current home at Billesley Common and for many years was a voluble and passionate club representative at a national level.

In his professional life he was a successful accountant who specialised in insolvency with KPMG. He is survived by two brothers, a sister and his wife Morag.
