Mr Versatility was his name. But there was more to Alan Harper than being a jack of all trades. Harps or John Holmes to his close team mates was part of the successful Everton set up of the mid 80's under Howard Kendall.
Signed from the shite in the early 80's, he soon became a cult figure at Goodison mainly down to his bonce and his porn star mussy, hence the nickname John Holmes.
Harps worked on at the club at Academy level until a while ago, but his hair was scaring the kids that much, that he took the decision to move on.
People tend to forget however that Alan played 240 times for the Blues, winning countless honours, and scoring an FA Cup Semi Final goal against Sheffield Wednesday back in 1986.
