Alan Waddle (born 9 June 1954) is a former English footballer who played as a striker. Waddle began his career with Halifax Town, before joining Liverpool as a 19 year-old in 1973. He made 22 appearances for the club, scoring once, but he lost his place in 1975, and only played one game in his remaining two years, although he did make it onto the bench for the 1977 European Cup Final, before leaving that summer. He spent a year at Leicester City before moving on to Swansea City, where he had his most productive spell, working under manager John Toshack, the player he had understudied at Liverpool. He moved on in 1980, and had a much-travelled career, which included two returns to Swansea (one as commercial operations manager), and spells in Hong Kong and Qatar. He is the cousin of Chris Waddle. Alan currently resides in Australia and is now the co-coach of Demon Knights Football Club at the Northern Inland level.
