Alan Phillip Kennedy (born 31 August 1954) is a former footballer who played for Liverpool during their halcyon days in the late 1970s and early 1980s who had a knack of scoring in major cup finals. Born in Sunderland, England, Kennedy, a full back based on the left flank, somehow slipped through his local club Sunderland''s net and ended up coming through the ranks of derby rivals Newcastle United F.C., eventually playing against Liverpool in the 1974 FA Cup final at Wembley Stadium. The 19 year old Kennedy and his team-mates were soundly beaten 3 0. Two years later Kennedy would be a Wembley loser again when Manchester City F.C. beat Newcastle 2 1 in the Football League Cup final.
