Former player Alan Birchenall was taken ill at an awards ceremony in Leicester on Thursday night just before taking the stage to make a presentation.
'Birch' was taken to hospital where he is now receiving treatment. Alan is a great character who, despite is legendary status with the Foxes where he is still Club Ambassador, still has immense love for the Blades where he started his League career. He's pictured here with great friend Tony Currie.
All Alan's friends and extended football family at Bramall Lane wish him a very speedy recovery.
