Alajuelense Home football shirt 1966 - 1967

1966 - 1967 Alajuelense home football shirt. Home shirt used by Alajuelense during the 1966 season in which the club earned their eleventh league title, after beating Saprissa in the first instance of a Costa Rican final.

Shirt #9 was used by club legend Errol Daniels, who was a prolific forward that has Alajuelense\'s goalscoring record (196 goals) and until 2013 also held the national record (the same 196 goals), which has been overtaken by Dominican-Costa Rican forward Víctor Núñez (who retired two years ago).

Daniels\'s record will be difficult to emulate as the entirety of his tally was scored while being an Alajuelense player. Daniels also was the top scorer of the Costa Rican first level for six non-consecutive seasons (the first five were straight between 1964 and 1968, while the last one was in 1970), and currently holds the joint national record of most goals scored in a single season (Daniels scored 41 goals in the 1967 season, which was not equaled until 2003 by Uruguayan striker Claudio Ciccia, playing for Club Sport Cartaginés during the 2002-03 season).

A nasty injury (which was a fracture) which sidelined Daniels for over a year stopped his tally on its tracks, and greatly hampered his ability to score. Daniels scored one goal during the 1971 season, however the season was only beginning when he was injured. When he returned he could only score one goal during the 1972 season, which was his last with Alajuelense. Daniels played his last competitive season as a Municipal Puntarenas player, however he was unable to score.

Daniels does not blame the available sports medicine of his playing career as a cause of the drop on his ability, however he admits that if today\'s sports medicine was available at the time he was injured, his playing career could have been extended for a few more years.
