Correct me if I'm wrong, but if we place him on the transfer list it's essentially an invitation that anyone can take him for nothing? That's how other retained lists seem to work...


Said it for years but an evening with Rob and Phil discussing BTS of footballing world would be a great event (providing its common knowledge in industry).




I wasn't aware that Rob Esteva and Phil Parkinson were experts on South Korean boy bands.

Should we be worried you know the name of a South Korean boy band? :D



You mean to tell me that The Retrobeats don't cover any of their songs, complete with the accompanying dance routines..?

Just to add to that, even in 1979-80, when we won the inaugural Alliance Premier League, Mossley won 5-1 at Moss Lane in the Trophy.
Their form suddenly collapsed when, after several years of finishing 1st or 2nd, they were 22nd in 1983-84, and have never been the same since.
Did the supporters' coach get its windows put in at Mossley once?



I certainly don't recall the natives at Seel Park being overly hospitable when we lost that NPL Cup Semi-Final Second Leg tie there in April 1979.

That Mossley forward line of Ian Smith, Eamonn O'Keefe, Leo Skeete, Dave Moore and Vinny Garmory was outstanding.

Whether we've gone full-time or not, Haughton will still be well out of our financial reach. He's probably the best player in the NLN - and the highest paid too.

I expect Kirby to be here next season.

Has he played a competitive match since suffering that horrendous injury at Wealdstone?

The game certainly had a bit of a whiff of pre-season about it in the first half, and we didn't convert our dominance in the second half. A draw certainly would have been a fair result.

If some of the peripheral players were on trial, then I don't think Dinanga came through at all - whereas Pringle looked lively, and Cooper didn't really do much wrong.

Mooney looked so bloody dangerous without ever really looking like actually putting the ball in the net.


I hope that Dinanga won't be with us next season. I was surprised to see his name.




I've been told that when we paid a transfer fee for him, he was signed on a two-year contract.

Can anyone confirm this, as I am unable to locate any confirmation in the press coverage that greeted his arrival at Alty?

I have to say that I am praying that Dartford want to sign him during the summer.

And Bangor .


Who's season seems to have been expunged!

Anyone any idea what has happened to them?




The curse of Stephen Vaughan Sr. struck again:

It's striking for me that there hasn't been a standout worldie goal like Connor's last minute belter at Sutton for example.



I still can't believe how Hampson's piledriver didn't win last season's award.

I am very surprised we haven't posted on the website by now.

As Bath Alty says, key news like this needs to be distributed across all of the club's media channels, not just the most convenient ones.

Having been involved in the set-up previously I do not suspect that the website has been purposefully overlooked, rather, there may be some misalignment between volunteers somewhere.

It doesn't need an essay, just a quick release to cover the news that can be followed up by a tribute article or two.

Nail hit firmly on head.

Who actually oversees what appears on the club's official website these days?

My understanding is that it is a collaborative approach with several volunteers involved. From the outside looking in it appears that our media setup may be in a bit of a transitional period and there are a few teething problems. I do hope that we don't end up with a 'too many cooks' scenario.

I want it to be clear that I mean no criticism of anyone who volunteers to maintain our generally superb output. I did reach out to a member of the board to offer my support and I am sure if they feel it is needed in the short term, that they know where I am.

Is Ed Painter a volunteer?
Not sure, but he's leaving at the end of the season.

That's correct. Ed volunteered for social media management experience over the course of this season, resuming those responsibilities from myself last summer. I believe he has decided to step away at the end of the season, and I do not know what the club's plans are to fill that vacancy.


Many thanks for that enlightenment.

Perhaps our media operations will fall under the remit of our impending new CEO?

Gould was more New Mills than New Zealand. Should have stopped the goal, and made two real howlers later that he got away with. With TT going, I hope we've got a decent replacement lined up.



Brief highlights here (watch Densmore's reactions both to the goal and Gould's late indiscretion!):
