Altrincham FC First Team / Collection for the Homeless at BPA match
« on: November 21, 2018, 11:02:25 PM »
From the Club's website - please pass on to friends and family, the more donations the better!

Alty backs clothing for Manchester's homeless appeal

We are appealing to our generous supporters to back stallholders at Altrincham Market in their campaign to collect coats and jackets to donate to Manchester’s growing homeless community by bringing donations to our upcoming FA Trophy match at The J.Davidson this Saturday 24th November against Bradford (Park Avenue).
Don Grant, Lesley Britton, Hannah Burns and Jacqui Evans are asking for donations of any spare warm clothing so that they can be passed on to Homeless Project Manchester.
There are estimated to be 500 long-term rough sleepers in Greater Manchester, with over 3,000 people homeless when taking into account those in temporary accommodation, couch-surfing, or in bed and breakfasts.
As well as coats and jackets you can also donate clean sleeping bags, blankets, warm winter clothes, thermal underwear, socks, vests, socks, boots, hold-all bags, and other cold-weather items.
All donations will be distributed to those who need them across Greater Manchester by the volunteer team at Homeless Project Manchester.

I think its a great step that the Club are advertising new volunteer positions and the part time commercial manager's role and hopefully new people will apply. Too much has already been said about the clique and the 'usual faces' so its nice that the Board have opened the doors for different people to get involved. Why this hast been done before, I can only put down to Bill Waterson. Well done Bill!

Lets hope for a bright future!

Altrincham FC First Team / Is it time to bring back SAFE?
« on: April 03, 2017, 06:21:07 PM »
Is there an appetite out there for a Supporters meeting to gather support against the direction the Board of the football club is heading?

The Rowley Out group have done sterling work in bringing the unhappiness to the Board's attention but we need to show them that there is a lot of anger and upset of what has happened and far more than 29 people. With Rowley showing no possibility of stepping down is now the time that we got organised as a group. We currently have no effective supporters group at a time when it is needed the most.

I welcome your thoughts.

This is a genuine question from a supporter of 25 years, what is your plan for the Club? You sacked Jim Harvey and replaced him with his inexperienced  assistant claiming he was the best man for the job. He had signed a few players that have resulted in 2 points. You launched a strategic review, which was urgent, the results of which have still not been revealed. Your Vice-Chairman, rated as the most effective, albeit slightly arrogant, of the Board, resigns with no explanation and tet you continue in your role, to strangle the life and and ambition out of the footballing side of the business. I believe that you don't understand the flack that you are receiving, that explains everything. Your time is up, just walk away and take Doughty and Heathcote with you. We want our ambitious Football Club back.

Why would a board who propose to have the best interests in the football club and by usual extension first team hold a strategic review and ask the question: "What is the purpose of Altrincham Football Club?"

Altrincham FC First Team / Harrogate to follow Stalybridge's model
« on: December 01, 2011, 11:55:05 PM »
Interestingly from John Laidlair's site, Harrogate are to go full-time, it looks like its not only DAB that has been keeping a keen eye on Stalybridge.

The Harrogate Advertiser reports that "Harrogate Town will go full-time next season according to boss Simon Weaver as he plots a long-term strategy to move them into the Football Conference. The Wetherby Roaders will join other Blue Square North clubs who have decided to make the giant leap.
Using the example of Stalybridge, who have been impressive this season, Weaver said the decision was taking [?taken] and will start as of next season. 'We’re looking forward to it', he said. 'Other clubs have tried it, like Stalybridge. We’ve looked at their model and it seems to work'”.

The monthly Blue Square Bet leagues' Manager of the Month awards include:

Blue Square Bet North GARY LOWE from Hyde FC
As for Players of the Month...

Blue Square Bet North DANNY ROWE from Droylsden. The citation reads "Rowe found the net an incredible seven times during the month and also contributed a number of assists for the Bloods".

Altrincham FC First Team / The Future
« on: May 02, 2011, 08:50:40 PM »
To take a line from one of Hughesy's post the planning for next season should start now. The management situation should be sorted out asap and then a full assessment of the playing squad and recruitment put into place ready to start pre-season with a bang. But also the close season sees an opportunity to completely rebrand the club. Since the start of last seson we have lost a talismanic Chairman, a manager that love him or hate him was a big influence at the club and a main club sponsor in Go Goodwins. if Kenny does go then we start with a new chairman in Grahame Rowley, a new management team and an almost new playing squad as well as a new club sponsor. The PR machine should be put into overdrive that the club is going to have a real go at returning back to the Blue Square Premier at the first attempt and that it wants the community to be a part of it. The club has criticised the town and the local community in the past for not supporting its football club, although when the town has shown an interest and turned out in numbers often the playing squad havent turned it on as was evident on Saturday. However I believe that the club should be doing more for the local community and show the town what the club can do for it rather than the other way round. Recently the board appealed for the supporters to help financially in any way they could and provided a long list of ways that we could help and by all accounts they were disappointed with the response they got. This may be in part because they were asking the same people to dig deep in their pockets that have been asked countless times over the last 16 years.

I was at a conference several weeks ago where Andy Walsh from FC United was one of the keynote speakers and he was detailing how FC United operates and how the potential new ground will be financed. He explained that they have a community programme that works with a wide variety of community groups and has a turnover of £500,000 per annum. The new ground will be financed parly by the sale of community shares through a community share scheme - in 5 months they raised £1.3 million and 25% of investors were not MUFC or FC United fans, and the majority had no real interest in football. They also received £20,000 from an ethical investor who had an interest in the community but no interest in the football club.

Now I am not saying that we can compete with FC United, but I asked Andy Walsh whether he felt that FC United were an extreme example but his point was that no matter how big or small you were that you will get back any investment that you put into the community.

Community involvement isnt difficult and it isnt costly what it does take is hardwork, manpower and the patience to see it through. This isnt a criticism at the board and the small group of volunteers just my viewpoints on where we should be looking to head.  

Any thoughts.
