I'll never forget watching alty away at Slough in the early 90s and them beating a drum for 89 mins . Dum Dum Dum Dum Dum ... Slough .....repeat . We scored in the 89th min . They stopped 😂 so I sang it till the final whistle for them 😂😂


The legendary Darren Pybus in August 1996, perhaps?

A bizarre afternoon, indeed. Poor old Steve Roberts in goal:

When Alty drew 4-4 at Spennymoor Town in the National League North on Saturday, 11th August 2018, Adam Boyes was one of the goalscorers for the home side.

What happened regarding those stories that Macc were going to sign him?

The FA Cup tie referred to above was against Gateshead United, and it was in the 74-5 season in the second round.  We won 3-0 and got Everton in round 3.

Gateshead United are actually South Shields in disguise.  But not the current South Shields.  They folded in 76-77.

There are two outstanding teams in the East division of the NPL - Liversedge (unbeaten, 10 wins from 11 games) and Marske.

Marske lost 2-1 at Liversedge in the second game of the season. They've won all their other 8 games, scoring 23 goals and conceding just 1 !

Their main goal threat comes from former England C international Adam Boyes - I'm pretty sure he's played against us previously - perhaps Cult can enlighten us.



Adam Boyes was a member of the Guiseley team that lost 2-1 against Alty courtesy of Greg Wilkinson's celebrated eleventh-hour winning goal at the Chequers End in the Skrill North Promotion Final played on Saturday, 10th May, 2014.

Regardless if Mooney and Kos were fit, I'd give Jackson and AJ a start.

I'd also consider resting Moult and trialling Furman and Pringle



On the fairly safe premise that a Liam Watson team will subject us to an aerial bombardment, I don't think that an afternoon at Haig Avenue constitutes the ideal occasion to be resting Jake Moult.

Apparently Connor Hampson is doing OK in goal, and it's 0-0 HT.

Don't know how bad the injuries are, but we need to consider recalling Gould and Sutton from their loans.



And put Ian Senior on emergency standby...?

Drench could find himself back in the starting XI at this rate.

Extremely odd to make an overall judgement on Brad Jackson based on his appearances as an emergency full back (where I personally think hes done ok). Hes played all of ten minutes for us in his natural position and was absolutely superb.


Exactly.

He was Colin Potts-esque when he came on against Maidenhead United.

Tom Peers features in glorious full colour in a photograph on the front cover of the Non League Paper.

One to cut out and frame. Indeed, I suspect that HashtagAlty has already got it hung up on a wall at his home...

Our second consecutive home attendance in excess of 2,000 was a real bonus. It all seems a long way from the days of Mickleover Sports.

That's exactly the sort of game that a decade or so ago we would have lost 1-0 in front of a crowd of circa 1,100.   

I echo the sentiments of some of the previous posters that the jury remains out on Dinanga. He was unncessarily petulant when substituted, too.

An impressive cameo comprising some good old-fashioned wing play by Jackson.

Pringle was by far the best player on the pitch in that first half, perhaps faded in the second but it's great to know we have players of similar quality ready to step in.

Where was Ryan Colclough, by the way?


I heard that he has tested positive for Covid-19.
