I'm not looking forward to this game. They will be prepared to throw the kitchen sink at us since the memory of their drubbing at Moss Lane is still fresh.

I think we'll lose a bad-tempered clash 2-0. I'm worried about red cards for retaliation, and would start Merrie ahead of Harrop. I might even consider resting Hulme.

If we DO have a straight red card, the victim would miss Hednesford and the first two games of next season. The thinness of our squad is somewhat worrying.

We'll beat Grantham, and seal it at home against Marine.

Official news will confirm but itís safe to say heís done for the season. This is bad. Hampson back Thursday is a god send.

ADDED: Itís his hamstring, thatís confirmed. Needs to be assessed but first signs are itís a tear. f**ks sake.

So Tom Hannigan is now our only fit centre half. Some sort of irony there.
Alas, Sam Heathcote is also fit.......

Hoping Hannigan is available.

Happily take a draw and see what gives elsewhere.

 Buxton 1-1 Alty. Hulme.

Can't make it tonight. Good look  and safe journey to all.


Saturday's substitution was purely tactical at 4-0 up. It was just to give him a rest before this tough week. Fit and well.

Good news - thanks for that !

Walking football ??

Isn't that what Mourinho churns out at OT
Almost. Change the "l" to an "n" and you've about got it Ray.

Don't like betting on Alty as a general rule, but also had a little tickle at 7/1 (but only 10 yoyos each way)
I refrained and now I wish I hadn't  Sad

I've just chipped in a fiver.....we COULD actually see whether we could have a permanent plaque to Kenny if funds allow !

Grantham entertain Warrington on Tuesday week. They can't both win.

But hopefully it won't matter by then.

I'd guess it's our first league visit since we were in the Cheshire League 50 years ago, though we did go there in the Trophy late 70's.

The lads won't need motivating, but they took points off us at Moss Lane (only home game I missed) and are decent on their day (9th in the league). They've only lost 2 of their last 10, including a win over Ashton.

I take us to win 2-1 (Harrop, Hulme). Hardy to make sure all scorers begin with H !

If we turn out in the numbers we should, the gate should top 400.

The crowd yesterday was fine and despite agreeing that its a terrible position we are in I for one will be enjoying the celebrations if we manage to do it.  Balls to "well we shouldnt have been there", we are and we've done a bloody great job getting out of it.  Well done all

880 is not fine. Given how good the weather was, low admission prices etc. I was expecting at least 1000. At a guess I'm pretty sure our average crowd this season is preventing the club to break even on a week to week basis.  



As many will tell you, there were far more than 880 in attendance yesterday. I donít want to open a can of worms but it looked over 1,000 to us.

Around 1000 was mooted by the guys I stand with, but I said more like 900. I await  a PROPER figure against Hednesford, aided by the Beer Festival and hopefully the trophy presentation.

Whilst taking nothing away from the manner in which we've gone about kick starting our revival, I'm certainly not "crowing" about winning this league  (which we will do) since that was our minimum target this season.

I'll start beating my drum if we continue to progress in a similar manner in National North.

No more rain forecast for this afternoon, and tomorrow should be decent. Can't see it being off this time.
12  General Category / Altrincham FC First Team / Re: Barwell : Match Thread on: April 12, 2018, 10:12:17 PM
Win this one, and Buxton......and we can clinch the championship at Shaw Lane with a third straight win. That would feel very apt !
13  General Category / Altrincham FC First Team / Re: Thursday Night Games on: April 12, 2018, 09:46:16 PM
Three wins from the last six games and we're in.
14  General Category / Altrincham FC First Team / Re: Squad and staff contribution on: April 12, 2018, 07:53:24 PM
If anybody doubted the commitment of this squad, it's fully evident here. Well done guys !

Stourbridge v Stafford OFF 
Good job we were there on Monday, not tonight.
