Good to see the usual names on the scoresheet early - pick up from where we left off

I've seen this on other sites under a 'match day' link - directions, where to park etc all on there with prices etc

It only seems to pop up once, not every time you visit the site so seems OK to me.

Should there be a link to the Alty Files somewhere from the new site, perhaps a history bit in the Club section?

Many thanks to our award winning webmeister...

Not a lot more to add other than my own thanks. You often don't notice how god something really is until it's gone. Happy retirement and any successor has big Alty shoes to fill.

i don't think he was quite that awesome!

Thanks John,  many years of great service and unparalleled commitment that has kept many of us in touch with the club and in my case is probably responsible for my support of the club as it was the arrival of the internet and the club website that enabled me to feel in touch with the club having left Altrincham aged 5. 

Your contribution to the club has been amazing and I cannot thank you enough.

just because we've gone a week without winning all the anger rises to the top again.....

Look at the press today on inter-generational wealth distribution - make the rich pensioner generation pay extra  not discounts.  If you paid 4 figures for your house or have a final salary pension you can cough up twenty to get in you lucky old......

Pretty much agree, keep all the players who played a decent number of games this year, release Sam (sorry) and Bailly-Jones and those who went out on loan.

Essential Targets:
Striker - a squad with one recognised striker is well short, would be happy to keep Jordan as first choice
Keeper - ditto keeper, but would rather genuine competition for TT or even new first choice - distribution and rush of blood moments are too frequent for me

Secondary targets:
CM replace Merrie in the squad - competing with Moult and Richman first choice is what we need, not necessarily a step up from these two, Harrop to come on from bench
Winger replace Miller in the squad - if he's first choice great but a front four of JH, JJ, JP, JH is pretty good so another impact sub alongside Peers would be enough
Striker - a squad really needs three strikers although how much game time the 3rd choice will get will be an issue playing one up top if Jordan stays fit again - could get away with knowing about some viable loan targets in case of injury

I'd rather spend the budget on the first two and then see what's left for the others.  Defence is probably OK - 3 good full backs and 3 good CB in the squad with additional cover from Si and Jake if we get injury hit again, feels OK.

In terms of personnel mentioned, Leather - yes (but not a priority area), Luca -No, Grantham keeper definitely, team of the season keeper and played well against us at theirs but suspect distance will be an issue

I like the first option, unfortunately the second one probably won't fly because a) you can only do an ISA as an individual and b) as a small business or charity banks really aren't interested in your savings.  I tried 8 big name banks & building soc and the best I could find for 70k was 0.2%pa (40 on your 20k and that's if it's all in from the start of the year and guaranteed not to touch t for the year!)

I've jut found an old PM on here from Jacqui giving me the news the cancer was back and she had been given "just months to live".....it was dated 27 December 2015.  She put up a hell of a fight.

Still incredibly sad that it was far far too soon.

Thanks - explains why I can't remember the other words!

Very sad news.  The first person I ever spoke to at a game (other than my dad) having only ever been an exile.  She was so keen to welcome everyone to her beloved Alty.

What a fight she put up to make it through to the title being won, so many months more than she was 'given' , so pleased she won that personal battle.

She will be missed by many in the game

Can anyone furnish me with the full words and tune?  I have just those 4 words going through my head and it's driving me potty!
15  General Category / Altrincham FC First Team / Re: Alty TV - Highlights Vs Grantham Town on: April 22, 2018, 11:15:07 PM
Just watched the highlights, terrific performance certainly 2nd half. Full marks to their keeper he kept it respectable. Great to see the celebrations with the fans there were some faces there I recognize who have sufferd over the last couple of years, good to see you enjoying it well deserved

Does that include the chap at 12:27 Grin
