Hope we can beat Stockport this Sat. Will give the lads confidence for the two games against them in the league

I was talking to one of the groundsman before the game and he was saying the pitch down the right towards the golf road end could do with about a foot depth of clay soil being removed from that area. He also said in fairness to MUFC they do carry out quite a bit of work on the pitch

Another fantastic result against a very good Telford team, in difficult underfoot conditions.
Fair play to everybody concerned incl the match officials who did there utmost to get the game on.
Another great effort by our defence .
The lad on loan from Fylde really did impress in his cameo roll when he came on as a late sub.

One last thing.. I think we should set up a fund to get JJ some armbands for when he is attacking down the right wing towards the Golf road end..😉

Iím enjoying our success on the pitch as much as anyone, but it probably goes a bit deeper than that for some in terms of attending home games. Itís worth remembering that (despite undeniable improvements being made in the boardroom), if the current chairman had his way we would probably now be sitting 10th in the EvoStik League, with Matt Doughty telling everyone on Twitter how well vb TVwe had done in a draw away at Mikcleover Sports and Ian Foden trying to convince everyone that we canít compete with the likes of South Shields. Fortunately it didnít turn out that way and Ďthatí (5 hour) board meeting was one of the most important weíve had in years.

On the crowd today, maybe we deserve more but it wasnít dreadful. The weather was awful and itís the run up to Xmas. And I think the new fanbase is more affected by United/City playing on a Saturday than we used to be, but  also it probably didnít help that Telford brought about 15. Granted, they may have dispersed around the ground a bit by the time I came in, but it looked an appalling following for what should have been a big game for them.


Living not far from Telford I would have thought more of the fans would have enjoyed taking the opportunity to get away for a few hours  Wink

Will be leaving in 45 mins. Possibly followed by Telford fans.   Angry

I'm not having a dig at the ground staff but, this arrangement with MUFC seems to only benefit them.
Due to them playing on it midweek scuppered the opportunity for us to cover the surface.

I have nothing but admiration for the generous folk who donated to purchase the said covers, I'm just a bit surprised that a club of the size of MUFC didn't give us them at a vastly reduced rate (perhaps they did).



My son represented Man Utd at Anfield in a junior Premier League tournament a few years ago. All the other clubs gave their junior teams full kits and kit bags etc. Man Utd gave them a three year old away top(no shorts and socks) and made them return it after the tournament so it doesn't surprise me that they do us no favours!

Cheers . Nuff said.

Telford are more often than not, a big physical team and I expect them to be just that on Saturday.
We will need to match their physicality without picking up cautions but still play our free flowing football.
I think it may well be one of our hardest games to date,.

Having said that I live just 12 miles from Telford and would love to beat them.

Alty 2 - 1 Telford
Not sure they will bring many fans.
Att 856 hoping not to many fans are dragged away Xmas shopping

Maybe if the chairman did the right thing those fans would return.........
What, both of them?

A bit flippant  there fella.

The pitch is like a churned up cow field. What can be learned by that game baffles me!!!!!!!!!!!! SBL

I'm assuming you know the Alsager pitch. I thought you were referring to our pitch until I noticed it's an away game.

Good luck lad. Stay fit and healthy

Sadly didn't make it today.  Haven't lost in the league since Kiddy away back in September.

The way we play and the confidence the whole team/management have is superb.

My old Mantra is still there "We  Fear Nobody"

Well done lads, Telford up next. Local to me, would love to turn them over

Cmon Alty

Hard fought win
Alty 2-1 Brackley
I wonder if the bloke dressed like Mr T will be there.
