Seem to be taking their sweet time, especially when Cleethorpes and Halesowen have received their punishments.

I suspect that the league is waiting for the appeal period to expire before making an announcement.

If the appeal period is 14 days then we will probably hear something from the middle of the week onwards.

How about a spot of Buzzcocks?

Top tune! I wonder what happened to my Spiral Scratch EP? Howard Devoto on vocals? Flynny - how about some more Magazine on RR?

Anything in particular, sir?
49  General Category / Altrincham FC First Team / Re: Winsford United v WarringtonTown : Cheshire F.A. Statement on: February 12, 2018, 07:12:09 PM
There is now a statement on the Warrington website from their chairman which says, among other things, that the Winsford v Warrington game will now be at Warrington on Monday 26th Feb. Presumably the Cheshire FA will make some kind of further statement and we might actually have someone to play before the moon turns into green cheese. I suppose the week beginning March 5th is most likely at this point. It all helps to make the Cheshire Senior Cup a laughing stock, I fear, in case it wasn't one already ...
If we suffer any more postponements, we'll be dangerously close to having at least one week where we play three times. There are 22 Tuesday/Saturday  dates left until the end of the season, and we have 17 league games, and this CSC  tie to play.
Of those 18 games, 14 are "firmly" scheduled. We still have to arrange this one, plus Mickleover at home, and visits to Buxton and Stourbridge. March 10th is the only blank Saturday but only Buxton have a fixture that day.
Unfortunately the same logic states that we can't really afford to win the CSC game, as the additional fixtures it could entail will come back to bite us.
According to the Evo-Stik League website there are 9 Evo-Stik Premier games on March 10th, with the following not yet scheduled to play:-
Altrincham, Mickleover Sports, Coalville Town, Stafford Rangers, Rushall Olympic, Whitby Town
We have already played Coalville Town, Stafford Rangers & Whitby Town twice, therefore the likeliest opponents on that date would appear to be Mickleover Sports at home, unless the Rushall Olympic away game was brought forward from Easter Saturday, which I guess is unlikely but possible.
As I understand it, March 10th was designated as the day for League Cup semi-finals. Mickleover are still in that competition - they are due to play Witton a week tomorrow (20th) - so maybe any rejigging of fixtures involving our game with them would have to await the outcome of that match?
My understanding was that March 10th was originally designated as a day for Integro League Cup Quarter Finals, however I suspect that the Evo-Stik League have now abandoned that idea or will do shortly.
There are still 3 Second Round ties to be played, currently scheduled for next week.
Third Round ties are currently scheduled between February 20th & March 6th. This is the last 16 stage, so even if all Third Round ties were completed by then, which is very unlikely, it would be ludicrous to play the Quarter Finals on the following Saturday, as it would undoubtedly leave some clubs without a game & other clubs involved in a game in a competition that they would prefer not to be playing in on a Saturday.
The cynic in me says that the League has made ludicrous decisions before now, so sanity is not a given ...
Seriously, thanks for the clarification, Brian.

Thanks Mike.....the decision to leave this Saturday free in the original fixture list must go down as one of the oddest of the season.

Buxton F.C. have advised that there will be a pitch inspection at 10:00am tomorrow.

Temperatures in Buxton are forecast to drop to -2 degrees celsius overnight & there is a likelihood of rain from early tomorrow morning that is expected to continue for most of the day, therefore there is a potential threat to the match going ahead from both freezing & wet conditions.

60  General Category / Altrincham FC First Team / Re: Shaw Lane Potential Points Deduction on: February 07, 2018, 07:24:35 PM
Have just been told by a director of an Evo Stick team that Shaw Lane will incur a 10 point penalty.

No idea how true or how they have arrived at that .

If that is true, I will show my backside in the Vatican.

There is only one outcome here, surely, a 3 point deduction for Shaw Lane.
