61  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.

Having just been for a walk with the dog it seems we’ve been lucky and the frost has stayed away. Just got to hope for a dry day now

That is a positive start to the day!

Reading this, it seems that the points deduction season has started & we can expect to hear fairly soon about Shaw Lane potentially losing points:-

65  General Category / Altrincham FC First Team / Altrincham v Mickleover Sports | MATCH POSTPONED on: February 03, 2018, 12:08:50 PM
Despite the best efforts of the club ground staff, today's game against Mickleover Sports has been postponed due to a waterlogged pitch.

A local referee has just inspected the pitch & deemed that there is too much water & too many puddles on it for it to be playable.

I remember him scoring the opening goal in that Radcliffe game, and being cheered by our support for it as if he were still a Robin. Tells you everything about the esteem in which he was rightly held.

I know we eventually won, but the rest of the memory has faded.

I remember him scoring a header at the Golf Road End. Radcliffe were 2-0 up & we turned it round to win 3-2.

1972/3 season
FA Cup 2nd Qualifying Round.

Alty 4 Goole 2, Swindells scored all four. Will look up the details & add them to this in a few minutes.
Details as promised - Saturday April 4th 1970, Northern Premier League, attendance 1066. It wasn't his last game, but Jack had just announced his retirement with effect from the end of the season - according to a subsequent programme he had secured a position with a leading American company in Trafford Park which obliged him to give up football (popular myth says that company was Kellogg's & the job may have involved nights, but I can't vouch for any of that!). At all events, by the following October he was back & played on till the end of the 1970-71 season, scoring in his last match v Matlock. I think I'm right in saying he then played a bit for Radcliffe Borough & scored twice for them in a Cup-tie here. Hope that clarifies!

Didn't he just score once for Radcliffe against us?

Having played against us for Barwell and Sutton Coldfield, he's signed for Rushall Olympic.

Can anyone think of a player who's played against us three times in the same season for different clubs ?

Two players, who not only played against us for three different clubs, but scored against us for three different clubs in the same season are:-

1990/91: Keith Scott.....who scored for Gateshead, Boston United & Wycombe Wanderers against us.
2014/15: Michael Gash...who scored for Kidderminster, Nuneaton & Barnet against us.

Wouldn't it have been six games against Fisher that season? Pretty sure the trophy tie was settled at the fourth time of asking. I think that was late 80s.



We played Fisher Athletic six times during the 1987/88 season, including four games in the FA Trophy.

We also played Macc on six occasions throughout the 1990/91 season (twice in the league; twice in the FA Cup and twice in the Cheshire Senior Cup).

 



Also, in 1974/5, we had 4 games against Runcorn in the FA Trophy, therefore, with the 2 NPL matches playing them at least 6 times. I can't remember if we played them in the CSC or North West Floodlit League that year, but if we did, that may be the highest number of games that we have played agisnt one team in a single season.


Beat you to it, Brian!

We didn't play against Runcorn in the NWFL back in 1974/75.



Nice work, sir.

I was half-tempted to go over to their Trophy game tonight, but it looks like the weather's going to be atrocious (again)...

What's their pitch generally like?  Is it likely to be on, given the weather we've had overnight?

When we played there in October, the forecast during the week was for a lot of rain in the days leading up to the match & I called their secretary on the Thursday night to find out the chances of the game taking place. He advised me that their pitch drained really well & that they hadn't had a match called off at Cantilever Park, due to waterlogging,for a long time.The pitch held up very well that day, which has to have been one of the wettest of last year, so there is probably every chance that the game will go ahead.
