I've always thought the pith at Edgeley Park is quite a bit bigger than ours

104x64m  (all subject to my measuring tolerance on google maps ! )

just watched mark bower's post match interview on youtube. he refers to altrincham's big pitch when talking about how we like to move it around. is it really that much bigger than amyone else's?

From a 2010 ground grading report done :-

The playing area measures at 68.6m x 103m which is within the required standard.

A rudimentary measure using google maps puts their pitch at 100m x 63.8m

It's the long awaited return of Altrincham legends Anthony Griffith and Billy Hasler-Cregg, too.

Is that the guy who ripped us off and could never play football again !

Should make a few quid out of gate receipt split??

After County take their expenses out for running the game which is probably massive !

Thanks Mark.

I'm finding this embargo on releasing footage a bit frustrating. 

Last season the way Mark was getting goals online pretty much the same day helped to continue the buzz from the game, and the full highlights followed within the next 24 hours really kept the interest.

Now, I can barely recall who we played last!

Would the embargo still apply if we had a private members only subscription video service ?

What a complete load of bollocks by Waterson.  Roll Eyes Roll Eyes Roll Eyes

It will never happen in our present state.

What a ridiculous post.

I was curious how far the kids will make me drive this season, so I messed about and plotted the league away games on a google map - I've shared it if anyone wants to take a look.

How are the players getting there - are they on the Ferry out of Liverpool or flying earlier ?

If anyone needs Car Parking in Liverpool for the ferry,

I've just booked at https://uk.secure-a-spot.com/home/carparksearch  in Capital Parking Liverpool - I used to have contract parking there when I worked in the centre for a while so I'm happy its as secure as it could be.

Only cost 5.45 for the whole weekend, but note you need to book sat and sun as 2 full days 0:15 - 23:45, using add day, and then give them a call to merge the booking together as you won't be exiting and reentering sat/sun.

Its pretty close to the ferry terminals.

Hope that helps someone.

A few points:

1) I looked at it from the point of view of a new potential supporter or visitor. Can they find the basic information they need quickly i.e. through one obvious link/click:
- when are the matches?
- how much is it?
- where is it?
- how do I get there?
- what are the facilities?


I agree with this - when I've looked at other away websites - I get frustrated trying to find what I want to know, occasionally on a mobile device.  It would be good to have a very obvious "Visiting Fan" link very prominent with a 1 page with everything you suggest.

Will we be on board for the full duration of the final, though? Can't think of anything worse than getting off in Liverpool and having to rush to find somewhere.

It looks fairly consistent at 2h 45mins,

So depart 3pm, kick off 4pm, arrive 5:45 when I guess its pretty much the end of normal time? 

The return sailing is 7pm so I dont suppose they hang around !

I've emailed to check and had the following back :-

"Thank you for your email,

They do have TVs on board and as far as we are aware they will be showing the football in the bar area. This will be subject to the aerial signal during the crossing.
