Disney started in centre mid yesterday and scored on his debut. Other former players in the Welsh Prem include Andy Owens at Connah's Quay, Craig Hobson at Aberystwyth, Andrai Jones also at Bala and Wes Baynes at Llandudno. Yeah, it's not a great league!

I guess we can't technically loan a player who isn't on a contract with us. He's been allowed to go to Witton as they were in a right pickle, I'd imagine we have the ability to bring him back after a month if needed.
I remember we did something like this some years ago when we "released" a player (Ged Kielty, but I might be wrong?) to Trafford, with a "gentlemens' agreement" with a club we trusted, that he would return four weeks or whatever later. At that time, I think there was a limit to the number of loanees in a match and over a season, so he didn't count towards that.
If he is non-contract, there is nothing to stop him staying at Witton, just as there would be nothing stopping them from asking for notice to approach him if he was warming our bench. Anyway, I liked him and good luck to Joel whatever happens.


These deals are nothing new. Omotola, Walsh and is are all currently subject to similar arrangement.

Thought he was for it after not appearing in the squad on Saturday. Whatever anyone had to say about him I really enjoyed watching him. Best of luck Joel!

Personally, I was confused by the bit where he talks about Harrop having been at MK Dons. He never played for them!

If he can get fit, Omotola will be a real asset. It won't hurt to have a decent striking option on the bench. Against some of the tougher defenses we've been lacking a plan B

How did Callum Jones do?

We sat in the small stand out of the rain and wind, that was more than half full of Alty supporters. I reckon we had at least half the crowd yesterday but were in 3 main pockets because of the awful conditions.

I felt as most, we lacked a plan B and PP was happy with a point, whereas with a bit more tactical changes we could have pushed more for 3 points. I was bemused not to see Dens on at one point in either  fb positions, also why not Peers? No Miller either on the bench.

I thought the substitution of Walsh was bizarre as not sure of his pedigree and where he came from. surely more established players should have been coming on?

Not sure why he is now up North but he came through Bournemouth's youth system and has played at several Southern Non League sides such as Salisbury,Welling and Aylesbury.

Last club also appears to have been New Orleans Jesters of the National Premier Soccer League (USA 4th tier). Hulme also played for them at one point

Agree with the line up but we're not going to change formation.

Cup game on Tuesday first.

Hoping to seeing a much changed team

Exactly. Play the youth team.

We do have a reserve team you know. Also, no reason Amis, Deasey, Jones, Harrop, Miller and Omotola (if he's still at the club) shouldn't be getting some matched fitness so they're ready to provide cover.

Job done today.

Back 4 were superb, don't want to see any change at all.

Big 2 games coming up
Only one maybe, it would be Short for Densmore but I would still go Densmore and Short as full backs until Disney comes back.

You really don't like Bembo-Leta do you?!

Athlete - yes, strength - yes, speed when he beaks a sweat - yes. Defensive positioning - no, passing - average, fouling - yes, man marking - no. I can't make my mind up completely and he will get away with his bad attributes in this league but he would mess up often in the league above!

I get what you're saying to a degree. I think he has bags of skill and is obviously very good athletically but he never seems to move above a trot. To be fair to him he practically never lost the ball yesterday and he made all the tackles required of him. Maybe he'd look a bit more urgent if he was actually under any sort of pressure.

Same starting 11 with the exception of Richman for Sheridan.


Richman did start instead of Sheridan in Tuesday...

see hancock's goal was on 32 minutes,is that hancocks half hour?

Right, I think the admins need to make referencing Hancock's Half Hour a bannable offence as of now. This has gone far enough

Good for him playing well and I'm happy for him to continue to prove me wrong with more good performances
14  General Category / Altrincham FC First Team / Re: Farsley Celtic on: September 19, 2017, 10:13:44 PM
Well done all, cracking result
15  General Category / Altrincham FC First Team / Re: Nantwich Town on: September 19, 2017, 08:38:29 AM
I think so yes...he's very isolated i think and would be better alongside another decent forward..

Whilst that's true, he's also done absolutely nothing to show any particular ability IMO. For those who hold a different opinion, I'm interested to know what people see as his primary attributes?
