One addendum - FA Cup draws are, I believe, to be made on or about July 7th. I imagine that will cover Extra Prelim (to be played Aug 5th) & Prelim rounds & possibly 1QR, which would be full of ifs, buts & maybes at this point. I'm not sure about the Trophy draw date - it might possibly be the same as for the Cup.

The Trophy draw was announced on the equivalent day last season, covering the Preliminary and 1st Round Qualifying so I anticipate the same this season with July 7th being the day.

Incidentally,  I think I heard the draws are actually done earlier in the week, because of the sheer number of clubs involved perhaps,  but are only announced on the Friday. I am sure somebody,  no connection with Altrincham, leaked some accurate details in advance a year or two ago.

The state of that mug is totally compatible with the season it "celebrates".

Looking at the state of your mug/hands, I worry that dysentery could be a very real possibility before the big kick off.

I wish they'd hurry up as my fixture mug is generating a lot of concerns and needs renewing :-

No message really. It feels like we've got last dibs on the FA computer

A sensible question this........what happens to those fans who decide to boycott home games, if we are top of the league? Do you return on the basis the club has been turned around? What happens if we win promotion and are at the top of the league or near it? Do you return?

At what point do you return, is what i am asking if the club is truly turned around under GR?

The issue is not about results. If people wanted to watch a continually successful team, moss lane would not be the place to do it. The issue is not about Grahame Rowley as a person. The club has been administered like a family business for a long time. This has ultimately seen the club drop two divisions. The club needs clear hard nosed leadership, free from emotion. Not jobs divvied out to friends and decisions made to not upset people. I do not think this has happened on purpose, it is a culture that has grown. This has led to a devide within the club. This will not go away regardless of results until change is seen. For a recent example, the selected volunteers thank you dinner was a great gesture.But some people who have quietly got on with things unpaid and unthanked. In some cases for two decades and more, saw their invites lost in the post. The whole attitude and approach of the club needs to be overhauled. Hopefully new people coming in will see that happen and this attitude change. It is not a personal vendetta from what I understand, despite some of the abuse given out in frustration. This is about the good of the football club.Making it inclusive again, not just for the few that blow smoke up the chairmans behind and those that make a few quid out of it. And as a supporter, the current chairman should see that.
