73-4 might be a good place to look.

I've found an earlier one. Not a Saturday but still:

Not sure why it was a midday kick-off - police advice presumably?

Here's an esoteric one for the fellow anoraks who lurk on this forum...

Would 12:30pm represent the earliest ever kick-off time for an Alty home fixture on a Saturday?

What time did winter Saturday games kick off in the pre-floodlights era?



2:30pm generally, although I have also seen home programmes that denote a 2:15pm kick-off.

I'm surprised at that. That would mean matches ending about 4pm when it would be dark in December.

I have seen elsewhere that, before the use of floodlights, games did kick off surprisingly late in winter.

The archive section of John Laidlar's website mentions (look under Kick-offs in the link) that morning kick-offs were not unusual, when two games were played in a day, but, unfortunately, does not give match details or times. I do remember reading about a day at the end of a season when we did play two games in a day, and I think some players played in both; this would have been in the Manchester League days.

Guess there may have been a midday ko for TV at some point in our history... i think the Alty v Barnet 4-1 in1991 was 1pm ko for TV, but trying to recall any game earlier than 12:30...



That FA Cup tie against Darlington in December 2001 was also a 1:00pm kick-off.
