Welcome mate, I remember your dad very well from booking coach tickets to aways, great to see the club connection remain. Keep on coming.

Hi to everyone on the forum.I've been an intermittent guest for some time,but now with almost reliable broadband,and chrome goggles I'm here in person.
Yes, I did used to drive one of those cars with a wheel missing,which gave rise to my name. My association with Alty goes back to the early days of the Red Robin Club, and Peter Swales' notorious tombola on a Saturday night, but I've lived away for many a year now, and so rely on the website and forum to keep in touch.

Things we have in common : I too was a motorist with a 25% shortfall in the wheel department (but the old shed got us to a few away games), and I well remember that tombola, not least because I won my original vinyl copy of the Beatles' "White Album" from that very source ! Happy days - welcome aboard mate.

Hello I'm Robert,

I've lived in South Manchester all my life and Altrincham FC is my nearest club.

I have been following Altrincham FC since last season and been listening to the commentary on RadioRobins.com since my brother Antony started.

My first ever match was the last game against Vauxhall Motors FC and I will be comming to many more hopefully.

Regards.

Welcome aboard Rob.

You've made a pretty good start by sponsoring Radio Robins and offering to be a steward.

Well done for taking some positive action...lets hope you get the bug and stay for a long time.

Dear Fellow Alty Supporters,

A few years ago, my mate, Ian, and I were bemoaning the state of premiership football.  So we decided to have a real footballing experience by watching our nearest club, Alty.  We watched the tail end of the 09-10 season and instantly became hooked.  We attended most home games last season with our two lads who have also become Alty fans despite the poor performance of the team overall last season.  I will never forget the look on my son's face when Eastbourne scored their fourth in the final game. 
This season, we have also been on the road with the Robins to Vauxhall Motors and Hyde.  I suppose this is one of the advantages of being in the BSN.  We are trying to convince as my people in Lymm to start supporting their local team and rediscover the real game of football rather than the sanitized experience of Premiership football.

I've never posted on this thread yet, better late than never.
Well I've been a City supporter all my life (and I still go to a few matches when Alty aren't playing!) and I started following Alty around February this year, at the end of last season. My first game was our 2-0 victory over Tamworth, which was a nice way to start my (hopefully) lifelong love of Alty. I don't live in Altrincham, but have many connections with the place such as going to school here and being round the general area nearly every day. I take the 370 bus to home games every Saturday and usually bring a mate or two who've never experienced the joy of this club! After 6 months of supporting Alty I'm already a season ticket holder and am looking forward to many happy years with the club!  Grin

Hello Altyfans
My first Alty match was against Leyton Orient in 79/80, as a lad I watched Alty with my mates quite a lot, I drifted away in about 1986. 4 years ago I saw the light and came back, I also brought my young lad along with me to watch his first match at Moss Lane, it was an instant hit, so much so we are both season ticket holders. Wherever we go on holiday he packs his Alty shirt and wears it with pride, Alty is in the blood.
All the best
