The Tranmere game would normally involve them in sending a reserve/youth team along. We've always enjoyed a good relationship with them, right back to the days in the 50's when we played their reserve team in the Cheshire County League.

Is there any chance that, their being aware of our intentions to make it a testimonial to a much loved member of the family that is Altrincham FC, they could be persuaded to send their strongest team on this occasion ? If we could publicise that this would be happening, it would increase the attendance even further.

We all want to see Moss Lane packed out for this one, and provide an atmosphere that will leave Mad Dog in no doubt about the love and respect every one of us has for him.

I note that we are due to play a Manchester City XI the Saturday before the Trannmere game, in the normal scheme of things you'd assume this would get a much bigger gate than a game against Trannmere. I'm sure this has been discussed in the club already but any thought given to switching Marks game to the City match?

Its a good idea, and ive been debating whether to make one - The important thing is everybody invited their entire contact list, and then ask them to "click attend" even if theyre not because that way it appears in more news feeds = more free publicity.

I think the FB posters as profile pictures worked well in the past,

I'll try and pull one together about the game itself then when the club annouce details about the post-match event another one can be made



its been on the back of both local papers  Grin

Good point. A colleague of mine is very pally with the Tranmere manager. I'll certainly have a word and see if some influence can be exerted. If so, rest assured it will get maximum publicity.

I know that not everyone want their situations published for the whole world to see, but I wonder if the likes of local bbc and Granada are being asked to advertise the game on 23rd July. This is probably the most important game for a long time and the more people we get the better.

I think some caution needs to be exercised as I read somewhere that Mark was trying to conceal the situation from his son for the time being.

Although I never saw Mark play, I have heard what a top guy he is. I'll be there for the Tranmere game.

Pleased to read on the Club site this morning that Tranmere will indeed bring their full first team, and are publicising too. This is going to be a very special day for one hell of a special guy.

I'm absolutely gutted to hear this awful news! Mark Maddox is a great guy and  I am honoured to be a friend of his! Mark is a big character and when I first met him in 2004 he was a towering figure! Not forgetting I was only 18! I remember thinking about him then, I don't want to get on the wrong side of him! But once I got to know him he was sound, as he and the other scousers would say! I soon started to looked up to him because he was a true professional on and off the pitch! A leaf out of his book would not do me any harm!! I know that at alty he is a true legend and rightly so! He wore his heart on his sleeve and he would give everything on the pitch come 3 o'clock Saturday! He was a great captain to play for always encouraging but also telling you when you needed to be told!!
I can not say enough about him and I will be there with my missus after the game against Tranmere! I would live to be there for the match but I have a pre season game my self.

See you all there and keys make it a really good turn out cause we all know he is Mr Altrincham!!

Mark is a great guy and fully deserves all the positive things being said, Alty fans adore him. I remember the day Kingy brought him in (from a liverpool amatuer side if I recall) and every day since then he has earned the praise he gets, as a player and as a man. I sincerely hope that you will keep fighting just as much now for you and your family as you did for Alty. Mark,....you are SOUND.
