I became Alty the day I patted Jack Swindells on the back after his 5 goals vs Scarborough in the FA Cup. (My first game) If that had been Dennis Fidler at Macc the result woulk have been similar and I'd have been a committed Silkman. We have to remember and respect our heritage AND that of other fans.

Confession: I was born in Macclesfield and moved to Timperley where my family was from when I was a baby.... So I grew up Alty through and through!

Things could have been so different and I shudder at the thought...

I was born and brought up in North Manchester and I never for a moment thought of supporting M*cc. I was drawn to Alty and have stayed loyal for roughly the same as Bogman.

It's 50 years next year! Can't believe it.

On the way home from the 0-3 drubbing and relegation at Rushden we still sang, passed a Macc bus from Kettering after winning the conference half full of dead people (well it appeared that way !) not singing, typical. Oh and Dennis sat next to me in the stadium so I had every right to be miffed that day  :)
