In next season's Cheshire Senior Cup, we should field our Walking Football team instead, managed by Neil Tolson.

Mind you, John Laidlar might encounter problems when attempting to post match updates whilst simultaneously playing.....




"Altrincham FC recently started a walking football session in the Community Sports Hall and, after just a handful of sessions, optimistically entered themselves into the FA People's Cup competition for thier first taste of compettive football. Given the lack of practice, the absence of several more players from the squad and the fact that they had never played the outdoor version of the game before, expectations were not too high. And so it proved as the team lost all three of its group-stage matches to more experienced teams.

But with this experience behind them, the team is aiming for big improvements during 2016!"

I still fondly recall Alan Marks (front left) flattening a defender playing for Independent Insurance against Bechers about 35 years ago. Said defender's rather fearsome looking missus shouted "Watch that dirty grey-haired old bastard ref !"

Al came off at half time and said to me "I don't mind dirty, grey-haired, or even bastard - but I object to old !"

Advertised on the club site. I fancied a go but can't do 9am on Wednesdays. Get yourself down there if you fancy it.

 Is there a minimum age to join the team and does the ref check bus passes before kick off (when I did Youth footy several years ago ref checked the lads I D cards to make sure they were not over age) 

Just joking - good luck to the team in the future
