This is John Laidlar's match report on his Alty Files website:


ALTRINCHAM FIRST XI 5-0 ALTRINCHAM FC YOUTH XI

A team comprising first teamers and trialists overcame an Altrincham FC youth team 5-0 in sweltering heat in Baguley on Saturday afternoon.

In 30+ degree temperatures, which necessitated several drinks breaks, John Johnston opened the scoring after 15 minutes. Debutant midfielder Conor Branson doubled the lead, seven minutes later, when he finished off a neat move, initiated by trialist Jamal Crawford and fed to the scorer by Connor Hampson.

Despite the first-team naturally dominating proceedings, the youth team worked hard and had several good moments themselves.

In the second half, after several changes of personnel, trialist Lewis Salmon made it 3-0. The fourth goal arrived midway through the half from another trialist, Zak Corbett. The scoring was completed by Max Harrop's well-taken goal as the game went into its final ten minutes.

First-teamers who took part for some or all of the game were Connor Hampson, who captained the team, Ben Harrison, John Johnston, Toby Mullarkey and Conor Branson, who all started the match, and Max Harrop who came on before the break. In the second half we also saw James Jones, Nathan Arnold (pictured, right) and Tony Thompson. Watching the game was Matt Chadwick.

The trialists included Hungarian goalkeeper Dan Gyollai (Stoke City), defender Zac Corbett (ex-Southport and FCUM), Lewis Salmon (Hanley Town, ex-Stafford Rangers and Leek Town), winger Jamal Crawford (ex-Chester FC) and Shakeel Jones (ex-Bolton Wanderers).

1. Dan Gyollai, 2. Harry Sheridan, 3. Conor Hampson (c), 15. Ben Harrison, 5, Zac Corbett, 6. Toby Mullarkey, 7. John Johnston, 8. Conor Branson, 9. TBC 10. Lewis Salmon, 11. Jamal Crawford. Subs: 4* Shakeel Jones, 10* Max Harrop, 14. Ethan Cartwright, 16. Nathan Arnold, 19. James Jones, 20. Tony Thompson.
