In the mid 70s the team used to come out to a version of the Match of the day theme - and the record skipped! I heard it so many times I half expect to hear the said skip whenever the programme starts even now.

Does anyone remember Alty's pre match DJ Neil Davies?




Yes, I remember him. He was definitely the DJ/match announcer during the 1977/78 and 1978/79 seasons. He even had his own namecheck jingles.

Didn't he used to live near to Ringway Golf Club?

I distinctly remember the brass band music of the mid 70's playing over the tannoy - specifically I can remember them playing - Those were the days my friend - a 1968 hit by Mary Hopkin - played by a brass band. Those were the very early days of me supporting the club. I also remember the grass banks behind the goal at the Chequers end, and where the CSH is now.

In fairness most of the music played in the early days was gash, but the football wasn't.

I'd have had Anarchy for the Alty
