Assuming the worse and Jones, Hannigan and Johnson are unavailable.

                       Thompson

Densmore Moult Harrison Hampson

                Richman.    Harrop

         Peers.  Poole.  Hancock.

                       Hulme

Big of a re-jig but should be strong enough to get a positive result

Buxton 0-1 Alty.  Poole

I like to see Walsh recalled aswel. Think he'd make more of an impact off the bench than Miller

Agree with this team if Jones and JJ remain injured.

It's over 50 years since I've seen us play at Buxton and can't say I've ever seen any signs for the ground when I've visited the town. Any tips on where the ground is from the town centre?

Buxton's website gives directions by road. As I recall it's less than 15 minutes on foot from the town centre but the last time I went to the Silverlands was nearly 30 years ago so I don't recall the route!

the ground is opposite the police station, so you could ask directions to the cop shop ?

No, there are no signs from the town centre so if you’re using the website directions, please note that the reference to “Safeway roundabout” should be “Morrison’s roundabout”. (That’s for car travellers. If you’re on foot you won’t go near that roundabout)

Brixton memories  for the older folk . any one else who was on the coach that got bricked ? do you remember the big big FA trophy game that was called off in the early 70's we had a special train booked but it snowed . imagine that these days a whole train just for the match !!! did we play telford in just about our first game against southern opposition ? or are these just the ramblings of an old man?

Gazelle. Your memory does not let you down. We beat Telford in a Replay to travel to Buxton. It was a huge win. They had been to Wembley twice in the trophy (it was only the fourth season or something like that). We had won one match. And we were 2-0 down at the Bucks Head too

I went by coach, but I believe there was a special train too. Game was postponed on the Saturday. Played the following midweek with over 2000 in attendance. I had been to Silverlands earlier that season for the FA Cup march - my first ever Alty game on the coach

Bill,

Prior to their encounter with Alty on Saturday, 2nd December 1972, Telford United’s record in the FA Trophy read as follows: played: 22; won: 16; drawn: four; lost: two; goals scored: 57 and goals conceded: 21.

All of which was in marked contrast to the Robins' underwhelming showing in the FA Trophy since its inception for the 1969/70 season: played: seven; won: two; drawn: two; lost: three; goals scored: 11 and goals conceded: 12.

Buxton were also our first ever opponents in the FA Trophy back in December 1969.

I was in the buxton vicinity pretty last night. No snow in the vicinity and 5 degrees. It was smashing it down though and the wind was wild.

The live webcam of market square is here, looks wet but nothing out of the ordinary

They’ll be keen to get it on for our ££. Can’t make it myself but I’d guess we’ll take 200-250 what with it being so easy on the trains.
