I applaud the news of the club's long overdue decision to honour Noel White's unparalleled contribution to Altrincham FC in the form of that impending commemorative plaque in the CSH.

That's a splendid tribute from Bill Waterson on the club website, too.

However, I can't help but wonder that he warrants something far grander than that. After all, this is actual Moss Lane royalty that we we are talking about here!

So, how about naming one of the stands after our greatest ever chairman? If Stockport County can do that for Danny Bergara....

Alternatively, the Noel White Community Sports Hall has a nice ring to it.

I like that.

Perhaps we could pool together for a Golf Road End flag celebrating him and his contribution to the club's rich history? Took us less than 24hrs to raise the money for the Kenny Palin and Bernard Taylor flags.

Is there anything at the club named after Tony Sanders?

Good ideas Andrew and Cult.
I remember the days of the Noel White era.
