I note the death of the former Alty assistant manager Terry Murphy, a man whom older supporters will recall for his connections with Runcorn, Vics and Witton Albion respectively:

The then Alty manager John Williams appointed Murphy as his assistant for the start of the 1987/88 GM Vauxhall Conference season, reuniting a partnership that had enjoyed significant success at Runcorn.

However, they were dismissed after merely 10 games of the campaign (two wins; three draws and five defeats), whereupon Chairman Gerry Berman and his board of directors duly unveiled one Tommy Docherty Esq. as the Robins' new manager.
