Today's Altrincham FC Trivia Question
« on: February 18, 2021, 03:43:06 PM »



Inspired by our recent ill-fated FA Trophy tie against Havant & Waterlooville....


From 1970 onwards, name seven teams whose name contains an ampersand against whom Alty have played a competitive fixture.



Bonus points if you can also identify two teams whose name contains an ampersand against whom Alty have played a pre-season friendly fixture during the same period.


The winner will receive a prize comprising a signed photograph of Alty's 2019/20 'player of the season': Peter Crook.

I'll give it a go! (?) where I'm completely guessing.

For competitive, could it be...

Hayes & Yeading United
Dagenham & Redbridge
Rushden & Diamonds
Gravesend & Northfleet
Hampton & Richmond Borough (?)
Tooting & Mitcham (?)
Walton & Hersham (?)


For PSFs, West Didsbury & Chorlton and Bacup & Rossendale Borough (?)

Four correct answers:

Dagenham & Redbridge;

Rushden & Diamonds;

Hayes & Yeading.

Plus one of the two bonuses: West Didsbury & Chorlton.

Yes to Epsom & Ewell (FA Trophy 1982).

However, no to 'Leytonstone & Ilford', as their name was actually hyphenated when we played them in the FA Trophy back in 1981. There's punctuation pedantry for you.

Brian,

Not to my knowledge, I'm afraid.

Too much red wine...!

Wakefield & Emley




Well played, that man. 2002/03 Unibond League season.

That still leaves one team from a competitive fixture and one team from a pre-season friendly.
