Re. Stuart Coburn v Runcorn, my recollection was that it was a freekick from our own half which bounced and aided by the wind looped over their keeper into the net. My other recollection of this game was that Stuart also saved a penalty!?

Yes he scored and saved a pen that day!

Sending us to the top of the league, if I recall. It was a freak goal, also aided by the extraordinary slope on the pitch.

I'm sure Paul 'Co-Co' Robertson scored an crucial equaliser vs Hyde in the NPL championship winning side in a 2-1 win over Hyde? Ricky 2 weeks Harris getting the last gasp
winner.



John,

Your recollection is confirmed by the following excerpt from the match report by Alan Johnson that appears in Grahame & Terry Rowley's publication: Altrincham Football Club: The Unibond Years:

Easter Saturday, 3rd April 1999

Unibond League Premier Division

Altrincham 2  Hyde United 1


"On 47 minutes Paul Ellender gave away a free kick just outside the box and a delightful chip from Richard Annan went over the wall and gave Stuart Coburn no chance.

Two minutes later, Alty won a corner (at the Chequers End) and Paul Robertson's kick beat the keeper and went through a mass of players straight into the net. 1-1."


I still recall Ricky Harris joyfully tucking away an Andy Lovelock cross for the dramatic 88th-minute winning goal in that game but I confess that Paul Robertson's earlier feat had evaporated from my own memory banks.

Stuart Terry definitely scored from a corner at the Golf Road end, but cannot remember who it was against, and I think the wind at the time helped.
