Altrincham FC First Team / This Weather
« on: February 08, 2021, 08:33:28 PM »
Many of you know that I live in SW London these days but the constant freezing temperatures and snow we have had recently have reminded me of a funny story, no doubt told previously.
It was New Year's Day in I'd say 1977 or 78. We always played Macc home and away over Christmas, it was before the APL started.

We were away on Boxing Day, there was a bit of trouble after on the way out with some fighting. Mostly handbags but punches were thrown. One of the Macc protagonists was a lad of about 16, wearing a long black leather coat.

I met up with my mate as usual in the Bridge pub about 1.30 for a couple. About 2.30 in walked the Macc team, the game was off, while we were in the pub it had put about 4" of snow down.
I left to get the train home to Dane Rd but the snow had stopped them running. As I left the station I bumped into Mr long leather coat. In that way football fans have with shared camaraderie I offered to help him get home to Macclesfield.

We got the 263 or 264 together up to the bottom of Dane Rd at which point I advised him he needed to change buses to get to Manchester. I thoughtfully put him on the 222 to Partington, he was so grateful I almost felt guilty as I walked home to my parent's centrally heated house in Sale just 5 mins up the road.

Absolutely true story, still proud of it to this day.

Altrincham FC First Team / Yankee

Anyone else had this letter today about the club not running the Yankee anymore? I thought it brought in a decent wedge, can't believe interest and promotion has failed like this.

Altrincham FC First Team / Halifax Walkers and the Pink Kit
« on: March 21, 2015, 09:57:01 PM »
So how successful was today as a fund raiser? Did the Fax walkers make it and still play a kickabout, how was the pink kit received by the fans.
A great gesture by both clubs, just wonder how it went. Sometimes it isn't just about the football.

Heard a rumour it has closed, anyone able to confirm? Permanent or for a refurb?

Altrincham FC First Team / Statto Required
« on: May 04, 2014, 02:47:57 PM »
Despite the euphoria around yesterday from which I am gradually coming down from, I need some help. A Dartford supporting mate and all round football and gig attending obsessive has been to a Kent League game yesterday which finished 2-8, apparently his fourth 10 goal game. I have trumped him with the Merthyr 9-2 and Nuneaton 7-4 but he has now challenged me to a highest score draw contest. I cannot even recall an Alty 3-3 never mind a 4-4 or 5-5. Anyone?

Former Stafford keeper who went on to bigger things, great keeper at our level and above.


Altrincham FC First Team / Pre Madonna

Sorry if I'm a fussy old bastard but I keep seeing this on here and it rankles. No one is regarded as being before the mother of Jesus, or perhaps being celebrated prior to a certain American pop singer's appearance.

It is Prima Donna, from the Latin, now used sarcastically as in you think you are special but you are not.


Altrincham FC First Team / France
« on: June 17, 2010, 09:26:54 PM »
Totally crap. Deserved to be beaten. Surely evidence that they should'nt be there at all.

The Irish would've made a better game of that. Ironic that Mexico play in green.

Altrincham FC First Team / African Cup of Nations
« on: January 31, 2010, 04:35:53 PM »
Anyone else watching the African final, will there be celebrations tonight in Gazelle Land?

Altrincham FC First Team / Tonight
« on: January 19, 2010, 11:56:46 PM »
I think all there would agree the ref had a shocker, deffo sending off for Seb Brown for the assualt on Senior, plus nothing done for the rugby tackle on him later. We gave AFCW too much space for a little while leading to the first two goals, no one would tackle for the second.

Second half, after we went two down we ran at them and scared the crap out of them too, we need to keep on with that and believe.

3-1 flattered them, we deserved better and who knows if they'd gone to 10 men as it should what would happen.

1400 gate! Yet again Wimbledon cheat on the split in a cup game, easily 1800+. Ask St Albans fans.

AND...for the doubters, yes I cheated and got the train there as time was tight, but I promise I walked home, 35 mins, not bad.

Altrincham FC First Team / Could it be on Tuesday?

frost free here overnight but still plenty of ice around.


Altrincham FC First Team / Kingston/Wimbledon weather report.
« on: January 05, 2010, 11:51:36 PM »
Snowing now, fairly steadily, first we've had here. I'd say about about an inch in the last hour or so. Still falling. Pretty cold, car says 0.5C.

Altrincham FC First Team / AFCW v Wrexham......OFF
« on: January 04, 2010, 06:14:36 PM »
Getting worse here, not looking great for Saturday. Forecast is -5 overnight on Friday.

club news
Wrexham off

Following a pitch inspection at 4.45 this afternoon and with the pitch frozen solid the referee took the decision there was no possibility of the match going ahead on Tuesday.

A new date will be announced in due course. Tickets will be valid for the rearranged game but a refund will be given on return of the ticket if fans are unable to make the new date once it is announced.

Altrincham FC First Team / I've Been to Rugby today.....
« on: December 27, 2009, 10:26:22 PM »
and it was rubbish, how can people watch such a stop /start go backwards game. Besides, when I played rugby at school we didn't have limitless subs, and as for the music after every score, its dreadful.
Twickenham is a nice stadium, good view etc, wasted on a stupid egg shaped game. No atmosphere as no one REALLY supports their team, its not life or death, just a jolly afternoon out. Hideous.
