Altrincham FC Academy
aka Altrincham FC U19 A Red


24 May 2024


Altrincham FC's Academy side finished the 24-match 2023-24 season in seventh place in the thirteen-club National League's "NLFA North Division", aka "National League Under-19 Alliance North Division".

The champions were Guiseley who earned 57 points, with Farsley Celtic, Blyth Spartans, York City, Chester FC and Boston United also finishing above the Robins.

Altrincham amassed 30 points, winning nine times and losing twelve times in addition to three draws. They scored forty goals but conceded 61 times, leaving a negative goal difference of 21.

Their final four fixtures ended as follows...

  • 22/04/24 k.o. 14:00 Altrincham 2-2 Chesterfield DREW
  • 17/04/24 13:00 Guiseley 5-0 Altrincham LOST

20 March 2024


The NL Paper has a report on Altrincham's Academy side's 4-1 defeat at York on 13 March, which gave the Minstermen some revenge for their first-team's thrashing at the J. Davidson Stadium the previous day.

Ironically the York side is managed by Tim Ryan, who briefly played for Altrincham.

The hosts took the lead early in the game before Harrison Howells (right) levelled for the Robins.

But three more goals produced a 4-1 win for York.

The NLP adds that "defeat means the Robins stay winless on the road since November and boss Paul Fay rued his side switching off at key moments...

He said, 'Our keeper Louie [Fallon] had two saves to make in 90 minutes. However, spells of lack of concentration in the game gave four goals away.

Results have been erratic for this group. Today there were fourteen first- and second-years and, with a short turnaround before the reverse fixture on Fiday, it leaves limited time to correct basic errors.

'I am confident they will learn and consistency will come'".

Paul will have been pleased to see the boys draw the reverse fixture with York before securing a home win over AFC Fylde.

Since our last update, the Academy side's results in the National League U19 Alliance league and cup competitions have, indeed, been erratic with just six wins, four at home, in 16 matches.

Altrincham FC report on a National Youth League Cup tie which ended Morpeth Town 3 Altrincham 0.

Caden Gibson reports on this clas "between the Academy sides of Altrincham and Morpeth Town...

Alty started the sharper of the two sides... However, they were unable to make their superiority count, and the game remained level...

Morpeth began to grow into the game... The pressure was too much for Alty to withstand, and they soon found themselves 1-0 behind...

Altrincham’s domination of the game proved to be ineffective as Morpeth extended their lead... After the half-time break, Morpeth saw themselves go 3-0 up...

Squad on the day: Tyler Heyes, Will Knowles, Caden Gibson, Ethan Cosgrove, Jacob Hill, Mo Suwareh, Remi Raymond, Kian Gonzalez, Henry Shaw, Ollie Dixon, Vlad Shtyhlian, Ryan Knowles, Nathan Wood, Charley Jarrald".


Harry Douglas reports for Altrincham FC on Alty Academy's home defeat, 0-5 by Boston United in the National League Under-19 North Division.

"The Altrincham Academy were looking to bounce back from back-to-back defeats against Chester and Fylde...

It was an underwhelming start from the young Robins, as they fell behind very early into the game... It quickly got worse for the hosts, as some poor defending from a corner allowed Boston to double their lead...

With some attacking substitutions, the momentum seemed to be in the young Robins’ favour...

A terrible tackle brought Edson Cata down in the box for an Altrincham penalty... but a great save was made by the Boston goalkeeper...

From this point onwards, Alty’s heads dropped... the youngsters go[ing] four down... In the last few minutes of the game, Boston jumped on an Alty mistake and scored their fifth goal of the game..

Squad on the day: Dane Byron, Sam Bonney Phillips, Joel Bailey, Kaiden Powell, Ian Jose, Harry Douglas, Max Whittle, Alfie Curwen, Kyran Webster, Afernee Denise, Harrison Howells, Alfred Igbinake, Jack Chandler, Edson Cata.

On Wednesday Altrincham FC U19 A Red a.k.a. Altrincham FC Academy beat Darlington FC U19s 3-1 to extend their unbeaten run to four games and lift themselves to fifth in the thirteen-strong NLFA North Division.

Before that match they had drawn at home to second-placed Ntotts County academy who trail the league leaders, Blyth Spartans U19 Academy by six points.

Altrincham FC Academy player Tom Jones reported on a 1-1 home draw with Notts County Academy on the Altrincham FC website.

He wrote that "The young Robins... came within five minutes of yielding a notable win...

The back four of McGeady, Igeze, Bailey and Bonney-Phillips battled fiercely in their defensive half, with Byron in the sticks rarely having a save to make. .. and midfield trio of Chambers, German and Njie... dictated the play to such an extent that County barely had a sniff of the ball...

After 65 minutes, Altrincham countered off a well-defended corner, with Williams leading the charge down the right wing. Williams' great run led to a goal, as he placed the ball right in front of Jones for an easy tap in, with the goalkeeper having no chance.

Substitutions were made after 70 minutes, with Dixon coming on for Jones, Adeniyi for Bonney-Phillips and igbanke for Lynch up front. The team showed no sign of resting...

However, a slight lack of concentration around the edge of the box was punished by a thunderous, top corner strike that hauled County level with just five minutes left...

Squad: Dane Byron, Sam Bonney-Philips, Loui Williams, Adam Lynch, Eddie Igeze, Owen German, Sheriff Njie, Joel Bailey, Liam Evans, Ollie Dixon, Yusuf Adeniyi, Ewan McGeady, Jake Mallen, Tom Jones, Sam Chambers, Alfred Igbinake

Now branded as "Altrincham FC U19 A Red", the Altrincham FC Under-19 team has had a mixed time recently with one win, a draw and two defeats in its four most recent fixtures.

A long trip on 23 November 2022 to play Gateshead FC U19s North ended in a 2-1 defeat to The Heed youngsters in the North Division.

They then drew 1-1 in North Division league match away to FC Halifax Town U19 before a Cup match on 30 November, 2022 saw them lose at home 2-3 to York city's under-19s in a cup tie.

In their first match of the New Year, on 6 January in the North Division, they beat Boston United FC U19 3-2. Having fallen behind by half-time, the Alty team recovered to lead 3-1 before Gateshead netted a second. The goals for Altrincham came from Cata, Njie and a penalty converted by German.

13 November 2022


Altrincham FC under-19 player Loui Williams reports on his side's 5-2 home win over Chesterfield U-19s in the National League North Division at Egerton...

Chesterfield "managed to be the only team to beat Alty twice last year.

The Robins started the game in fast and aggressive fashion... This positive start was rewarded 15 minutes in, as right-back Ewan McGeady played a great pass in between the defensive line for striker Adam Lynch to take around the keeper and calmly slot the ball in the back of the net for the opening goal.

It wasn’t long before Alty doubled their lead, as right winger Loui Williams pressed the Chesterfield goalkeeper and managed to win the ball before cutting it back for attacking midfielder Sheriff Nije, who despatched his shot beyond a line of defenders on the line to make it 2-0...

Chesterfield's efforts were finally rewarded with the last kick of the first half...[as] the number nine, who had an easy finish...

Alty built on their defensive resilience with a third goal 10 minutes into the second half...Williams.. drove forward and squared it for Lynch to finish... 10 minutes later... left winger Ryan Morton went on a great run and rounded it off with a cool finish under the goalkeeper.

A brief loss of concentration resulted in a second for Chesterfield...

Williams was eventually brought down in the opposition box, winning a penalty for the Robins. Up stepped Alty number six German to send the goalkeeper the wrong way from the spot...

Altrincham FC has tweetd that "A few days ago, some of the brightest stars from the Alty FC Academy, Ryan Morton and Ryan Forde, were presented with their shirts from their first-team debuts.

In addition Joe Cooney (right) collected the H Division shield".

The Academy team won the National League U19 Alliance Division H title in its first competitive season.

Whilst Morton made a substitute appearance for the first team in the penultimate match of the 2021-22 season at Bromley, goalkeeper Forde did not actually make any first-team appearances. However, he was apparently issued with squad number 31.
