  • Stuart BIMSON (d.o.b. 29 September 1969)

    Stuart became Altrincham's assistant manager on 14 October 2010, having serving in an acting capacity for four weeks before that. Ken McKenna got to know Stuart when the current Alty manager joined Gary Brabin at Cambridge United as scout. Stuart was already on the coaching staff there.

    His playing career had started at Prescot Cables and Ellesmere Port before he joined Southport in 1989. From there he went to Macclesfield Town (1991) before spells with Bury, Lincoln City and Cambridge United (2003-05).

    In 2005 he played for Canvey Island and moved on to Chelmsford City when the Essex side were demoted. From 20062008 he managed Bedford Town before becoming first-team coach of Cambridge United. Financial cuts cut short his role at the Abbey, alongside manager Gary Brabin. After being a scout for Barrow during 2009-2010 season, he joined Altrincham (despite being based in Cambridge), and was appointed assistant manager.

    When Altrincham were relegated at the end of the 2010-11 season, Stuart left Moss Lane.

Next, he joined FCUM where he played 91 times before injury led to his release in December 2009. Adam's brother, Paul, is assistant player-manager for Cambridge United. Adam's arrival at Alty coincided with six-weeks' postponement of league matches due to bad weather and he was also found to be suffering an allergy problem so, by late January, he had still to be named in a squad. However, he made a few appearances from the bench before starting his first game, in central midfield, against Kettering on 16 March 2010. After that he impressed as a skilful player with a good touch but was released in August 2010. He then joined Northwich Victoria. Career appearances for Altrincham: 3(+12).

    Matty returned to Wales in 2010 and, after taking part in pre-season games, he signed for Altrincham for a second time on 5 August 2010.

  • Formerly Chairman
  • Geoff GOODWIN

    Geoff Goodwin, owner of the succesful Eccles-based coach company Go Goodwins, became Chairman at Moss Lane in late July, 2002, with a new Board comprising current acting Chairman Grahame Rowley, Andrew Shaw and Geoff himself. They and subsequent members of the Board brought much needed stability to the club's operations, with a small operating profit being made in 2002-03 and each year since. They battled hard to pay off the club's debts, which they inherited and the local council's ale of the car park at Moss Lane brought a much-needed cash injection in 2007.

    Geoff and his wife Suzanne's son, Jay, is an emerging talent in national kart racing, and in recent years Geoff has quite rightly dedicated much of his time to furthering his son's career. Go Goodwins has also been the official coach company of the England and Wales Cricket Board and Geoff, personally, frequently drove touring cricket teams - notably Rickey ponting's Australians - round the cricket grounds of Britain.

    With his policy of financial prudence, Geoff and his Board turned round the club's financial position and with other over ambitious clubs going bump almost monthly, his model of living within one's means has come by many to be seen for the sensible way forward that it is.

    Geoff relinquished his position as Chairman on 13 September 2010 but agreed to continue to sponsor the club till at least the end of the 2010-11 season.

  • Formerly Manager
  • Graham HEATHCOTE

    Graham Heathcote had a distinguished career at Altrincham as a player, administrator, coach and manager. When he left, by mutual consent, on 14 September 2010, he was, with more than five seasons in the Conference completed, the longest serving current manager in the division to have operated at that level in the entire period in question. He was also Altrincham FC's longest-serving manager since World War II.

    His managerial career started on 14 October 2002, when he replaced Bernard Taylor as manager. Graham has spent more than 30 years at Moss Lane as, firstly, a player and then as coach and was part of the famous Altrincham giant-killing FA Cup side which was a national force in non-league football in 1970s and 1980s. He first became Alty coach under John King but resigned, with King, in early 1998. Bernard Taylor then took over and won the UniBond Challenge Cup that season before, early in 1998-99 season, he appointed Graham as his coach. The two then took the club to the UniBond Championship in 1999 but, in December, Graham resigned.

    Lying 10th in March 2000, Altrincham were relegated from the Conference in May after a disastrous final 11 games, at which point Bernard Taylor resigned. After Mark Ward's managership (2000-01), Graham was again appointed as coach to manager Bernard Taylor, in March 2001. In June 2002 Graham's coaching contract was not renewed by the then Board and Andy May took over as Bernard's new coach for 2002-03. Financial constraints led to a big cut in the playing budget and the side suffered a poor run of results from March 2002, winning only 7 competitive matches out of 35 until Bernard and Andy were dismissed in October 2002 and Graham took over as manager. Graham has also had brief spells in management elsewhere, notably at Barrow and Witton, as well as being John King's assistant at Runcorn.

    Graham and his assistant, Dalton Steele, masterminded a return to the Conference National division for 2005/06, which must rank alongside the club's greatest achievements, given its limited resources. Even more commendably they steered the team to 18th place in the National division in 2006 on the lowest budget in the division, only to be docked 18 points following Accrington's registration lapse with James Robinson.

    Before becoming manager, Graham Heathcote was Club Secretary and had previously served as coach/ assistant manager/ secretary under both John King and Bernard Taylor. Before that he was a key member of the playing staff, making 502 appearances for The Robins. He was honoured with a testimonial game in 2001-02 against Macclesfield Town and his playing profile is here.

He began the 2009-10 season as a regular starter but suffered knee ligament damage in mid-September which was diagnosed in mid-October as a ruptured cruciate ligament.

After intially playing on the left, he now always starts up front and was once again the club's leading scorer in 2005-06 and 2006-07 with 17 and 12 Conference goals respectively. After a slow start to 2007-08 he recorded a superb tally of 21 BSP goals from just 34(+5) starts to finish the season third in the national scoring charts. Colin has turned down numerous offers to play at a higher level but remains dedicated to his local club.
