Ian Langford has kindly supplied a report on Altrincham Women's 5-3 win at Penwortham Town, back in early September. The Alty Files apologises for the delay in publishing this which is entirely down to the website and not Ian!

The game ended Penwortham Town LFC 3 Altrincham Women 5

Ian writes, "Altrincham Women rekindled the magic of the cup with a delightful performance at the Vernon Carus Sports Club.

Altrincham had an indifferent start to the season with a win, a draw and 3 defeats including a 7-2 home defeat a fortnight ago.

In contrast Penwortham had three wins and a draw which saw them reside at the summit of the NWWRFL Division 1 North.

The early exchanges saw both keepers making fine saves to keep the game scoreless. The ninth minute saw Altrincham take the lead when a fine cross from the left found Megan Rowley who controlled the ball and calmly lifted it over the keeper from seven yards.

Megan Rowley scored her second on 22 minutes when she scored directly from a corner. Jade Hesketh made it 3-0 just before half-time when she dispatched a loose ball from eight yards past the keeper.

HT Penwortham Town LFC 0 Altrincham Women 3

The second half saw Altrincham continue to play some nice football, playing out from the back the Parkinson way. They were rewarded with a fourth on 59 minutes when three players combined to find Jade Hesketh who scored her second from seven yards.

The home side got on the score sheet on 70 minutes with a delightful 25 yard free kick.

Penwortham then began to show why they were top of their league as they then started an onslaught of the Alty goal. Town got their second on 79 minutes when a cross from the right found an unmarked player to score from nine yards.

Substitute Laura Kelly alleviated the pressure on 87 minutes after outpacing the defence to run on to a through ball to poke it pass the keeper from 18 yards to make it 5-2.

Penwortham scored another cracking 25 yard free- kick on 89 minutes to reduce the deficit to two goals.

Lauren Diskin made an excellent save in the 91st minute pushing an 18 yard free kick onto the post as the home side continued their onslaught.

Finally after seven minutes of injury time the FT whistle was blown and Altrincham had earned a place in the next round."

21 September 2022


Altrincham FC announce that the club has "taken a significant step towards further developing an already-successful women’s section by sanctioning the creation of an Academy for girls next year.

The new Academy will be launched next September, and... the aim is to provide a pathway to the senior squad for youngsters in the area...

'We already have 20 girls’ teams in the club’s junior section,' said Alty director Cathal Morrison. 'The women’s section, in general, is going from strength to strength, and this is the perfect opportunity to keep building the pathway between junior and senior football for girls in and around the area.'

The scheme is being launched in partnership with Trafford College, and any girls currently in year 11 at school are eligible to apply for trials".

Honours were even in a 6 goal thriller at Chester's impressive 1885 Arena.

The Robins led 1-0 & 2-1 but were pegged back on each occasion and it looked as if the home side woukld be the victors when they went into the lead for the first time to make it 3-2 but a last gasp equaliser secured a result for new manager, Nick Pearce, who was taking charge of his first game since being appointed in January.

Altrincham's goalscorers were Jade Hesketh, Megan Rowley and Casey Beamon.

The Women are next in action on Sunday in a behind closed doors fixture against Northwich Vixens at Egerton FC, Knutsford, which will be Altrincham FC Women's home venue this season".
