Player of the Year 2003-2004

24 April 2004


A highly successful STAR Presentation evening and Race Night was held on Saturday. It was attended by virtually all of the Alty first-team squad as well as many supporters- including some from Runcorn. The awards were:

  • STAR Player of the Season - Ian Craney; runners-up Peter Band and Stuart Coburn.
  • Alty Fans' Forum Internet Player of the Season - Ian Craney.
  • Players' Player of the Season - Peter Band; runners up Gary Talbot and Ian Craney.

    Earlier, Stuart Coburn won the Young Supporters' Player of the Season award. Ian is seen, right receiving his award, with compere Brian Flynn.

    Rod Thornley expertly conducted auctions for a signed Geoff Hurst shirt and for a signed England shirt from Euro 2004 which Rod will acquire in his role as England masseur. The Hurst shirt went for £280 and the England shirt for £450.

    Special well-deserved awards were also made, firstly (by Grahame Rowley) to Chairman Geoff Goodwin, for all that he has done for the club and, secondly, to Alan Johnson, who has hung up his camera as Alty's photographer. Congratulations to both! 031004bs.htm
