30 October 2019


On a cold Tuesday night at the J. Davidson Stadium, Altrincham lifted the Cheshire Football League Memorial Cup after overcoming Whaley Bridge Athletic 4-1.

With a starting eleven that included Toby Mullarkey, Max Harrop and new signing Luke Wall (pictured right), Altrincham went ahead in the fourth minute. But James O'Hara paid a high price for netting the opening goal, at the back post from a corner, as he ended up in the back of the net and, after lengthy treatment, had to be stretchered off with a leg injury.

Max Harrop netted a second goal in the 16th minute when his 25 yard freekick evaded the visitors' keeper. A fine run and finish by Luke Wall made it 3-0 in the 24th minute.

The second half was a more even affair but Alty added a fourth goal in the 52nd minute when Curtis Miller finished smartly. Athletic's German scored a consolation corner following a Whaley Bridge corner in the 70th minute.

Altrincham FC reports that "A group of friends are trying to raise money for Ryan Barry, our Reserve Team Player Coach, who just over three weeks ago was taken to hospital.

Right: Ryan is seen playing for the youth team in 2011.

Since then he has had two major, life-changing operations and has been informed that he won’t be able to return to his profession as a personal trainer for some time. As he is self-employed, they are trying to raise money so that he doesn’t feel the financial troubles as much during his recovery.

Ryan has been involved with the club for over seven years and has consistently represented and captained the Reserves throughout the seasons he has played. More recently, Ryan has undertaken the role of Player Coach due to his willingness to improve the younger players coming through into the Reserve set up.

The club will be hosting a fundraiser dinner on the 23rd November. It’s £20 a ticket and tables of 10/12 are available. Please leave the club a message here to book in for this event.

If anyone has any material items, new or old that they wouldn’t mind donating for a raffle/auction on the night to raise money, then that would also be much appreciated.

There is also a GoFundMe page where fans can donate if they wish.

The result left them awaiting the outcome of Pilkington FC's remaining fixtures to determine who will be the Cheshire League Premier Division champions. The second-placed side needs to win its three remaining fixtures to match Alty's points tally. If they do so, goal difference would determine the destination of the championship.

After a goalless first half against Greenalls, four Altrincham goals in a ten-minute spell in the second half settled the encounter. Reece Colley broke the deadlock in the 54th minute with Callum Dolan (right) doubling the advantage barely a minute later.

In Tuesday night's match at the J. Davidson Stadium, Knutsford side Egerton FC took a 26th minute lead from the penalty spot. The visitors' striker, Darius Ofei, won possession but was brought down by Tom Clarke as he got into the box. The number nine got up to beat Andrew Jones from twelve yards.

Right: Alty salute Callum Dolan after his goal had made it 3-1. Left to right we see Dontai Gabidon, Matt Cook, Callum Dolan, Tom Clarke, Sam Heathcote and Jordan Hulme, with Reece Coley in the background.

Nine minutes later, Alty levelled the score when Jordan Hulme, playing to regain fitness after serving his four-match suspension, turned well and netted. The visitors had looked threatening up front but were disappointed to concede a second goal just before the interval when Reece Coley tapped in, after good work on the right by Dontai Gabidon.

The second half saw Altrincham impose themselves but the visitors matched the hosts' tally of three second-half goals. First of all, Alty made it 3-1, three minutes after the break, when a corner from the right evaded Sam Heathcote but fell for new signing Callum Dolan. From more than twenty yards he lashed a fierce drive into the net.

Substitute Ben Elliott made it 4-1 after 69 minutes when he worked himself an opening before finishing confidently. Two minutes later Hulme made it 5-1, with a neat dribble inside the box and a calm finish.

But, eight minutes from time, Egerton capitalised on substitute Sam Corbishley's mispass to score their second through Abzuhalli. And the visitors added a third, from the second penalty of the night awarded against Tom Clarke. This one seemed a little harsh but mirrored the sequence of the first spot-kick with Ofei both winning the penalty before converting it (90 mins).

A 76th minute goal from substitute striker Denico Walters gave Altrincham Reserves a 2-1 win in a closely fought match at the J Davidson Stadium on Friday night.

Alty had taken a first-minute lead when Will Smith scored. The visitors had plenty of the ball before half-time and, six minutes after the break, they levelled the score when their burly no.5 headed home a corner.

Walters's winner came from an excellent Max Pouncey freekick.

30 September 2017


On Saturday afternoon at Egerton Sports Club, Knutsford, Altrincham FC Reserves were 3-1 up against Rudheath Social early in the second half of their league match. But torrential rain forced the referee to abandon the game and deprive Alty of what looked likely to be a well-deserved win. One consolation was that all three Altrincham goals were scored by the recuperating Sean Miller, who was playing for the Reserves to regain match fitness.
24 September 2017


On Saturday, a late switch of venue, saw Altrincham Reserves travel to Wythenshawe Town, rather than host the opposition as originally decreed by the fixture list. They lost, however, 3-1. Sean Miller played for the Reserves as he seeks to regain match fitness after his long injury lay-off.

Wythenshawe Town reported that alty's goal came in the 86th minute from Dylan Scanlan. In the final minute there was "A red card for Altrincham's Tom Westall and WTFC's Ben Pond and then the ref sent off [former Alty Youth captain] Richard Gresty" of Wythenshawe Town.

Alty Reserves' next fixture is on Saturday (30th) at home (Egerton) to Rudheath Social FC .

29 August 2017


Altrincham Reserves were away to Congleton Vale on Tuesday night and lost a high-scoring game to the odd goal in seven. In a very good game, Alty went 2-0 down after fifteen minutess before getting back to 2-2, thanks to two goals from Max Harrop, one of which was a penalty. Congleton then went 3-2 up before Joel Swift scored a 30-yard screamer to level the match again. The referee then awarded a dubious free kick, just out side the box shortly before the end, which was really well struck and clinched the game for the hosts.

On Saturday, Altrincham Reserves are away again, to Rudheath Social at Lostock Gralam.
