Altrincham FC Reserves
Now (August 2019) managed by Joel Swift, assisted by Ryan Barry, Altrincham FC Reserves were re-formed in summer 2014 after the Club had not operated such a team since the end of 2006-07 season.
Altrincham FC Reserves play in the The Hallmark Security Cheshire Football League Premier Division, following two successive promotions. Home games are normally played at Egerton Youth Club, Heath Lane, High Legh, Knutsford WA16 6SL

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.

25 October 2019 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.

This Saturday (12th), in the Cheshire County FA Amateur Cup, Second Round, Altrincham FC Reserves beat Stoconians AFC 6-1 in a home match. Stoconians FC, formed in 1928, hail from Offerton, Stockport.
According to their Twitter account, Stoconians put in a "Great performance until the keeper got sent off. Poor decision by the assistant ref. The ball quite clearly hit him in the face".
Alty went ahead after two minutes of the game but Stoconians levelled three minutes later through Irwin.
On 17 minutes Altrincham were reduced to ten men for ten minutes as the new "sin bin" rule came into effect. The score remained 1-1 at the interval.
Four minutes into the second half the visitors' goalkeeper was sent off for handling outside the penalty area. Stoconians insisted the ball had hit the keeper in the face. From the resulting freekick, Altrincham regained the lead (50 mins).
It became 3-1 just after the hour mark and 4-1 in the 65th minute before two late goals wrapped up a 6-1 win.

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. Dolan made it 3-0 in the 62nd minute before Shaun Densmore completed the scoring.
As Alty await their rival's results, Pilkington's next game is away this Saturday to Greenalls Padgate St. Oswald's.
Altrincham's side tonight included four first-team squad members. Shaun Densmore, Simon Richman, Max Harrop and loanee Callum Dolan were all in a starting eleven, which also included trialist left-winger Kieran Holsgrove (18) who came through the West Bromwich youth system before joining Watford.

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).

Above, Ben Elliott (9) nets the opening goal.
An Altrincham Reserves' team, including five first-team squad members in its starting eleven, overcame Knutsford 2-0 on Saturday afternoon. Altrincham led at half-time thanks to a close-range goal from Ben Elliott after a Gabidon shot came out to him in the 18th minute.
Soon after the interval, an impressive freekick from Max Harrop, awarded for a foul on him, found the top corner of the net. The visitors hit the post twice in as many second-half minutes but Alty's win keeps them top of the Cheshire League.
Above, Max Harrop (just off picture to the left) puts his second-half freekick into the net.
