GOALKEEPERS

13
  • Richard ACTON (d.o.b. 16 October 1979, height 6ft, weight 14st. 2lbs)

    Richard is Alty's reserve keeper. He was at Manchester City (released 1998) before moving to Hyde United and Runcorn. Alty signed him in early September 2002 and he made his league debut against Marine that month. He remained first-choice keeper till he badly injured his shoulder at Harrogate (31/8/03). He did not return to action till 6 January 2004, as Stuart Coburn had returned to claim the no.1 jersey. Richard is an excellent shot-stopper and had League of Wales experience with TNS in March 2004 but returned to Altrincham for most of the 2004-05 season. He signed UniBond forms with Woodley Sports in August 2004 before joining Bangor City but returned to Alty once more in February 2005. Even so, he was on the bench for TNS against Liverpool in European competition (7/05) but also re-signed for Alty for 2005-06. A broken metatarsal suffered in the Cheshire Senior Cup at Woodley sidelined Richard from 13 September 2005 till mid-November when he returned to play against Crewe. Appearances to June 2005: 47.

  • Stuart COBURN (d.o.b. 5 May 1976, height 6ft 1in, weight 14st.)

    In 1997/98 season Stuart joined Altrincham from Trafford, whom he had joined in 1994/95 after spells at Irlam Town and Maine Road. He had one Conference season (99/00) with Alty but played only 9 league games due to injury and his absence probably cost the club survival at that level. In May 2002, the lure of Conference football took him to Leigh RMI on a 2-year contract. Leigh surprisingly released him in October 2003 after he had been their player of the year. He rejoined Alty on 17 October 2003 and made his (second) Alty debut at Hyde on 21 October 2003. After an impressive series of performances Stuart underwent a hernia operation in May 2004 but was fit to star in season 2004-05 when once again he enhanced his reputation, not least with some important penalty saves. He has also shown consistently good form in 2005-06. Appearances to June 2005: 265, 1 goal.

  •  
    27
  • Kurt EDGINTON (d.o.b. 30 October 1968)

    Kurt has been Alty's stand-by keeper over several seasons but has only made a handful of appearances. He originally joined Alty in August, 2001 from Hyde after starting out at Flixton and was re-signed as cover in October 2004. He made his Alty debut at Woodley Sports (Nov.2001) but played only once more for Altrincham that season. He made a surprising return to Altrincham as an unused sub in the FA Trophy win at Bradford PA on 30 November 2002 and also kept goal well in the league match at Marine on 2 December 2002. Kurt is also a useful bowler for Urmston Cricket Club. He signed NW Counties forms for Flixton in late Feb. 2004 but was also back on Alty's books again in both 2004/05 (when he sat on the bench in a cup match) and 2005/06. Appearances to June 2005: 3(+1).

    DEFENDERS

  • Chris ADAMS (d.o.b. 10 October 1975)

    Chris, for many years an Altrincham postman but now working at a meat market, signed from Ashton United in late May 2001, after being at Alty previously in 1997 when he made just one substitute appearance. Before coming to Moss Lane he had played at Congleton Town with his unrelated namesake, Danny Adams. Chris moved from Moss Lane via Nantwich Town to Trafford and has also played at Droylsden, Northwich Victoria and Oldham Athletic in his career. Having returned to Moss Lane, Chris was ever-present in 2001-02 till sidelined by a hernia injury in December but he returned in August 2002 only to be released by Bernard Taylor after just two league games in 2002-03.

    Chris returned to Alty on the appointment of Graham Heathcote as manager and made his third 'debut' on 15 October, 2002 at Burscough, aftewards becoming the regular left-back. Chris was sidelined by a shoulder injury in January 2004 and then broke his right arm in February 2004, which ended his season. In 2004-05 he turned out both at left-back and in left-midfield and was ever-present till injured in late January, after which he returned to earn the Tom Earley Clubman of the Year award in 2005. Chris has twice been Alty's sub goalkeeper. He played 50 minutes in goal, at Harrogate in August 2003 and 35 minutes at Woodley in September 2005. A virtual ever-present early in 2005-06, Chris suffered a hairline fracture in his foot in February 2006 which sidelined him and has been playing much of 2006 whilst not fully fit. Career appearances for Alty at June 2005 - 153(+1), 2 goals.


  • 2
  • Stephen ASPINALL (d.o.b. 10 May 1976)

    Steve Aspinall was signed in early July 2003 from Vauxhall Motors, where he had been during much of the previous two seasons. He is the son of John Aspinall, who played for Tranmere Rovers and Altrincham in the 1980s and managed Bangor City. Steve started his career at Poulton Victoria and was also on Tranmere's books and has also been at Runcorn, (whom he joined from Bamber Bridge in December 2001), Chorley, Winsford, Vauxhall Motors and Macclesfield Town. Though Steve originally played as a central midfielder for Alty, he performed so well at right-back when Gary Scott was injured, that he kept the position. Steve is the first-choice penalty-kick taker and regularly takes free-kicks and corners. Towards the end of 2004-05 an ankle injury sidelined him for several games and he underwent an operation on it in the summer. His comeback for 2005-06 was hindered by continuing ankle/foot problems and he did not start his first Conference game until Christmas 2005 but re-established himself as aregular starter in midfield or at right-back. Appearances to June 2005: 95+3, 13 goals (inc. 11 pens).


  • 15
  • Peter BAND (d.o.b. 18 December 1973)

    Peter signed from Hyde United for a small fee in July 2002. He had joined Hyde United, where he became captain, from Bollington Athletic in July 1998 and was used as a striker. He made his league debut in the fourth game of the 2002-03 season when he appeared in central midfield and scored a goal. Peter soon established himself in the first team and played well in various positions, occupying every outfield role except left-back. He is a whole-hearted player wherever he plays but is probably at his best in central defence. Peter became captain when Mark Maddox was suspended in August 2004 and retained this role even after Mark's return, when he moved into midfield. Peter left for Northwich Victoria on 3 December 2004 but returned in 2005 close season. In 2005-06 he has generally played at centre-back with occasional appearances in central midfield and was Alty's most consistent player in the first half of the campaign. In Spring 2006 he was used in several games as a striker. Appearances for Alty at June 2005 - 154, goals 16.

  • Mark MADDOX (d.o.b. 1 March 1973, height 6ft 1in, weight 12st 7lbs)

    Born in Liverpool, Mark is a centre-back who originally joined Altrincham in 1996 and returned to Moss Lane in December 1998 after a brief spell at Barrow. He established himself as first-choice centre-back and also played occasionally in 1999/2000 at right-back and in midfield. A very popular and whole-hearted player, nick-named 'Mad Dog', Mark is an excellent tackler - outside football he is a care worker. He had a fine season in 2001-02 and firmly re-established himself again as a first-choice centre-back. He assumed the captaincy in 2003 but a hairline heel fracture in the first game of 2003-04 put him out for several weeks. On returning, the injury continued to cause problems and his season was further disrupted when an ear infection sidelined him in December 2003/January 2004. However, he re-established himself as a regular at centre-back and made his 300th appearance in January 2005. Mark was the club's senior professional and a living Alty Legend! In 2005-06 he missed a number of games through injury and suspension but it was neverthless a surprise when he was released in May 2006. Appearances to June 2005: 298+19, 11 goals.

  • Karl MUNROE (d.o.b. 23.9.1979)

    Karl signed for Alty on 24 July 2005 after pre-season trials. He was with Oldham Athletic as a schoolboy and also played for Manchester Boys alongside Wes Brown. He then joined Swansea City as a YTS trainee and made one appearance for the first team. In 1999 he left on a free transfer for a brief spell at Haverfordwest. After a trial with Brighton, he signed for Macclesfield in summer 1999 and played in central midfield. Karl spent much of 2004-05 at Halifax Town but in March 2005 he moved to Northwich Vics, having been sidelined at The Shay by injury. Six-footer Karl, who hails from Cheetham Hill, made his Alty debut as a sub at right back in a friendly against Morton on 16 July 2005 but he has since also played at centre-back. Injured in the opening game of the season, Karl returned to action in mid-September 2005 but was sent off at Burton and suspended in November 2005. He has since figured mostly as a substitute. He suffered an ankle injury in December which sidelined him for several months but returned to action in the Spring though not as a regular starter..


  • 5
  • Gary TALBOT (d.o.b. 6 October 1970)

    Gary Talbot originally signed for Alty towards the end of the 1998/99 season from Winsford United. He is a commanding centre-back and an excellent header of the ball who is also a threat to opponents' goals at corners and free-kicks. His former clubs include Rhyl, Barnton, Wilmslow Albion and Witton Albion. He was sold by Alty to Northwich for a fee of 2,500 on 25 January, 2001 in the wake of Alty's financial rescue package, announced that week. He became the Vics' captain but was released and re-joined Altrincham for the 2002-03 season when he was a regular first-teamer and occasional captain. He has played consistently well for Alty once again in 2004-05 and captained the side on several occasions. A foot injury has caused him to miss several games in the 2005-06 season but he returned in January 2006 after a three-month lay-off. Appearances by June 2004 - 232(+3), goals 17.

  • Eddie HUSSIN (d.o.b. 13 December 1977, height 5ft 10in, weight 12 st.)

    A tough-tackling central-midfielder, Liverpool-born Eddie was a junior at Everton, who released him in May 1997, after he had played for their Reserves and had been in their Premiership squad (1996-97). Following spells with Winsford United, Northwich Vics and Chorley, Eddie joined Altrincham from Marine in mid-June 2004. After a minor knee operation in the summer, Eddie made his debut in a friendly on 4 August 2004 and then started all of the early 2004-05 league games. By October, after regaining fitness, he was playing impressively and, following the departure of Peter Band, was named team captain. A knee injury affected him again towards the end of the season and a cartilage operation was carried out in summer 2005 but a cruciate operation was needed (July 2005), which has kept him sidelined all season, so far.

Under the new transfer rules he was unable to play for Altrincham for 30 days so was loaned out to Radcliffe Borough for whom he played several games in November. Ged started at Oldham Athletic, who released him in summer 1999. Despite being a trialist at Altrincham that close season, he did not join us then. After spells at various clubs, including Stafford Rangers and Leigh RMI, he moved from Stalybridge Celtic to Droylsden in 2002. Ged became a regular for Alty after his debut on 3 December 2005 at Accrington, but he was sidelined by a badly gashed thigh picked up at Crawley in February 2006.

    Former semi-pro international right-sided/central midfielder, Richard signed from Northwich Victoria on 4 February 2005 and made his debut the next day in the FA Trophy. He made his league debut two weeks later at Kettering. He started at Marine (1992-96) and went for 20,000 to Crewe Alexandra in 1996 before injury led to his joining the Vics in 2000. Richard made some 200 appearances for the Vics and also can claim to have scored England's first ever international Futsal goal. He gradually regained fitness as the 2004-05 season drew to a close but was injured in pre-season and had not played in 2005-06 before undergoing an operation in November 2005.

  • Stephen ROSE (d.o.b. 23 November 1980)

    Stephen was a junior with Manchester United before having a loan spell at Bournemouth. He then progressed via Bristol Rovers to Chester City, for whom he played in the Conference in 2001-02, before being released in May, 2002 and joining Alty. Stephen made his UniBond debut on 17 August 2002 and established himself as a virtual ever-present starter. He is a versatile player who has appeared at centre-back, full-back and, in 2003-04, regularly in central midfield for Altrincham. In 2004-05 he played at left-back as well as in left- and central-midfield before breaking his leg at Worcester on 30 October 2004. Stephen returned to action in 2005-06 pre-season and he has started in the Conference this season at right-back but injured an ankle on a buried sprinkler on the pitch at Crewe Alexandra in November. He has figured chiefly as a reliable substitute in 2005-06. Career appearances for Alty at June 2004 - 112(+8), 1 goal.


  • 11
  • Gary SCOTT (d.o.b. 3 February, 1978, height 5ft 8ins, weight 11st 2lbs)

    Gary made his debut for Altrincham on 3 October 2000 as a midfielder (v. Stalybridge). Born in Liverpool, he began his career at Tranmere Rovers but moved to Rotherham United on 7 August 1997. He then played for Marine and Leigh, who released him after he had made 9 Conference appearances. After two games in Alty's midfield, his first appearance for Altrincham at right-back was at home to Leek Town (10/10/00) and he opened his scoring account with two goals at Hyde (16//10/00). Gary played for the Unibond XI against the F.A. XI (22/11/00). Defensive experiments meant that he was an irregular rather than ever-present member of the team at the end of 2000-01 but he became a regular starter in 2001-02, either at right-back or in midfield, until injured in March 2002. He made a brief return at the very end of the 2001-02 season but re-established himself as the regular right-back for 2002-03 and 2003-04 till injury struck in late August 2003. On his return he played mostly in right midfield until a non-football facial injury sidelined him in February 2004 but he recovered to reclaim his place in April 2004. However, a knee injury sidelined him in September 2004 before he returned in October. In early 2005, Gary was playing in left-midfield or left-back but in late summer 2005 had a hernia operation. He has now re-established himself in the team, initially on the left of midfield but more recently at right-back. Appearances by June 2004 - 193(+18), goals 9.

  • Kieran LUGSDEN (d.o.b. 4 April, 1986)

He had played two games for Altrincham before signing, a friendly against Doncaster and a reserve game against Ashton, in which he scored. Rod's brother, Ben, played for Manchester United, Aberdeen and Blackpool, whilst Rod himself works for United and for the England national side as a masseur, a role which sometimes obliges him to miss Altrincham games.
