    Altrincham FC Youth lost 0-2 at home to Woodley Sports on Tuesday evening at Wythenshawe Town. Woodley were deserved winners, netting their first goal just after the interval against a very young Altrincham side lacking several regulars. A report is here.

    Altrincham FC Youth had a fine 3-1 win at Morecambe last Sunday. Their next matches are scheduled to be

    FIRST TEAM INVOLVEMENT

    Above l. to r.: At Grimsby we see James Smart with Ryan Brown and Marc Joseph; Adam Reid; and Sam Langford with assistant first-team manager, Stuart Bimson.

    Altrincham called on two youth team members to join their first-team squad on Monday at Grimsby. They were left-winger Sam Langford and defender James Smart. Seven youth teamers have been named in squads for the first-team this season; as well as Sam and James, these were Ashley Woods, Matt Fearon, Jake Barnabas, Joe Coombs and Theo Kidd. Also at Grimsby on Saturday was youth goalkeeper Adam Reid who gave a fine display of shot stopping in the warm up at Blundell Park. However, Adam is not registered for the Conference and was therefore not in the squad to face the Mariners.

    SEVEN GET CALL UP

    Seven of Alty's Youth team were in the Altrincham first-team squad on Tuesday for the Cheshire Senior Cup Final. And six of them got onto the pitch during the game. The entire back four at kick-off comprised Youth Team players, with Matt Fearon at right back, Jake Barnabas on the left and Joe Coombs with James Smart being the central pairing. Both Ashley Woods and Theo Kidd were secind-half substitutes whilst Sam LAngford was the unlucky player not to get off the bench.

    In the Sale & Altrincham Advertiser, after the game, Alty manager Ken McKenna said "I think the young lads at the back did very well overall. We put out a very young side while Northwich used their extra experience to win the game".

    MOSSLEY VIEW

    The excellent Mossley website has a report of Sunday's game against Alty Youth which revals that "Despite playing without a recognised goalkeeper Mossley still had to much for an understrength Altrincham side in Sunday's encounter... Antony Dorney was the man between the sticks for Mossley as regular keepers Nick Howard and James Dean were both unfit... Wes Harney, who had struggled to get into the game in the first half then became Mossley's hero with a well taken second half hat-trick... The two sides meet again next Sunday at Seel Park in the semi final of the NWYA Open Cup".
    3 April 2011

    ALTY YOUTH 0 MOSSLEY YOUTH 4

    With five of Altrincham's regular players rested in advance of their possible involvement in the Cheshire Senior Cup this Tuesday - The Robins have several first-teamers injured, ineligible or suspended for that game - this was always going to be a difficult match against a good Mossley side, and so it proved. But the match was marred by the need to call two ambulances to deal with a suspected fractured ankle for Mossley's Alex Clarke and a broken left collar-bone for Alty's Sam Grimshaw. Trailing 1-0 at the interval, Alty enjoyed their best spell early in the second half before conceding three further goals. Report here.

    LATE GOAL BEATS ALTY

    It was 15 weeks since Alty Youth had played a home league game (on 31 October 2010) when they took on FC United of Manchester Youth on Sunday afternoon. The visitors had not dropped a point all season but Alty, despite lacking several regular players, held them until the 89th minute beofre losing 2-1, with Theo Kidd putting Alty ahead in the first half.

    TOM DOES WELL

    News of a recent Alty Youth defender of two or three seasons back comes from Tom Cosgrave who informs us that he was in the SSAC (Southern States Athletic Conference) League team of year 2010 for Belhaven FC in the USA, after making 42 appearances and scoring 5 goals. Tom has been on a soccer scholarship in Mississippi, USA since leaving the Alty Youth team in 2009.

    The Belhaven site adds that "Tom Cosgrave, a sophomore defender who hails from Manchester, England, was selected for a spot on the 2010 SSAC All-Tournament team of year. Cosgrave provided solid defense in Belhaven’s tournament games in which the Blazers posted a solid 8 shutouts. On the season Cosgrave has a pair of goals and four points from his defender position".

    Altrincham FC Youth went out of the NWYA Open Cup in the Second Round on Sunday, losing 2-1 at home to Nantwich Town. Ashley Woods, who played for the first team last Tuesday, had given Alty the lead scoring after his early penalty had been saved.

    FIRST TEAM ACTION

    Both Matthew Fearon and Ashley Woods were in the Altrincham first-team squad last night for the Cheshire Senior Cup match against Hyde FC. Ashley got onto the pitch for the final quarter of an hour and immediately helped Damian Reeves to score but the effort was ruled offside! Matthew did not get on but the experience of being with the first team will have been a good one for both players.

    YOUTH WIN

    Altrincham & District FA's Youth team (comprising Altrincham FC Youth) beat Macclesfield & District Youth 3-1 on Sunday morning. Whether Alty progress to the final depends on Crewe's game with Stalybridge, which was postponed at the weekend.

    JOSH RETURNS

    Altrincham FC Youth team manager George Heslop recently sought a recruit to his coaching team and the call has been answered...

    Indeed, it was like an "old boys" convention at the Altrincham FC Youth match on Sunday - and that is not a reference to manager George Heslop! In fact there were three of George's former youth team players at the game. Josh Collins, winger in George's Alty Youth sides of 2002-03 and 2003-04, when he played alongside Lewis Chalmers, Steve Lunt and the Lugsden twins, who all reached Alty's first team, has joined the coaching team for Altrincham FC Youth. Josh spent three years in the USA playing for DC United reserves and first team before a spell in Australia. When George Heslop recently asked for help with coaching, Josh approached his former manager and joined the team. Josh is seen on the right of the adjacent picture, playing for Alty Youth.

    Also watching the match was Youth team captain of 2004-05 and 2005-06, Richard Gresty, who also represented the English Colleges' national team whilst with Alty. Richard has since had spells at a number of clubs including Stalybridge Celtic. And from nearer twenty years ago, Paul Jones, was also a spectator. Paul played for George in Sunday league as well as graduating to the Altrincham FA District youth team under George's guidance.

    YOUTH TEAM FIXTURES 2010-11

    They have only just finished the 2009-10 season, but Altrincham FC Youth have already planned two pre-season friendlies. After a trial match on 27 June, from which manager George Heslop will start to reshape his squad - a major task, given that most of his players from last season are now over-age for the under-18s' North West Youth Alliance Premier Division in 2010-11, two pre-season games have been arranged:
  • Sunday 11 July at 2pm at Blessed Thomas Holford, versus Congleton Town
  • Saturday 17 July at 11am at Egerton Youth Club, Knutsford, versus Macclesfield Town.

    SEVEN-POINT MARGIN

    After applying the points adjustments for fair play (points are lost if bookings exceed certain levels), Altrincham ended up winning the Premier Division by a margin of seven points.
