    It is a while since we engaged in meaningful combat with Alty, but if old hedgie’s memory of matters on the park are a tad sketchy as far as Alty v County is concerned, your faithful scribe is as resolved as ever to head for the Cheshire wetlands dressed for the Delhi monsoon season ……please….ignore the weather forecasts…listen to hedgie….don the mack and the layers!

    It is but a short hop from Stockport to the stadium, which has a capacity of  just over 6000 so there is plenty of room , and no reason at all for the away end ( only) to be all ticket as it was the last time we visited these parts!

    The toilets left a lot to be desired last time ( 2016) but hopefully will be better this season!

    Beware the bogs !

    Musical Instruments , for some bizarre reason, were banned last time around, hence hedgie’s impromptu performance on the spoons ( see pic) ................

    Spoons solo fails to draw an audience!

    .......................lets hope for a more musically enlightened approach in 2018/19( but the spoons will be in my pocket!)


    Whilst the  quality of the food on offer is generally fine,  the system of `popular prices’ ( well…. they like ‘em) is irksome.
    Eat afore yee go was hedgie`s advice, but late word from the Altrinham club is worth consideration.............
