Two goals worth the entrance fee. The second was good but the first was a Wow! Absolutely superb volley that flew into the top corner. Brilliant.

Altrincham were poor and barely troubled us apart from a little flurry in the first ten minutes. They were there for the taking but the question was whether we could finish them off. Didn't look like it first half and again, we squandered many good situations but you felt it was only a matter of time. Didn't take long in the second half but it was a special goal that broke the resistance. For a while after that they were wobbling but we couldn't apply the coup de gras until late in the game when JMD kept his cool and planted the ball in the same top corner as McAtee earlier when a mix up gave him the chance. He finished it expertly.

Thought the two new lads fitted in seamlessly but to be fair they had very little to do defending. Both looked cool on the ball but I was very impressed with Amos. Excellent passing and movement from the back and looks very mobile. His passing was crisp and precise and I think he may have been my MOM. Impressive.

Thought Coke and Fox were very good in midfield and Sousa again looked good until the final third. When Max came on for him, the quality of the crossing went up immediately and I hope he can stay fit and get a run of games.

A game we never looked in danger of losing but tougher tests to come.

I was getting worried about you Ginny, bit late with the just back thread. Did you go for a swift half after to celebrate the win?
Couldn't listen to the game this afternoon so been waiting for this. Pleased to hear good things about the new guys and a very welcome 3 points

Agree with all of that mate. Two very special goals.
Coke had his best game in a Town shirt by a very long way. So good were he and Fox together that we didn't miss Clifton.
Special mention to Shaun Pearson for his lung busting 70? yard run fairly late on. He and Waterfall make a very good pairing at centre back. Altrincham weren't a patch on the side that played us back in October.


I have an inferiority complex-It's not a very good one though.

We played against a very poor team and we still looked average , wake up and smell the coffee we are a mid table team area best , don’t sugar coat a 2-0 win against a poor side as great win and we are back.

Apart from two absolutely great strikes we was average and below . I have seen better on a Sunday morning at Bradley

Very welcome three points - we all needed that.

First half was a bit nondescript although Town always looked the better team.  The Altrincham goalkeeper's leisurely manner and their defenders throwing themselves to the ground when under threat didn't make for a great spectacle.

Obviously, the whole thing got a lot more interesting in the second half (and their goalkeeper got his just desserts).  Two fab goals.  The new players didn't look bad, either.

McAtee was my man of the match - very dynamic and I loved his goal.  I wouldn't say he's the son of God, but he does have a habit of rising again when he's on the ground and you think all is lost.  He usually manages to come away with the ball, too.  Love to watch him play and he adds something very special to the team.  (Also loved Shaun's little foray into their half - he seemed to be going for goal, too - brilliant stuff).


Season 2021-22
Top scorer: McAtee 8
Top assists: Hunt 6, Sousa 6
Most yellow cards:  Clifton 6
Most red cards: Efete 1, Bapaga 1, McAtee 1, John-Lewis 1
