Re: Bits & Bobs

John Prescott and John Alty didn't get the credit they deserve for the effort they put in. John P stood aside to allow John A to be chairman. John P was a true "custodian" chairman, as he simply didn't have access to the finance to move the club forward's ( neither did anybody else!)

John Alty had the drive, had access to raise and borrow money ( mainly to improve the pitch) then improve the clubhouse so the club could improve income. Sadly John wanted instant success on the field which resulted in numerous late night Board meetings. The outcome of some was a cut in the managers budget and at the next one another sacking/ resignation!!

Loved John Alty, true gent to this day and always asks how people are - by name. Last I saw him he snook off to the bar and a got a large round in for the group to be delivered after he'd gone, touch of class

Re: Bits & Bobs

Another one for the Media Team to "interview"

A list is being complied, thanks Darren Woodhead for some good suggestions.

Any more ideas or do we need a new thread??

hope you are right cashy. what surprises me is that billy is still with us. goal scorer, good attitude and a tough lad without and arrogance about him. seems a nailed on signing for a club with more money than us.

I'm basing my view on the way hes been handled at accy, with his problem, i may be wrong but i think Billy aint daft and is also loyal.

Re: Bits & Bobs

I dont think Billy wants to be a professional footballer, he just wants to be paid to play football. Stanley get that, other clubs dont
