You’ve played a blinder!

In the programme for last month’s game against Workington, we launched the  ‘Radio Robins Season Ticket’, whereby supporters could make a suggested donation  of £10 for receiving the benefit of the club’s internet radio service for the  2012/13 season.

We have been delighted with the response and I am pleased to say that  donations have been received for over £500 during the last month… we are  over half way towards achieving our objective of £1,000 for the season!

Many thanks to those who have made a contribution. £10 was the suggested  figure, but some people have contributed more than that and we have been  delighted to receive some very nice comments in letters and on the Fans’ Forum,  a small selection of which are below:-

  • ‘I agree that there should be open access to your excellent service, (it  gets better and better), with voluntary donations. I know that Alty values every  penny from everyone, which is why, among  many other reasons too, it is such a wonderful club’. Alan, Wolverhampton
  • ‘Thank you for the hard work that goes into supplying the service. It is  much valued’. Rob,Timperley.
  • ‘Maintaining Radio Robins for me is essential. I was a regular supporter in the 50’s and 60’s. Now apart from Bishop’s Stortford and Histon, my only live contact is Radio Robins, which I greatly appreciate’, Steve,Norwich.
  • ‘I absolutely love listening to the commentaries and getting involved with the Chat Room banter’. York Alty
  • ‘£10 for what could be up to 50 games coverage is great value for money, 20
    pence a game for all us “outcasts”. D.A. Alty, Cornwall.

To reach our target for the season, we still need more people to contribute and Season Tickets for Radio Robins can be purchased via the following methods:-

  1. The donate button on the Radio Robins website ( where
    you can pay using Paypal or a number of credit cards or charge cards.
  2. Sending a cheque for £10 to the Club, payable to Altrincham F.C.
  3. Email requesting bank details to pay online.

Thanks again folks, Brian Flynn
