Knowing The Opposition
Skilful and pacey winger John Johnston was Phil Parkinson’s first signing and he quickly established himself as a fan favourite amongst the Alty faithful. Known for his impressive runs down the wing, JJ was a key part of the attacking team that won the EvoStik in 2017/18, scoring 20 goals in all competitions in his first season.
John began his career with Kidsgrove Athletic before making the move to Leek Town. His performances for Leek were so impressive that he earned himself a move to Crewe Alexandra, from where he went out on loan to Leek, Alfreton and Salford City, before he signed for the Ammies on a permanent basis. He later spent time on loan at Nantwich under Phil Parkinson.
Striker Jordan Hulme is one of Alty’s leading lights. Skilful, energetic and aggressive, Jordan is a match for any opposition defence, as he showed in his first season for Alty, bagging an impressive 31 goals in 54 appearances, culminating in his being named EvoStik League player of the season.
Jordan played local football before joining Padiham and then Ramsbottom United, before following the Rams’ management team to Salford City in 2015.
The Community Sports Hall is open for every first team match. The bar is equipped with several HD TV screens and a Premier League match is usually shown on Alty matchdays. Food and non-alcoholic drinks are also available at the permanent catering facility at the Golf Road End and from the mobile canteen at the away end, both of which are open for all first-team games.
