Cometh the hour, cometh the men. We have secured Phil Parkinson and Neil Sorvel for the next three seasons. We have given the management the funds to strengthen the squad, and we have seen a number of high-quality new signings to bolster the already-impressive list of players retained for the challenges of the season ahead.
We have begun a series of ground improvements, all focused on improving the matchday experience at The J.Davidson Stadium. We have great ambition to drive this club forward, both on and off the field, but in a truism that applies right across football, the limiting factor to what we can achieve is money.
We have set an aggressive budget for the 2019-2020 season, and we are determined to achieve our goals. We are grateful that the attractive football we play means we are being supported in greater numbers than ever before, with many of our new fans looking at ways that they, too, can get behind the team.
With this in mind, Altrincham FC are delighted to launch our latest fund-raising initiative – Alty Rewards. For a monthly contribution to the club, Alty fans become eligible for unique rewards, increasing in attractiveness, the more you contribute.
The scheme, suggested to us by supporters, adds to our existing portfolio of fund-raisers and offers an alternative method of making your contribution to our success in a way we hope will strike a chord with a range of our supporters for whom the existing schemes do not appeal.
Crucially, given our wish to include everyone in our shared aim of continued success for Altrincham FC, we hope and believe this approach will allow a whole new section of our fan base to play their part in our push for promotion.
Commercial director Lawrence Looney explained the thinking behind the scheme by saying: 'Last year, we came so close to promotion – but this season we want to do better. We think Alty Rewards will help us achieve our goals for 2019-20.
'It offers fans a simple and effective way of making a contribution to our budget and offers great rewards in return. The scheme has a minimum contribution of £5 per month to a top tier of £100 per month. Our new partners, LoveAdmin, will manage this on our behalf – they provide a simple and effective software platform to manage membership and subscription schemes like Alty Rewards.'
Alty manager Phil Parkinson added: 'This is a great initiative from the club and a fantastic opportunity for our fans to contribute to our playing budget. The board have made a big investment in the team this season, and by getting behind the scheme, you all can help lift us to the next level.'
So why not get behind the Robins and help boost the playing budget by signing up to Alty Rewards. You can join the scheme through this link:
