As previously reported, Mike Garnett, a well-known figure at Altrincham's home and away games over many years, died on 28 December. As well as being a familiar face on the terraces, Mike was also well-known to a wider audience through his regular articles in the Robins' Review matchday programme and through his many statistical and other contributions to the club's official website and the Alty Files.

This will take place on Monday 20th January at 1.15pm, followed by a service of committal at Hollinwood Crematorium at 2.30pm.
