Phil & Co open up for Alty documentary series, and fans can see it first next Thursday


Altrincham FC and Footy Accumulators are proud to announce a Premiere screening of the eagerly-awaited Altrincham FC documentary series at The J.Davidson Stadium on August 29th.

In a series of interviews featuring manager Phil Parkinson, spread over four instalments, the film provides a fascinating, behind-the-scenes account of the methods that have transformed Alty's fortunes, and the club are delighted supporters will have the chance to see it first at next Thursday's Premiere in the Community Sports Hall.

Opening up like never before, the Alty boss provides a compelling insight into what makes him tick and how he combines his passion for football with family life at home, as well as describing the ingredients that are rapidly turning his partnership with Neil Sorvel into one of the most admired and respected in non-League football.

How do they make it work, these two driven but contrasting personalities? All is revealed in absorbing detail.

Other focuses of the documentary episodes include Jordan Hulme and his struggle with the eye condition that put him out of action midway through the season, Tony Thompson's bid to bounce back from the unfortunate ending at home to Brackley Town, and the fans' passion for the Club in the build up to the Blyth play-off fixture.

It's riveting stuff, a must-watch for any Alty aficionado, and you can be present at this exclusive showing simply by turning up to the stadium in good time next Thursday, August 29th, doors opening at 7pm for a 7.30pm start.

Admission is free, the bar will be open, popcorn, nachos and jumbo hotdogs will be on sale, as well as drinks, and there's even complimentary ice cream at the interval.

The first of the four episodes was shown after Alty's 5-3 win over Chorley towards the end of last season, but the other three have yet to see the light of day. All that is about to change, with Footyaccumulators launching the documentary on social media from September 1st and Alty fans having the chance to see all the footage for themselves before it goes on general release.

Admission will be first come, first served, so get there early to be sure of a seat. It's a night no Alty follower will want to miss.
