In the opposite dugout – Phil Parkinson

Phil Parkinson was appointed on 28 April 2017, the eve of the last game of the 2016/17 season in which Altrincham had been relegated to the Northern Premier League. Phil arrived three days after his former club, Nantwich Town, had lost in the Evo-Stik Northern Premier League promotion play-off semi-final at Spennymoor Town. He had managed the Dabbers since February 2015 and in that time, he had transformed them from a relegation-threatened club to promotion contenders. Phil also took Nantwich to the FA Trophy semi-finals in 2016.

As a player, he was a junior at Crewe Alexandra, and then at Reading, before having a year at Port Vale. He made some 200 appearances for Nantwich as a player, where he captained the team that won the FA Vase in 2006, as well as leading the Dabbers to promotion from the North West Counties League and UniBond League First Division.

Phil enjoyed promotion from the NPL as champions in his first season and reached the play-offs in 2018/19 in National League North before winning promotion to the National League via the play-offs in 2020.

One to watch – Ryan Colclough

Winger Ryan Colclough made a surprise debut from the Altrincham bench against Bromley on 24 November 2020, having been signed that day on a short-term contract after departing from Scunthorpe United where, ironically, he had been keeping Alty loanee Andy Dales out of the side.

On 12 December 2020, after just one start and two appearances from the bench for Altrincham, Ryan signed for the club until the end of 2021/22 season.

Earlier in his career, after more than three years at Crewe (2012-16), Ryan moved to Wigan Athletic and went on loan from there to MK Dons before signing for Scunthorpe United in August 2018.

On 24 November 2020 he made his Alty debut at home to Bromley and has five goals to his name this season.
