Everyone at the club were very shocked and saddened to hear of the death of former captain Richard Bannister last weekend. Rich joined us in our first season as Altrincham Hale almost 10 years ago, and quickly established himself as one of the most committed and determined in the group, becoming captain almost immediately. He played 99 times for the club, scoring just the once – but what a goal it was. Known as much for his determination on the pitch, his fantastic ability to score own goals, and lighting up any social event – by either his choice of outfit or mischievous antics.
We will hold a minutes silence at all of our games to remember Rich this weekend, but we wont forget the contribution he made to our football club – on the pitch and socially.
Our thoughts are with his family.
