And last but not least, Sunday sees us welcome a host of former Altrincham players back to The J.Davidson Stadium to celebrate the career of former captain, Jake Moult, whose testimonial game kicks off at 1:00 pm.
Testimonial tickets are compulsory to attend the Beer Festival on Sunday. The aforementioned drinks options will all be available in the Golf Road End marquee, and the club kiosk will be open for food.
Across the weekend, there will be some fantastic food and drink options available at the ground.
You won't be left disappointed by our street food options this year as we have called in the services of two reputable local vendors: Little Red Pizza Company and The Curry Den whose specialities are clued in their respective names.
The Curry Den have worked with us on previous festivals and have always been given rave reviews for their flavourful offerings, while Little Red Pizza Co, who serve pizza cooked over an open fire, come very highly recommended.
Our club catering will also be in full swing with our popular match day options: hot dogs, burgers and fries will all be available throughout the weekend.
Our food & drink offerings will be spread across various locations in the stadium with a large marquee erected by the Golf Road End as per previous years.
On the taps
We have pulled out all the stops to build a beer, ale and stout line-up that truly covers all bases.
Taking centre stage will be draught options from local heroes Stubborn Mule and Dunham Massey Brewery, who feature alongside several barrelled-in options from Marstons, as per previous festivals.
Our canned and bottled options will be plentiful and extensive, with stock brought in from the likes of Shipyard, Cloudwater, Pomona, Track, and Titanic.
If beer and ale aren't your thing, fear not, as we will have a full gin and prosecco bar available, as well as the usual soft drink options.
