Non-league: Robins poised to progress upwards
Friday 23 April 1999
After two seasons out of the Conference, Altrincham are poised to win the UniBond League. The Cheshire side are not in action tomorrow but their two title rivals, Worksop Town and Guiseley, meet at the former's Sandy Lane ground. If that game is drawn, Altrincham can secure the championship with a win at Frickley Athletic next Tuesday.
Even if they slip up then, the Robins will still have two more league games in which to secure the points they need. They would also go up as runners-up in the unlikely event of Worksop winning the title, because Sandy Lane does not meet Conference requirements.
In the Ryman League, thanks to Aylesbury United's unexpected 1-0 home defeat to Heybridge Swifts on Tuesday Sutton United could have claimed the title and promotion to the Conference with a home win against Aldershot Town on the same evening. Heavy rain made the Gander Green Lane pitch unplayable, however, and the two sides were trying again last night.
Farnborough Town were relegated from the Conference last weekend. Leek and Welling are likely to join them.
