Gards makes it 350!

Anthony Gardner, signed from Cammell Lairds, made his Albion debut in a pretty notable match on January 11th 2011.

There were only 59 spectators gathered at a freezing Crilly Park, the home ground of Atherton Laburnum Rovers, as Albion played their NPL First Division against ground sharing Leigh Genesis.

At the end of the 90 minutes Witton had notched up an 8-0 victory: Carl Frost, Andy Kinsey, Richie Foulkes & Dave MacPherson all netting twice.

Our latest match, against Mickleover, saw Gards make his 350th appearance, 330 starts and he currently sits 10th in our list of post 1945 First Team appearances. One behind the legendary Joe Dale by the way.

Congratulations Ant and here's to further progressing up that chart.
