Australia’s cricketers may have escaped with a draw in the third Ashes test yesterday but there was no such luck for captain Ricky Ponting’s adopted football team at Moss Lane this evening, as Altrincham ultimately went down 2-0 to a United reserve side playing a rare away game at their usual home. A bumper crowd of 1772 guaranteed the hosts a useful payday and got to see a closely-contested game between the Blue Square Premier side and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s United second string, who just about merited the victory earned by goals from Joe Dudgeon and the unfortunate James Smith, who put through his own net with a minute remaining.
