“Lucky” Lee explains winning move

Altrincham manager Lee Sinnott said luck played a large part in the substitution that saw Altrincham win their play-off final with Guiseley. Sinnot sent on striker Greg Wilkinson in anticipation of a penalty shootout only to see Wilkinson net the winner.

Sinnott told the local press: “It was luck, pure and simple. People say there are good managers and lucky ones, and if you want to call me a lucky manager, that’s fine by me.

I couldn’t help smiling and saying to those behind me: ‘I sent him on to take a pen, and he’s gone and b***** well won it for us!’ I’m just delighted and so proud for everyone, the chairman and his family, everyone who works for the club, the players and, of course, the supporters. The mantra when I took over was ‘put a smile on faces’. Hopefully, that’s job done.”
