Match of the Day

1874 Northwich v Chichester City

At stake is a place in the FA Vase last eight, something neither club has enjoyed previously in their history.

1874 Northwich have hired Witton Albion’s Wincham Park home to host the tie, a plan that worked in their favour when Pontefract Collieries visited mid Cheshire last month.

Their guests, from the southern Combination Football League, have won their past five matches in all competitions.

It’s an important afternoon for…

Witton Albion

Carl Macauley’s men have undoubtedly made progress since they lost narrowly against Grantham Town during the teams’ first meeting of the season at the start of December.

January brought with it wins against Altrincham and Nantwich either side of a draw with promotion play-offs hopefuls Ashton United, sending Witton Albion to Lincolnshire this weekend with confidence high.

Their hosts, second in the table, will no doubt test the visitors’ improvement.

And what about…

Middlewich Town

The Witches’ bid to be promoted back to the Cheshire League’s top-flight has been damaged by three successive defeats.

A pause from attempting to repair that could be just what they need with a Mid-Cheshire District FA Challenge Cup quarter-final to prepare for on Saturday.

Winsford Saxons, the defending Crewe and District League champions, will be out to cause an upset at Seddon Street though.

Why not go and give your local side a cheer?
