Witton Albion to host forum for fans at which club's future objectives will be outlined

Northwich Guardian: Manager urges fans to attend meeting Manager urges fans to attend meeting

MARK Harris says Witton’s supporters have a pivotal part to play in helping the club to reach its objectives, both during this season and beyond.

The Albion chairman plans to explain how at a fans’ forum on Wednesday, from 7.30pm.

“We need all hands on deck,” he said.

“The team has made an excellent start to the season following promotion on the pitch in April, but we must make sure there is an infrastructure in place to help us continue to progress.

“Wednesday’s meeting is about kicking on, particularly as we have a unique opportunity at this time to cement our position as the number one club in the town.”

Manager Brian Pritchard will answer fans’ questions too.

His team occupies a play-offs place in the Evo-Stik Northern Premier League top tier as the season reaches its halfway point, but he says he needs help to keep it there.

“It’s so important that as many fans as possible are come along,” he said.

“We’ll be there to answer the questions they want to ask, as well as making it clear what is needed to keep us in the position we’ve got ourselves into so far.”

The duo will describe specific ways in which supporters can help, whether that be as volunteers or through taking part in events to raise money.

Harris and Pritchard will identify too Witton’s short, medium and long term goals.

The forum takes place in the social club at the Premier Division outfit’s Help for Heroes Stadium.

In Northwich...

The future is bright.

The future is Red and White.

Great season so far. Money needed to progress onwards and upwards.

If that means renting the ground to the new 'Dane Waderers' then so be it. oney coming in to strenghen the team and the club which will result in gate figures increasing.

Got to keep an open mind about all these things.

Rubbish TETELLEROFTAILS! We should NOT help the new Vics in ANY way. We are the ONLY senior team in town, why on earth should we risk this new club challenging us in five or six years time? They have nowhere to go in Mid Cheshire and long may that continue. They can ground share with Lostock or Barnton and play in the Cheshire League. Playing at either of these grounds will ensure they never progress to our level.

Hi WHS.
Believe me I am not a Vics fan. After they shafted Witton all those years ago I feel they have got what they deserved. It's taken some time but speaking as a Wittoner, it's been well worth the wait...and if any Vics fans read this and wonder what I am on about, ask your Dad.
The point I am making is that to continue to progress up the non-league pyramid Witton need to consider all income streams. If charging someone rent, and that money is put back into the team which then rises up the leagues which in turn means an increase in gate figures...well let's not rule it out.
If nothing comes of it then so be it but lets keep an open mind because I would like to think that the people running 'Dane Wanderers' are not the short sighted ar****le bigots of old...or so I would like to think.
In Mid-Cheshire...
The future is bright.
The future is red and white.

In Pritch We Trust.
