Witton Albion's FA Trophy replay against FC United of Manchester put back until next week
FOLLOWING the postponement of tonight’s encounter, Witton Albion will instead visit FC United of Manchester next Tuesday for an FA Trophy First Qualifying Round replay.
After a 2-2 draw at Wincham Park on Saturday, the teams were due to play again at Gigg Lane this evening.
However the playing surface in Bury failed a lunchtime inspection following heavy rainfall that had left pools of standing water on parts of the pitch.
The replay takes precedence over next week’s scheduled league encounters, when coincidentally the Rebels had been due back in Northwich for a Premier Division game.
That head-to-head will now take place at a later date.
Leek Town await the victors of Tuesday’s replay in the second qualifying round on Saturday week, November 2.
If Witton lose to FC United, then they will visit Droylsden in a rearranged Northern Premier League match the same day.
