Cheshire West and Chester Council and Northwich Town Council invites Witton Albion to civic reception
A PARTY to celebrate Witton’s promotion back to the Evo-Stik Northern Premier League’s top tier will take place next month.
Cheshire West and Chester Council (CWAC) and Northwich Town Council are joint hosts of a civic reception to congratulate the club for its achievement last season.
Albion players and officials have been invited to the town’s memorial hall on Sunday, August 12 from midday.
“Witton have brought great credit to the borough with their success and both councils want to honour that,” said CWAC leader Clr Mike Jones.
“We’d love as many fans as possible to turn up to greet the team as it arrives.”
Brian Pritchard’s team defeated Curzon Ashton in a promotion play-offs final in April to make certain a return to the Northern Premier League’s top flight after a three-years absence.
It also marks the first time in the club’s history that it will play at a higher level in the football pyramid than neighbours Northwich Victoria.
Organisers estimate around 100 guests will attend, including Northwich mayor Clr George Mainwaring and CWAC chairman Clr Pam Booher, from Winsford.
Comedian John Bishop, one of Albion’s most famous former players, has also been invited.
