NORTHWICH Victoria’s trip to Crewe Alexandra to play a Cheshire FA Senior Cup tie will go ahead after the pitch passed an inspection this afternoon.

However the contest will kick off earlier, now starting at 7.15pm.

Volunteers have spent most of the day helping ground staff at Gresty Road to clear snow from the playing surface, with much still to be moved even after a lunchtime check by the referee.

The League One club, bossed by former Vics manager Steve Davis, has confirmed that adults will pay £5 to watch the action.

Concessions pay £1.

Northwich, then with Andy Preece in charge, won 2-1 against Crewe at the same stage of the competition last season.

Fantastic win tonight for vics. Crewe had a few in the team who have played in the first team this season like leitch-smith, clayton and a few others. Keep believing nvfc, fingers crossed we draw witton in the next round. Thats 4 wins out of 5 in 2013 and scott harries has scored in each of those games.
