WITTON Albion have achieved their first win under new manager Jon Macken.

They knocked lower-level Tividale out of the FA Cup 4-1 at the U Lock It Stadium to progress to the first qualifying round.

Joe Duckworth bagged a brace of goals for Albion, who were 3-0 ahead inside 32 minutes in front of 303 fans.

Duckworth netted the opener in the 12th minute, Taylor Kennerley made it 2-0 seven minutes later and then Jack Tinning claimed the third against the Midland League Premier Division outfit.

Malcolm Melvin pulled a goal back for Tividale after 72 minutes but almost immediately Duckworth completed his brace and the afternoon's scoring.

Witton were due to travel to Bootle on Tuesday but the Bucks drew 0-0 at Congleton Town in their FA Cup tie so the replay takes priority and Albion's visit will have to be rescheduled.

It is a similar situation for 1874 Northwich, who were not in action today.

Their Tuesday opponents in Northern Premier League West, City of Liverpool, drew with Ramsbottom United in the FA Cup and therefore will be involved in a replay instead.

Meanwhile, Barnton collected their first win of the new season 2-1 at home to Cammell Laird 1907.

Joseph Levey found the target twice in the first half of Saturday's North West Counties Division One South encounter, while Ben Wood halved the deficit in the 55th minute.
