WITTON Albion are hoping to be in action for the first time in 15 days this Saturday.

Initially scheduled to be without a game having been knocked out of the FA Trophy by Lancaster City last time out on October 26, they have brought forward a Northern Premier League visit to Mickleover Sports at the Don Amott Arena, kick-off 3pm.

And Carl Macauley’s side have another rescheduled fixture on Tuesday.

They will be heading to the the Lyme Valley Stadium to face Newcastle Town in the Integro Sport League Cup, kick-off 7.45pm.

The game had originally been scheduled earlier in the season, but the league allowed clubs instead to prepare further for FA Cup commitments.

Witton’s trip to Morpeth Town last Saturday was postponed due to a waterlogged pitch, while the previous Tuesday’s meeting with Radcliffe was called off due to their opponents’ delayed FA Trophy tie with FC United of Manchester taking priority.

* NORTHWICH Vixens’ run in the Women’s FA Cup is over.

They bowed out 7-2 at home to higher level Liverpool Marshalls Feds at the weekend.

The Vixens had enjoyed a great run, knocking out Altrincham 5-1 and Arnold Eagles 3-2 in earlier qualifying rounds after a 13-2 hammering of Bury in the preliminary round.
