WITTON Albion head to Stalybridge Celtic on Saturday for their first game in a fortnight.

Carl Macauley's men, who were left without a fixture at the weekend when Storm Dennis put paid to their Northern Premier League trip to Matlock Town, face an eighth-placed Celtic side buoyed by a 3-1 win at Gainsborough Trinity where former Witton man Scott Bakkor was among the scorers.

Albion were due to face neighbours 1874 Northwich in the Mid-Cheshire Senior Cup semi-finals on Tuesday but that contest was called off due to the Greens having a rearranged League Cup tie at Maine Road that was postponed on Saturday.

New dates for the two fixtures will be announced in due course.

Witton have slipped to 11th place on the ladder during their period of inactivity.

Meanwhile, Albion have said goodbye to striker Michael MJ Monaghan.

He rejoined Prescot Cables at the back end of last week.

This follows Macauley losing the services of frontman Will Jones for the rest of the season with a double jaw fracture sustained in the team's 3-1 loss at Ashton United last time out on February 8.
