WITTON Albion have confirmed a fifth pre-season friendly in preparation for their 2021-22 campaign.

Carl Macauley's side will welcome the newly-formed Macclesfield FC to Wincham Park on Tuesday, July 6, for a 7.45pm kick off.

Macclesfield Town visited Albion for a friendly last September in what turned out to be their last ever game as they went out of business the following day.

The Silkmen reformed shortly afterwards and will enter the North West Counties League Premier Division in the coming season.

Albion had already confirmed pre-season friendlies against Northwich Victoria, Marine, Crewe Alexandra and Runcorn Linnets.

Their Northern Premier League Premier Division campaign is due to get underway on Saturday, August 14.
