WITTON Albion recorded their best win yet with Brian Pritchard as manager as they dumped higher-ranked neighbours Altrincham out of the FA Cup on Saturday.

Top scorer Alex Titchiner and substitute Mark Buchan were on target for the visitors, ranked 42 places below the Robins, in the second qualifying clash at Moss Lane.

It marks the first time in a decade that Witton have won three successive matches in the competition.

Their victory was a worthy one too.

Titchiner wriggled past Mark Lees to fire the underdogs in front on the quarter hour before Buchan added gloss when he raced on to Josh Hancock’s assist to add a second goal with three minutes left.

Alty, who twice had goals ruled out for offside, have now failed to score an FA Cup goal in each of the past three seasons.

Happy Witton bank £4,500 as a reward for their success – their fifth in a row in all competitions – to take their earnings for the season to £9,000.

They learn their fate in the draw on Monday.
