WITTON have been handed a home draw in the FA Cup as they bid to match their best run in the competition for two decades.

Albion’s reward for dumping out higher-ranked Cheshire neighbours Altrincham at the weekend is a third qualifying round tie against Durham-based Spennymoor Town.

They visit Northwich on Saturday, October 15, kick off 3pm.

However manager Brian Pritchard will take note that the Northern League outfit, who play at a lower level than his team, also defeated a side ranked two tiers above them – Evo-Stik NPL Premier Division club Ashton United – on Saturday.

Albion last won four successive matches in the FA Cup in 1990, a sequence that was rewarded with a televised home tie against Bolton Wanderers in the first round.
