IT has been a disappointing day for the town's senior football sides.

Witton Albion, 1874 Northwich, Northwich Victoria and Barnton have all lost their matches.

Winsford United did manage to achieve a win though.

There will be no representation in the semi-finals of the Macron Cup after Vics lost 1-0 at Congleton Town, putting an end to their nine-match unbeaten run.

Ethan Hartshorn broke Vics' hearts with the only goal in the 84th minute.

Steve Wilkes' side, who had enough chances to have won the game twice over, had the ball in the net a minute before Congleton but it was struck off for offside.

The winning goal came even later as '74 lost 1-0 at Trafford in the Northern Premier League West.

They were undone by a sweet strike from Jack Sloan in the seventh minute of added time, meaning they stay seventh in the table.

Meanwhile, in the same division, Witton fell 2-1 at home to Widnes.

Albion dropped three places to 11th as a result of the defeat to the second-from-bottom side.

Widnes sealed the three points with a looping Connor McCarthy header in the 62nd minute.

It was the second time they had gone in front, with Sean Miller netting the opener in the 19th minute.

That came after Witton keeper Ollie Martin had tipped Jack Byrne's header onto the crossbar but Miller was in place to make the most of the rebound.

Over at Barton Stadium, Lionel Cotterell dribbled past a couple of Prestwich defenders before slotting in David Short for the 83rd-minute Winsford United winner in a 2-1 North West Counties League Premier Division success.

A big win for Blues, which leaves them 19th with games in hand on most clubs.

Stockport Georgians confirmed their 3-1 victory over Barnton when Paul Connor netted his second penalty in the 75th minute.

His first moved the visitors 2-0 in front but that lead was doubled moments later on the stroke of half time courtesy of Erion Bujupi.

It was three goals in nine minutes, as Adam Dahou had put Georgians ahead in the 38th minute.

There's plenty of midweek football action to come.

Winsford host Kendal Town on Monday, kick-off 8pm, and then on Tuesday 1874 entertain Kidsgrove Athletic, Witton Albion will have Newcastle Town as guests, Vics hit the road to Barnoldswick Town and Barnton visit Abby Hey.
