In January 2007, Witton Albion winger Shaun Whalley became the most recent player to move up to the Football League when he signed for Accrington Stanley. Crewe Alexandra players Nicky Maynard and Shaun Miller have both enjoyed loan spells at Wincham Park where they gained vaulable match experience before returning to their club.

The following Football League players have all featured at Witton Albion previously; Geoff Horsfield (West Bromwich Albion, Fulham, Birmingham City), Mike Whitlow (Notts County, Leeds United, Leicester City, Bolton Wanderers, Sheffield United), Andy Oakes (Walsall, Bolton, Derby County, Port Vale, Hull City), John Doolan (Blackpool, Doncaster, Barnet, Mansfield Town).

One of non-league's top goalscorers and one time the holder of the most expensive non-league transfer fee, Carl Alford (Macclesfield Town, Kettering Town, Rushden & Diamonds, Stevenage Borough, Doncaster Rovers, Yeovil Town, Nuneaton Borough) also gave his career a massive boost when he moved on from Wincham Park having played for Albion in the Wembley F.A. Trophy Final.

Some previous players since the mid 1960's include Chris Nicholl (Aston Villa, Southampton, Northern Ireland), Peter Mellor (Burnley, Fulham - their goalkeeper in the FA Cup Final), Neil Parsley (Huddersfield, West Brom), Peter Henderson (Chester, Gillingham), Mark McCarrick (Birmingham, Tranmere), Phil Power (Crewe, Macclesfield), Dave Carrick (Preston, Port Vale, Wrexham), Mark Leonard (Everton, Stockport, Wigan, Rochdale, Crewe) and Grenville Millington (Chester, Wales)

Locally born and bred midfield player, Colin Rose won caps in 1996 when called into the England semi-pro International squad whilst Andy Lee, John Davison and David Constantine retained their places in the England team, after moving to Witton from their previous clubs.

In no particular order other familiar names to appear in Albion's colours, over the past twenty years, have included Nigel Gleghorn (Ipswich, Man City, Stoke, Birmingham), Kevin Langley (Everton, Wigan), Ray Wallace (Southampton, Leeds Utd.), Ray Ranson (Man City, Everton, Newcastle), John Burridge, Arthur Albiston (Man Utd), Nicky Reid (Man City, West Brom.), Tony Henry (Man City), Neil McNab (Tottenham, Bolton, Man City), Billy Garton (Man Utd), Scott McGarvey (Man Utd), Mark Lillis (Aston Villa, Man City), Brendan Batson (Arsenal, Cambridge, West Brom), Frank Carrodus (Man City, Aston Villa), Drew Brand (Everton). Ken Barnes (Man City), ex Busby Babe Denis Violett and England and Lancashire fast bowler Ken Higgs are amongst others that appeared further back in time.
