If ever there was a game that was all about 3 points and nothing else - this was it. Sheer grit and determination got us over the line. Carlton put up a hard fight and must be wondering how they lost - on another day they could gave gone home with a point and maybe all 3. That said, this team will battle and never give in and sometimes that's what it takes and its easy to look past the speed and skill that they display with lots of goal scoring talent to boot. One cup final down. 6 more to play. Next one Thursday !! Come on boys you can do this !!!!

Couldn't make it tonight but yet another fantastic result. I can not say enough about this Witton team other than they are an absolute credit to the club and that it is a privilege to watch them. If there are any legs and energy left lets have a good crack at Spalding on Thursday. Win or lose they will give 100% there is no doubt about that, lets get behind em!

Not a classic, but 3 more points. Could have lost this game to be fair, but Witton's spirit got us through AGAIN. Did you see the player's celebrations after each goal? Incredible - much credit to the manager who gambled by resting players in view of the tough campaign we've got, and it obviously paid off. Come on Witton, we can do this, as with the team we have on and off the field, the Boat Race and the Grand National are also within our grasp. UTA

A plus that comes with the player's doing well on the pitch is that I've noticed a fair few new faces at Witton over the last half a dozen games or so and a lot of kids and teenagers, which is crucial for the future of the club.

Several from my brother's family now go regularly. We are paying the price for so many games being played on the pitch, it was very bumpy last night, the reason I felt for our struggling to put Carlton away. We rely on quick passing but that was impossible at times as the ball bobbled so much it meant it had to be controlled before it was passed. No disrespect to the groundstaff they do a great job but 3 or 4 games on it every week are making it extremely difficult for them.
I have been retired for 8 years now and I can confirm two things; You cannot work out how you found time to go to work and it is wonderful to be TOTALLY in charge of your life, with the wife's permission of course. Read me in the Our Town magazine.

A very valuable win and agree we didnt play that well, the pitch didnt seem an issue to Carlton ! I think an off night with several out of touch and it is a risk resting players as teams in this league all can have a good day, didnt see the sense in resting the keeper and it doesnt look like Will and Rob are a good pairing upfront maybe too similar, hopefully back to a full strength team on thursday and back to some real form and that bit closer to the title MOM maybe Mckenna at fullback Wilson both played well UTA
