Witton welcome Grantham Town to The NetDec Stadium on Saturday afternoon in an Evo-Stik Premier Division fixture. The Gingerbreads have enjoyed an excellent start to the season so far and currently sit in third place in the table, only three points behind leaders Altrincham. Their early season form is progress from the steady campaign they had last season, finishing eighth in the league and also reaching the final of the Integro League Cup where they were beaten by Bamber Bridge at Leek Town's Harrison Park Stadium. Witton go into the fixture unbeaten in five games in all competitions so will be in positive mood and confident of continuing their good form whilst the visitors will be looking to keep up their great start. Following the transfer of James Walshaw from Farsley Celtic to Scarborough Athletic recently, Grantham now possess the leading marksman in the Premier Division in Lee Shaw, who has found the net nineteen times already this term so Witton will need to keep a close watch on him but then, it isn't all about one player. Witton will also be looking to move closer to those Play off places, a gap which currently stands at four points. A tough encounter is to be expected. Kick off at The NetDec Stadium is 3pm.
Parking: The Car Park is past the Social Club on the right.
Admission Prices: Adults £10, Concessions £7, Under 18's £3 (Free with Membership Card). H.M. Forces Personnel Admitted Free.
Matchday Programme: £2.
Social Club: The Social Club is open from 1pm.
Social Club Access: Before the game, the Social Club is accessible by way of the main entrance ONLY. From half time onwards the Social Club is accessible from inside the stadium via a passageway within the main stand. Alcohol is permitted inside the stadium but MUST be in a plastic beaker.
Refreshments: Food is available from inside the Social Club before & after the game. The Tea Bar is also open during the game inside the stadium.
Please note: As the Social Club is now a full-time food preparation area, dogs are not permitted inside the building - with the exception of assistance dogs (hearing & visually impaired).
Additional Information: We have decided to continue the bus service until such time that it’s not feasible any more. However, there will be a very small charge from now on. Kids still travel for free, Pensioners pay £1 return, and Adults £2 return. Cloakroom tickets will be handed out to be surrendered to the driver on the return journey. Single fares will be charged the same as return. The only other change will be the last bus will leave Witton Chimes at about 2.15 pm, not 2.45 as previous. The pick up/drop off points remain the same - Brio Leisure Centre & Witton Chimes. We are sincerely hoping the service will increase numbers using it, particularly new supporters. We are aware that quite a few of the fans using the service would be going anyway, but it is a gesture of goodwill from the club to main core supporters who we value highly. The fees are a contribution towards the costs we incur for the bus.

We will have a "Guest of Honour" for Saturday's game. 17 year old Witton Albion Academy Goalkeeper Josh Tyler-Williams, will be in attendance with his parents and they are all very welcome.
Josh suffered a very serious back injury a few weeks ago during the Academy's home fixture with Matlock Town which led to the game being abandoned. Delighted to say that Josh is now on the road to recovery and I'm sure we are all delighted to see him.

Glad to hear that Josh is on the mend and hope he is soon fit to play again.
This is a big game for us, as Grantham are doing well, so come on all you Witton fans get to the game on Saturday and cheer the team on. We have a very good chance of getting into the play offs, now surely that is something to shout about. UTA

Doubt I can make it. Good luck lads.
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.
