WHEELS created the topic: Shaw Lane AFC vs Witton Albion.
Witton travel to South Yorkshire on Saturday as they take on Shaw Lane AFC in an Evo-Stik Premier Division fixture. The Ducks are going well and currently occupy third place in the table just three points behind leaders Altrincham. Last season saw them clinch the Evo-Stik Division One South title although Albion ran them very close, before gaining promotion through the Play Offs. This season has seen changes both on and off the field with them re locating to groundshare with neighbours Athersley Recreation. The other change saw manager Craig Elliott depart to take over at Vanarama League North side Boston United but, they have managed to keep the majority of last season's title-winning squad together with a couple of additions. The Ducks made a slow start to their league campaign in the Premier Division but after a consistent run of form are now challenging for honours. Witton performed well against their hosts last season, winning the home game and losing the return fixture towards the latter end of the season when they almost caught them. Kick off at Sheerien Park is 3pm.

Subject to the pitch inspection, I will be driving to the game tomorrow, leaving about midday. I have no passengers, so if anybody wants a lift, pm me on here. (I can fit in about 3 big people, or 4 medium people besides myself). I would go on the coach, but I am not a good coach traveler, especially when it is across country.

Any official news? According to the Evostik website, although 6 games in our league have been called off, we are still on?
