Witton travel to Stalybridge Celtic on Thursday night in a re arranged Evo-Stik Premier Division fixture and their final away game of the season. The original fixture fell victim to the weather a few weeks ago. Following their relegation from the Vanarama League North, Stalybridge found themselves in a rather precarious position for a while but have shown a big improvement over recent weeks as they have managed to climb away from the foot of the table, helped by some excellent results and particularly against some of the top teams in the league. The club have surprised some people this week by announcing that manager Steve Burr will depart Bower Fold after the club's final league game on Saturday. The fact the team have shown such an improvement makes the decision even more surprising. With the play offs now finally out of reach for Witton, they will be looking to finish the season in a positive way and then hopefully build on this season when the new campaign begins in August. Kick off at Bower Fold is 7.45pm.
Directions: From M60. Leave the M60 at junction 24 (M67, Denton). At the roundabout join the M67. Stay on the M67 to the end, Junction 4. At the roundabout, take the 1st exit onto the A57 (Hyde Road).
After 0.5 miles you come to a set of traffic lights (signposted Stalybridge). Turn left onto B6174 (Stalybridge Road). Almost immediately, you come to a mini roundabout.
