Witton'sYouth team travel to third-placed Stockport Georgians AFC in a North West Youth Alliance fixture on Sunday afternoon in the first of back to back games against the Woodsmoor club. Witton have beaten Georgians already this season on the way to the Semi Finals of the President's Cup but, their league form has suffered in recent weeks losing each of their last three North West Youth Alliance games amidst a winless run which stretches to five matches in all competitions. They will be looking to halt a poor run as the season draws to a close but they face a difficult test at a team who are in form. Kick off at Cromley Road is 2.30pm.

In-form Stockport Georgians climbed to second in the North West Youth Alliance with a clinical display of finishing at Cromley Road on Sunday afternoon.
The result stretches Witton's run without a win to six games and their fifth consecutive defeat, a run that has seen them leak 24 goals.
The season has been a great learning experience for the team and generally, they have performed very well also reaching two Semi Finals in the process. The closing weeks of the campaign have proved disappointing but they will gain more experience from the games and learn from them in the long run.
Next up for the Youth team is a return meeting with Stockport Georgians at Moss Farm in two weeks time.
