Let there be no doubt now, who has the best team in Mid-Cheshire. A few misguided souls across the borough are trying to lay claim to that title for other teams. They are well and truly mistaken. The best team is resident at Wincham Park, plays in RED and is named WITTON ALBION. For those who have any doubts look at the prospective league tables for next season :-)

I have to say I didn't enjoy the game one bit as I was a nervous wreck !! But oh boy, did that final whistle sound sweet !! On the first day of this season I knew we had a team - and how they proved it. Superb season long effort from everyone associated with the club has culminated in us going up. I am so proud of OUR club. Every man jack. I know some of this team will move on, but I hope that they all remember this moment as much as we have. Fantastic day to be part of it all !!!!!!!!!!!

From R&D... . AFC Rushden & Diamonds were narrowly defeated at Witton in the Northern Premier First Division South play-off semi-final on Tuesday evening. The first half was largely tense and nervy, understandable in a play-off game, with both sides limiting each other in terms of concerted possession, momentum and clear-cut opportunities. A loose ball almost dropped for Diamonds top-scorer Nabil Shariff in the area before the keeper was able to collect, and for the hosts midfielder Will James saw a shot go harmlessly wide of the post. Rushden in particular were pressuring the Witton men quickly in the defensive and midfield areas, and they looked pretty comfortable for the opening 35 minutes without creating too much as an attacking force themselves. However, Albion upped the pressure in the final 10 minutes of the half and went close to scoring on a number of occasions. Firstly Anthony Brown hit a looped effort that forced Matt Finlay to tip over the bar, and then Thomas Owens curled a left-footed effort well over the top. Moments later a cross from the right found Owens in space in the area, but his downward header towards the corner of the net was superbly palmed away by Finlay. Seconds afterwards a cross from the left found Bradley Bauress to half-volley towards goal, and Finlay reacted brilliantly to tip the ball up and onto the crossbar before the danger was eventually cleared away. The half-time whistle was blown shortly later, with the late pressure on the Diamonds goal alleviated by the half-time break and all still to play for in the second period. Ross Oulton was introduced at half-time in place of Ollie Brown-Hill, and the early exchanges of the half were very similar to those of the first half with both teams still searching for the all-important opening goal. Diamonds had a bit of pressure as Shariff shot wide and a couple of long-throw opportunities caused some danger, but it was the hosts who broke the deadlock in the 54th minute. A long ball over the top by full-back Anthony Gardner found striker Rob Hopley running in behind, and he beat Finlay to the ball to flick it past the keeper and into the back of the net. Though it was understandably a big setback to Diamonds’ game-plan, there still remained a lot of time to get back into the tie, and Farrell soon saw a shot parried after he had found room on the edge of the box. Rushden were dealt another setback shortly afterwards, though, as they were reduced to ten men. Midfielder Dan Quigely dived into a midfield challenge with Steve Tames as he attempted to win the ball back, but his feet left the ground. The referee, therefore, subsequently blew and issued a red card to the Diamonds man. To their enormous credit this didn’t seem to affect the visitors much, and they went on to control much of the late possession and territory as they strove for an equaliser. They had to ride their luck as a free header at the back post went wide of the mark for the hosts, defender Callum Westwood cleared an effort off the line and Will Jones had a header straight at Finlay, but Diamonds gave everything up the other end. Their best chance came when substitute Jack Bowen glanced a header wide from a Sam Brown cross, and despite Lorraine hitting a shot wide and Brown seeing a last-gasp effort fly over the crossbar, Witton defended stoically and were able to see out the game. They will go on to face Saplding United in the final on Saturday, and Rushden’s promotion hopes are ended. Diamonds, however, can hold their heads up immensley high after a performance of true heart, spirit and courage, with a never-say-die attitude on show throughout
