Confirms my first thought about the lad, a terrier in midfield, should help to disrupt other teams.

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.

WHEELS wrote: Bit of confusion about McKenna, he played left back on Monday night but his profile on the Bolton website says he's a forward. Andy Simpson has announced that both signings are midfielders.

Does it matter though if they fit into the team.


Back in the day he would be called a "utility man"! B) Not heard that phrase for a while as players these days seem to be a "specialist right back" or a "specialist winger" etc. Remember Mike Whitlow starting as a left back for us at the Central Ground, played him up front and he couldn't stop scoring. Anyway lets hope he's a good one wherever he plays. UTA

Don't forget, Rod his dad was a former Vics goalie (before even my time though!).
I did get dragged down to the central ground to watch on occasions when vics weren't playing as his mum also worked in the tea hut.
My granddad who brought me up was also a wittoner.
My choice was based on the fact that green had always been my favourite colour so when I reached an age to realise that Northwich actually had football teams and one played in green....well, the choice was easy.
Plus I hate Man U so could never wear a black/red/white scarf or top!!.....hell no!!

Fair enough mate. Mike was part of one of the first Witton teams I can remember watching, top player.

It is strange how we acquire our allegiances. All my Dad's family were "GREEN" but my Dad had no real interest in football so I went with my Mum and her family to the old Central Ground and became a life long Wittoner. As for being a Spurs fan, when I was about seven I got asked which big team I supported. Not wanting to pick the very top team I chose the one then in second who had a strange name and seemed to have several Welsh players. I genuinely thought they were a Welsh club until informed by my wiser friends they were from London! I wanted to change to Man City but my mates would not hear of it, once you had chosen that was it, so here I am, sixty odd years later still a Tottenham Hotspur fan but still with a soft spot for City!

Similar to WHS, I've got my dad to thank for my allegiance to our wonderful club. My dad was a Wittoner from the mid 1940s although a number of his family were greens. He started watching them after coming out of the army in 1946 I started watching in the late 60s , it was the natural thing for me to do. There have been ups & downs but I've never regretted it for a minute.

I think you have missed something Blackie, yes.. There has been a duplication of Northwich V*cs in very recent times whereas Witton Albion have been in existence as one for 125 plus years. How did you miss that?

I'm glad I've never read any of his work.
Apparently he says he's done a lot for Wilton.....explains a lot !!

I thought this thread was for transfers/signings? I came on here expecting to see half a dozen new players signed on and instead got a walk down memory lane!
