Witton's Academy team begin their ESPFA National Cup campaign on Thursday afternoon, when they welcome Runcorn Linnets in a Northern Group fixture.
Albion have found the season difficult league-wise having picked up only two points so far, and face a Runcorn Linnets side full of confidence following their tremendous unbeaten start to the season.
The competition gives Witton the chance to progress further as the first phase is played in a group system where teams play each other within their section so, teams are not eliminated after one game as positions are decided on a points basis and then progressing to a Knockout stage later in the competition.
The lads will be looking to getting off to a good start as they put their league problems behind them.
Kick off at Sandbach Community Football Centre is 12pm.
