FROM THE CHAIRMAN
Witton Albion is run by volunteers for the local community. We are constantly striving to improve our performance on and off the field through community activities and by encouraging local people to get out and about on match days and come visit us. You’ll find Witton Albion a safe and family-friendly environment for the kids; a decent standard of competitive football and a great value afternoon (or evening) out. Go on, what are you waiting for?
Mark Harris, chairman chairman@wittonalbion.com
THE MANAGER SAYS
The players and coaching staff are all really looking forward to the new season. Our team will be pitting itself against some really good sides in a very competitive league, but despite being the new boys on the block we aim to give it a real go. Having won promotion last year we’ve all had a taste of success, and we’re hungry for more. With your support we might just do it.
Carl Macaulay, manager
