Witton make the long trip up the M6 on Saturday when they travel to Workington AFC in an Evo-Stik Premier Division fixture. The Cumbrians have struggled for consistency so far this season and find themselves in 20th position in the table. Their home form has been steady with two wins and two draws but it has been away from Borough Park, where they have found difficulty and that is one of the main reasons they find themselves so low in the division. The Reds four league defeats have all been on the road and that is probably the reason for their current predicament. Witton have also struggled on the road this season having only picked up points at Whitby Town and North Ferriby United but they look to bounce back from Tuesday's home defeat to Mickleover Sports. Workington is never an easy place to visit and Witton will be hoping to come away with a better result than their last visit, which saw their FA Trophy campaign last season end at the very first hurdle. The home side will also be looking to get back to winning ways, following the disappointment of bowing out of the Emirates FA Challenge Cup at Kidsgrove Athletic in midweek, following a goalless draw in Cumbria last weekend. Kick off at Borough Park is 3pm.
Directions: Leave the M6 at Junction 40 and take the A66 towards Workington. On reaching Workington Town Centre you will come to a T-Junction, where you need to turn right towards Maryport (A596). At the second roundabout, take the 3rd exit (so that you are almost coming back on yourself) onto the A597 (signposted Town Centre & Station). Continue past the Rugby Stadium on the right. Further on you will come to a Tesco’s superstore on your right and the Borough Park entrance is opposite. (Total Distance - 150 miles).
Parking: There is some car parking available at the ground which is free. Otherwise there is some street parking in the nearby vicinity. There is the Tesco's store located opposite to the ground but I am unaware if there are parking restrictions in force so please check before parking there.
Admission Prices: Adults £10, Concessions £5, 12-17 year olds £1, Under 12's Free if accompanied by a paying adult. Reduced admission as part of "NON LEAGUE DAY 2018."
Hopefully we can kick start our league campaign by getting a result here. A difficult game, but this team is more than capable of getting a result. On reflection we should be higher up the league but we have failed to win games that we have dominated. Let's put that right in this game. UTA
