Witton's Youth team are at home to Colne FC in a North West Youth Alliance fixture on Sunday afternoon. The youngsters are in good form at the present time, and go into the game on the back of an excellent performance and result at leaders Tranmere Rovers last weekend. The current unbeaten run stretches back over four games in all competitions and depending on other results this weekend, they could find themselves in the top five in the table by the end of the afternoon. Colne sit just below Witton in the league table going into the game but level on points with their hosts so, a difficult game is in prospect. Confidence will be high after such an impressive result last time out but, they will be wary of their opponents and won't be taking them lightly. Please note: the game has been moved onto the 3G pitch at Moss Farm and the kick off has been put back to 3pm and NOT 2pm as originally stated.
Witton's Youth team continued their impressive run on Sunday afternoon beating Colne FC on the 3G at Moss Farm.
Albion led 1-0 at the break, Ellis Carter giving them the lead courtesy of Robbie Hatton 's assist. Witton added further goals in the second half, Carter grabbed his second of the afternoon and Robbie Hatton converted from the spot before the visitors netted a late consolation.
The victory sees the lads climb to fifth in the table on 16 points, one point behind fourth-placed Morecambe who were surprisingly beaten at home by bottom-club AFC Darwen. Witton also have two games in hand.
