Witton's U21's travel to Sandbach United on Wednesday night in a friendly fixture. The two sides locked horns two weeks ago in a friendly which ended in a very creditable 2-2 draw against a very strong Sandbach United side. Witton have continued their good recent form in the league by beating Broadheath Central away from home at the weekend and climbing the North West U21's Development League Premier Division table in the process. Tonight's game gives Witton the opportunity to have a look at some fringe players as well as some newcomers, with the view to making the squad even stronger and more competitive in the future. Results become secondary but the experience that can be gained and hopefully build things in seasons to come. Kick off at Sandbach Community Football Centre is 7.45pm.

A young and inexperienced Witton side which included a number of trialists, gave a very impressive performance as they came from 2-0 down at the break in the second friendly at Sandbach Community Football Centre on Wednesday night.
Despite conceding twice in the first half, Witton created a number of chances but weren't able to break through. The second half saw Witton create further chances but this time they were able to convert two of them.
First Team squad player Jack Egan netted twice to give the team a very impressive result from a performance which deserved so much more.
