The original question was about what his first game was.

Mike joined from macc debuted 17/11/84 at Hyde. He replaced Ian senior and went on to make 99 appearances, 26 clean sheets before going to congleton after his final match at home to Caernarfon 28/10/86.

He had NPL X1 representative honours and was succeeded by Steve skupski who had played a few times previously most notably the lancs floodlit final win at preston
on pens v Chorley.

Fantastic stuff, thanks very much Phil. Going on this information my first game must have been during November/December 1984 or in 1985 before the end of that season. I shall raid the museum at the next home game to see if there are any programmes knocking about from that period.

I remember Steve Skupski and went to the Lancs floodlit final at Preston, I do have a picture somewhere of the team holding the trophy aloft. If I remember correctly Malcom "Waggy" Wagstaff was the star man on the night. What a good player he was too.

Thanks again mate and see you soon! UTA

Yes, he scored seven when we beat Radcliffe 11 - 0 at the Central Ground. Think that ws the same season that we beat Nantwich, above us in the table at the time, 9 - 1 at home.

Before I got involved with Witton, I spent 7 years helping run Sunday football teams. I was lucky enough to see one of the teams reach the Cheshire Suday Cup Final on a couple of occasions,but the one team that stopped us winning it, was a team from Birkenhead called "Avenue" or "Avenue Victoria Lodge". They had a keeper called Skupski, better known as "Spitter Skupski". Was he the same player?

Try the library, they have the Guardian and Chronicle all on microfilm, easy enough to use and a librarian will help if you ask.

Jeff, the Steve Skupski who played in the Cheshire Sunday Cup wining sides was definitely the same one who played for us. One of the finals he played in was at the Drill Field and he scored one of the goals Pat Jennings style. Not sure if that was against your team.

Me first game was Witton v Wellington Town March 8th 1958. We won 1 nil with a goal from Len Stephenson. Len was understudy to Stan Matthews at Blackpool then went on to Port Vale then Oldham then us.Blimey I feel old now!!
I've gotta say that one of the reasons for my longivity in supporting the Albs is people like Chad (fabulous bloke worked in IT with himin the early 70's as well as being in the witton choir in the 60's), Eric Finnegan, Pete Robinson, Tony Dean, Fred Spruce, Alan Spruce and countless others as well as those no longer with us sadly, people like "Sir" Thomas Stelfox, Samuel Powell, Little Sammie with that smile, Mr Colin Cooperman (he'd have an argument with a fly crawling up a wall), all legends as far as I'm concerned plus countless others. This is what makes our club so great!! UTA
