Game moved to the Halton Stadium with a 2pm kickoff.
Given the unprecedented bad weather of the last two months a decision has been made to move our next home game against Formby in the Cup on the 22nd February to the WIDNES SELECT SECURITY STADIUM with an earlier kick off time of 2pm.
Formby FC and the North West Counties Football League have readily agreed to this proposal.
The reasons for moving the venue is three-fold:
1. To give the team guaranteed game time in the lead up to the final two months of the season when we have to play at least a further twelve matches as we push for promotion.
2. To give our supporters a guaranteed opportunity to see their team play a “home” game at a venue that is at a reasonable distance from Northwich.
3. To give the Barton Stadium pitch sufficient time to recover from the recent wet weather before some twenty games will be played on it in the final two months of the season.
Further details will be published on our website regarding travel arrangements for supporters and I would like to apologise for any inconvenience that the decision to move the fixture may cause.
