  • More information
    • In the 1880’s the district of Witton, situated in the mid-Cheshire salt town of Northwich, had several different teams using the name 'Witton' as a prefix. The name Witton Albion itself can be traced back to a match played on October 26th 1887. No record of any matches has been found for 1889 and as such 1890 had long been regarded as the year when the current club was actually formed.

      Albion’s first ground was adjacent to the Parish Church Vicarage. In 1897 they moved to Magdala Place near the Station Bridge. 1910 saw them move, paying the princely sum of £15 per annum, to a new ground adjacent to the Victoria Saw Mills just off Witton Street. July 1920 saw the club buy the ground outright for £750. Renamed appropriately the Central Ground, this was to be their home until 1989, when a Sainsbury’s Supermarket was developed on the site.

      The club then bought a 14 acre site off Chapel Street, Wincham and had the then very impressive Wincham Park stadium built. To secure the club’s future, much of the surrounding land was sold off, nevertheless it remains amongst the better non-league grounds in the country.
