Award-winning keeper Hall returns

By David Watters

Former Glossop North End, Maine Road, Radcliffe and Trafford keeper Greg Hall is back in the EVO-STIK League with Witton Albion.

The experienced stopper, pictured, left Northwich 1874 over the weekend to join Carl Macauley's EVO-STIK League Premier Division squad after collecting the North West Counties Football League's Goalkeeper of the Year accolade in May.

The 32-year-old, who collected the award twice while at Glossop North End, played in the Hillmen side that narrowly lost to South Shields in the 2015 FA Vase Final in front of nearly 10,000 fans at Wembley.

Since joining 1874 Northwich in December 2015, Hall has made more over 140 appearances for the club and was instrumental in the club reaching the semi-final of the Buldbase FA Vase last season. Hall is expected to make his debut next week when Macauley's side kick off their pre-season programme with a friendly at home to Southport on Tuesday 17 July.

* Worthingtons Transport Limited are the club’s official first team sponsor for the upcoming 2018-19 season. Unveiled at Wincham Park last week, the sponsors are specialists in motor vehicle transportation, operating a fleet of multi-vehicle transporters nationwide from their base in South Cheshire.

Witton Albion’s commercial director Alan Sneddon said: "We’re delighted to welcome Worthingtons as a main club sponsor and thank them for their great support."
