Witton Albion F.C. are a football club based in Northwich, England. They were founded in 1887. They have won the Cheshire Senior Cup 11 times since 1902. Their most recent success in this competition was in 2006, when they defeated Stalybridge Celtic in the final. They have also reached the FA Cup Second Round on at least three occasions. The club will play in the Northern Premier League Division One North (eighth tier of the English football league system) in the 2015–16 season.

The club's ground was for many years in the centre of the town, just behind the library. In 1989, they moved a couple of miles to Chapel Street in nearby Wincham. Sainsbury's Supermarket now occupies the old Central Ground site.

Witton's current home, Wincham Park, holds in excess of 4,500 and is equipped with floodlights, segregation, a club shop and a museum.

There used to be a fierce local rivalry with Northwich Victoria.

Stadium or Home

Wincham Park is a football stadium in Wincham, a parish on the edge of Northwich, England. The home ground of Witton Albion, it first opened in 1989, after the club left their former Central Ground. Capacity is 2,300, with 600 covered seats on the north side of the stadium. The other three sides of the ground are all standing: the Lostock End, Wincham End, and Popular Side. The ground also boasts excellent facilities for the level Witton currently play at.

Wincham Park has not changed much since its construction although cover was added at both ends of the stadium in 1990. The floodlights were replaced in 2010 after supporters walked to nearby Runcorn to raise the funds.

The stadium has had a number of names due to sponsorship deals; these include Britannia Carpets Stadium, Bargain Booze Stadium and its current name, The Help For Heroes Stadium.

Another name of Wincham Park (Sports Direct Arena) was spoken about on the popular BBC1 TV show Room 101 hosted by Frank Skinner.

Local rivals Northwich Victoria and Runcorn Linnets have ground-shared at Wincham Park.

Northwich Victoria and Witton Albion shared Wincham Park whilst both clubs played in the Evo-Stik League First Division North.
