Key duo sign on for next season

Promotion-chasing Witton Albion have secured two of their key players for next season, whether they are in the EVO-STIK League or not.

Striker Will Jones and defender Nick Ryan have both signed extensions to their contracts until the end of the 2018-19 season following successful talks with manager Carl Macauley and the hierarchy at Wincham Park.

Ryan, who joined Witton last summer, has made 37 appearances for Albion, the tall defender notching up two goals as a threat from set-pieces while helping Macauley's EVO-STIK League Premier Division side keep 11 clean sheets in all competitions this season.

Jones has also has enjoyed a successful time at Wincham Park, scoring a healthy 21 goals in 61 appearances since arriving from EVO-STIK League North Colwyn Bay in February 2017.

Eleven of his tally have come this season, including a brace against Sutton Coldfield Town when he scored two goals in a matter of minutes before half-time at Coles Lane.

A club spokesman confirmed: "The club can announce that the pair have signed extensions on their contracts to stay at Wincham Park until the end of the 2018-19 season."
