Wincham Park will shortly host an international Match. As part of the 2018 U17s tournament, we will play host to USA U17s v Russia U18s on Tuesday 16th October 2018. 7pm KO. The game is being played after discussions with the FA over the last month. Witton Albion Chairman John Salmon said “We are delighted to be staging a game of this stature at the stadium. It is a testament to the quality of our facility and playing surface that we are able to do so! Witton Albion is a centre for football of a very high quality in the area. We will be linking with Witton Albion Juniors, together with local schools and clubs to make this a truly memorable experience for all.” He went on to add tongue in cheek that “It might also be an opportunity for a summit between leaders of World Superpowers although neither The White House nor The Kremlin have contacted us as yet!”

As the top-ranked team in UEFA’s coefficient, England have received a bye into the elite qualifying round of the 2019 Euros, with those matches taking place in March.

Cooper said: “This will be the first time this group will have played for us in England outside of St. George’s Park, and that stadium environment is so important in their long-term development and experiencing playing in front of big crowds.

“We’ve worked hard over the past five years or so to develop a demanding and thoughtful games programme for this age group and we’ve secured some tough opposition for this tournament. We have two teams from outside Europe in Brazil and USA, which is a good opportunity to test ourselves against different styles of play, while Russia will be bringing an U18 side which will be a challenge for us too.

“We’re proud to be playing in different stadiums in the country and showing supporters what this team is about. We had some excellent crowds when we hosted last summer’s Euros and I really hope supporters come out to these games as it’s such a boost for the players and really helps benefit their development.”
