Visitors to Winsford United’s Barton Stadium will be greeted with a new sign that tells them that the stadium is now known as “The St Luke’s Barton Stadium”.

This comes about as a result of an agreement between 1874 Northwich and one of its sponsors who is making a substantial donation towards the famous local charity.

Secretary Bob Astles said “We gave it some thought before we allowed the renaming and we approached members of the Barton family to ask their permission, the agreement is for two seasons. St Luke’s is a fine charity and we wanted to do everything possible to help them”.
