Carl Macauley claimed Witton Albion’s stunning victory on New Year’s Day is one of his favourite moments as a manager.

His side came from behind twice to beat Northern Premier League leaders Altrincham on their own pitch, and with it ended the Robins’ 16-match unbeaten run in the Premier Division.

“It’s definitely up there with my biggest highs,” said Macauley, back on the touchline after missing the past two games through illness. “Of course it’s our best result of this season when you consider the circumstances.

“We had four lads out injured and another who couldn’t play, and within the team I had to change players’ positions as well as in terms of personnel. But we got it right didn’t we?

“I’m so glad we got something from the game after going 3-2 down because we deserved it, and I hope they acknowledge that too. We’ve come here and scored four times against the best team in the league, remember.”
