FOOTBALL: Wythenshawe Town 0 – 1 Wythenshawe Amateurs

untitledWythenshawe Town suffered their first defeat in nine games as their derby day rivals, Wythenshawe Amateurs claimed the bragging rights thanks to a goal from David Wright.

Wright scored after 20 minutes to put the visitors in front. It means the two clubs have swapped places in the league, with Ammies now in third place and Town in fifth.

The fixture, which saw a record crowd at Ericstan Park, was dedicated to anti-racist charity, Kick It Out.

Wythenshawe Town now meet Abbey Hulton for their final game of the season and Amateurs take on Barnton at home. It’s still possible for both Wythenshawe clubs to finish in the top four.

See the Wythenshawe Town website  for details of how the derby unfolded.

Wythenshawe derby dedicated to fight against racism

It’s the Wythenshawe derby today and the clubs are dedicating the fixture to the anti-racist charity, Kick it Out.

Wythenshawe Town’s manager was suspended recently after leading his players off the field in protest at racist abuse at a match in January.

The Town manager, James Kinsey, was backed by Wythenshawe MP, Mike Kane, who raised the issue in Parliament.

And there is everything to play for as well as local pride. Wythenshawe Town are currently in third place in the league, with Wythenshawe Amateurs just one point behind in fifth.

This season marks the 25-year anniversary of Kick It Out.

On its website, Wythenshawe Town said: “Having started as ‘Let’s Kick Racism Out of Football’ in 1993, Kick It Out has evolved into an organisation which – working alongside its partners The FA, the PremierLeague, the English Football League, The Professional Footballers’ Association, the League Managers Association and the Football Supporters’ Federation, among others – fights ALL forms of discrimination in the game we love.

In the 2018/19 season and beyond, we want everyone involved in football to continue to campaign for equality and challenge discrimination, while playing a part in shaping a fair and inclusive future for everyone who loves the game.

You can report discrimination to Kick It Out via their app, via email on, via their online reporting form on their website, or via freephone on 0800 169 9414.
