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 firstname.lastname@example.org, via their online reporting form on their website, or via freephone on 0800 169 9414.
It was honours even for Wythenshawe Town today when they visited Vauxhall Motors and Amateurs suffered an away defeat to Stone Old Alleynians.
Six minutes of injury time was Town’s undoing as they led 1-0 until an unfortunate own goal in the dying minutes of the game.
Stone led from a penalty in the first before extending their lead and Amateurs snatched one back. Despite some valiant efforts including an attempt which struck the woodwork, Stone managed to hold on to their lead to take the points.
