A FANTASTIC performance from Whitby Town on Saturday saw them climb out of the relegation zone with a 2-1 win over title contenders Northwich Victoria.

Tom Portas put the Blues ahead and although the Cheshire side levelled controversially, they also had a man send off before Jeff Smith netted Whitby’s winner.

Town now take on FC United of Manchester at home on Wednesday night, 7.45pm kick-off.
