Preview: Warrington Town

Our visitors today, Warrington Town, won the Premier Divison play-offs last season but due to ongoing league restructuring, The Yellows then had the obstacle of a "Super Play-Off" against King’s Lynn Town to contest. Falling at the final hurdle to be denied a place in the National League North in front of over 2000 supporters at Cantilever Park. In November 2014, Warrington Town put themselves on the football map when Shaun Reid led his side to FA Cup victory over Football League side Exeter City, live on BBC2! The game sold out in 3 hours and marked the return of live FA Cup football to the BBC after a six year absence. Manager Paul Carden has strengthened his squad further over the summer, their most recent signing is former Collieries loannee Matty Chadwick, who was playing in the National League North with Altrincham last season. Possibly surprisingly, the Yellows started their campaign off with a 3-1 home defeat at the hands of fellow newcomers Morpeth Town on Saturday, skipper Mark Roberts grabbing their goal. For Colls, young Brad Lynch made a massive impact on Saturday, coming off the bench, and he’ll be pushing for a starting position. Whether manager Micheal Clegg opts to stick with a 5 man defence or utilise an extra attacking player from the start is the big question!
