Warrington Town v Spennymoor Town
National League North
Tuesday 5th September 2023, 7.45pm
Cantilever Park

The Opposition
Warrington Town claimed their place in National League North for the first time in their history thanks to last term’s dramatic Play-Off Final win over Bamber Bridge.

The Yellows had already smashed their club record by finishing second in the Northern Premier League Premier Division which was their highest ever placing since inception in 1949.

Isaac Buckley Ricketts was the hero for Warrington, firing a late goal to see them through the victory despite the fact they had been reduced to ten men following a red card for Josh Amis.

They enjoyed a wonderful start at the higher level when they thumped Southport 4-0 on the opening day, and they have also secured eye catching wins over Buxton and Chorley.

However, they’re coming into Tuesday’s fixture with Moors keen to put an end to a run of three consecutive defeats following their 2-0 reverse at Brackley Town at the weekend.

Previous Meeting
Tuesday night’s game will be the first time the sides have met since sharing the Unibond Premier Division during the 2016/17 campaign.

Moors did the double over Warrington on that occasion, enjoying a 4-1 win at The Brewery Field in August 2016 before following that up with a 2-0 triumph at Cantilever Park the following March.

Team News
Mark Anderson is missing with an ankle injury sustained in the Bank Holiday Monday visit to Blyth Spartans, while Michael Ledger (hamstring) and Connor Shanks (back) are doubts to face Warrington.

Match Officials
Richard Eley will be on the whistle for Tuesday evening’s game at Cantilever Park, and he will be assisted by Richard Morris and Martin Beard.
