Yellows continue preparations with draw at Ashton Town Yellows continue preparations with draw at Ashton Town

WITH three weeks to go until the new season gets underway, Warrington Town were held to a 1-1 draw at Ashton Town on Saturday.

The Yellows open up the new Evo-Stik Premier League season with a home game against Farsley Celtic on August 18 and there’s work to do before then.

Manager Paul Carden has used the pre-season friendlies to look at several potential new signings as he looks to re-build a squad that has been hit by player departures to a higher level.

Five trialists were named in the starting line-up against the North West Counties League side, and the Yellows fell behind inside five minutes to a Brad Smart penalty.

Striker Tony Gray equalised for Warrington in the second half, but later missed a penalty that would have won the game.

The scheduled friendly against Bangor City on Tuesday night has been postponed.
