Andy White becomes Yellows’ latest summer signing

Warrington Town are pleased to confirm the signing of Altrincham full-back Andy White. 

The 29-year-old made 16 appearances for the club last season as they secured a mid-table finish in the Vanarama National League. 

He spent time on loan at FC United of Manchester during the 2021/22 season before returning to the Robins shortly after the New Year.

White also lists Crewe Alexandra, Nantwich Town and Southport among his previous clubs.

His arrival at Cantilever Park provides added depth and competition in the full-back areas, with fellow left-back Eddie Clarke set for a spell on the sidelines due to injury and Mitch Duggan serving a suspension at the start of the new season.

“I was impressed with the manager and knew that Warrington have come close to promotion a few times in recent years, so we should be competing this season,” he said.

“I’ve played with a few of the players for multiple seasons at my previous club and we know each other’s games very well.

“Supporters can expect a player who will always give 100%. I take pride in my defensive duties but also try to chip in with a few goals and assists.

“With the quality and experience in our squad I hope to be challenging at the top end of the table, and I’m very excited for the challenge.”

White becomes the club’s fourth new signing of the summer, with goalkeeper Tony Thompson, defender Tom Hannigan and attacking midfielder Oliver Putnam joining ahead of the 2022/23 Pitching In Northern Premier League season.

Winger Isaac Buckley-Ricketts also completed a permanent move to the club last week following a successful loan spell at the end of the 2021/22 campaign.

On White’s arrival, manager Mark Beesley said: “Andy is another excellent signing for us. He’s a player with pedigree of winning this league and having success in the league above.

“He’s an outstanding defender on both sides and can play at right-back or left-back. He’s got a great use of the ball, he’s played in a great footballing team for years and it was a no-brainer.

“Taking advantage of Altrincham going full time and knowing that Andy possibly couldn’t, we made him a key target and to get him through the door is a massive bonus. He’s going to be excellent for us.”
