Experienced defender Tom Hannigan joins

Warrington Town are pleased to announce the capture of experienced centre-back Tom Hannigan.

The 33-year-old has spent several seasons at Vanarama National League side Altrincham, where he made well in excess of 150 appearances for the club.

Hannigan began his career with Tranmere Rovers before playing for Vauxhall Motors and AFC Fylde, prior to his move to Altrincham in May 2016.

He appeared 27 times for the Robins last season, but will now link up with the Yellows ahead of the 2022/23 Pitching In Northern Premier League season. 

Hannigan’s capture will help to fill the gap following captain Mark Roberts’ decision to hang up his boots last month.

He will also join former Altrincham team-mate Tony Thompson, whose arrival at Cantilever Park was announced earlier today.

“It feels great to sign for a well-respected club, with good people in charge,” he said.

“I’ve kept track of how Warrington have been doing for a few years, and they’ve been knocking on the promotion door for a number of seasons. 

“A few players have moved on but the core of the squad is still here. 

“I’m aware of the quality in the squad, and with a couple more additions there’s no reason why we can’t make that final step.”
