Josh Amis discusses promotion hopes and his leadership role

Warrington Town striker Josh Amis is confident that his side are capable of mounting a serious push for promotion this season.

The Yellows have been in good form under recently-appointed manager Mark Beesley, who succeeded Paul Carden back in November. 

However, Saturday’s 2-1 home loss to South Shields, their second league defeat since Beesley took charge, saw the club drop out of the play-off places.

Amis, who has scored eight times in 24 appearances in all competitions this season, insists Town need to get into a habit of turning promising performances into points.

“I think we’ve had games where we’ve played really well this year and haven’t taken the points away,” he said.

“It’s three points that we want to come away with at the end of the game. Anything more in terms of a good display is a bonus.

“It’s about taking it one game at a time and getting the right result.”

Despite their setback last weekend, over 1,000 fans were in attendance at Cantilever Park. 

Amis insists a vocal support, both home and away, will give the players an additional boost as they look to regain their momentum and continue pushing towards the top of the division.

Ahead of Saturday’s trip to Whitby Town, he said: “Definitely, the type of game you want to be involved in is two teams at the right end of the table in front of a big crowd.

“The crowd can be massive for us, especially if we get a good gate [at Cantilever Park]. 

“By getting behind the boys, it can really help the lads and give them that edge.”

Following the club’s recent 3-3 draw at Buxton, manager Mark Beesley praised Amis’ leadership qualities within the first team playing group. 

The 27-year-old insists he will do anything in his power to support the players around him between now and the end of the season.

“I really enjoy being at Warrington, and I don’t really look at the lads as being younger than me. At the end of the day, they’re just your team-mates. 

“If I can do anything to help any of my team-mates out, that’s what I’ll try to do. 

“I think we have a really good group of lads at the club, and I think that helps us when it comes to a promotion push.”
