Luke Griffiths eyeing up promotion with Yellows

Latest recruit Luke Griffiths believes the squad has enough talent to win promotion in the Pitching In Northern Premier League 2021/22 season.

The 23-year-old midfielder signed with the club earlier in August, later making his Yellows debut against Kendal Town following a four-game ban from the previous season.

Prior to joining the club, Griffiths had spent the past two seasons at Northern Premier League rivals FC United of Manchester, featuring a total of 53 times.

Griffiths also featured in the club’s successful FA Cup run, with Neil Reynolds’ side making it through to the First Round Proper, defeating Pontefract Collieries, Curzon Ashton, Alfreton Town and Guiseley along the way before being knocked out 5-1 by Doncaster Rovers at Broadhurst Park in a behind-closed-door fixture.

The Liverpool-born player came through the youth system at Bolton Wanderers and also spent spells at Runcorn Linnets, Marine and Prescot Cables, and now links up with Warrington Town manager Paul Carden for the 2021/22 campaign.

“I think now the squad has come together there’s a lot of experience and youth in the team which is perfect,” said Griffiths.

“My goals this season are to play as many games and add some goals to my game and hopefully as a team reach promotion.

“My time settling in was hard at first having to deal with my four match ban and not being able to settle straight away but the lads and staff have all been perfect with me.

“As I said before our main target this season is to reach promotion, the squad as a whole has the potential so why not?”
