More to come from Yellows says Mitch Duggan

Warrington Town defender Mitch Duggan says there’s more to come from the squad, as they await the resumption of the league campaign.

Paul Carden’s side progressed through in the FA Trophy following a penalty shoot-out victory over Lancaster City, before falling to a 3-1 defeat away to FC United of Manchester before the lockdown.

So far this season, the Yellows have recorded five wins, one draw and three losses in the Pitching In Northern Premier League Premier Division, sitting fourth in the table.

Duggan has featured six times in the league so far this season, including twice from the bench, and believes the team have more to offer in the 2020/21 campaign.

“We got off to a good start without really playing well,” he said.

“We have had some inconsistent performances and results, but still find ourselves in a good position.

“There’s still plenty of football to be played, so hopefully when it restarts then we can go on a good run.

“It was nice to get a win in the FA Trophy, especially against Lancaster as they beat us the week before.

“We’ll try and win every game we play and hopefully go as far as possible and get a few good ties against teams in leagues above us.

“I wouldn’t mind a trip to Wembley either!

“Promotion is also definitely still the aim. I think it’s wide open again with everyone beating everyone, I don’t think one team will run away with it. It’ll be tight right until the end.”

Warrington’s last game against FC United came on November 3 at Broadhurst Park, and Duggan says the team stayed in touch over the second national lockdown and have been working on their fitness, before returning to training last week.

“We’ve got a WhatsApp group so the lads are always talking on there,” he said.

“We started Saturday with some fitness challenges to do at home, so I think more challenges will be put in a few times a week now just to make sure we’re ready for when the season starts again.”

Although training has now resumed, there will be no league fixtures until at least December 19, after the Northern Premier League clubs voted to continue the pause of the season due to the Government restrictions on crowds in tier 3 areas.

However, the FA Trophy game away at Marske United goes ahead tonight (Tuesday).
