Putnam double helps Yellows beat Wythenshawe Town

Warrington Town secured their first victory of pre-season with a 3-1 win away at Wythenshawe Town. 

In difficult conditions at Ericstan Park, the Yellows were worthy winners as they continued their preparations for the 2022/23 Pitching In Northern Premier League season.

Luke Duffy opened the scoring, smashing home from 25 yards out after excellent build-up led to a half-clearance from the hosts. 

Their advantage was doubled shortly after half-time, Oliver Putnam capitalising an error from Wythenshawe keeper Elliot Wynne to slot home into an empty net.
