Report: Gloucester City 1-3 Warrington Town

Warrington Town registered another impressive away victory in the National League North with a 3-1 win at Gloucester City.

Connor Woods’ goal inside three minutes set them on their way and Josh Amis slotted home to put the Yellows 2-0 up at half time against a team who finished in the play-off places last season.

The hosts did pull a goal back through on-loan Birmingham City forward Ben Beresford early in the second half but Amis’ header killed the game as a contest.

After an impressive 4-1 showing on their last away trip to Bishop’s Stortford, the Yellows again got off to a great start as Woods fired a low shot in from the edge of the box.

Much of the early stages of the game was played in the midfield, with Gloucester’s best chance falling to an improvised effort by Harry Emmett, acrobatically tipped against the cross bar by Dan Atherton.

The Yellows played the artificial pitch at Gloucester’s Tiger Turf Stadium well and the second was testament to that – Sean Williams measured through ball releasing Amis through on Zach Jeacock and the skipper slotted home at the near post.

A pattern of Mark Beesley’s time in charge has been how good the Yellows have been with a lead, and although Beresford poked a goal back from Jamie Reckford’s low cross, Andre Wisdom kept the troops marshalled well at the back.

Gloucester had a 10 minute spell where they threatened without creating anything clear cut, until the Yellows got hold of the game again.

And they made the points safe 22 minutes from the end, a direct run by Isaac Buckley-Ricketts opening up the defence for Woods to plant a cross on the head of Amis for 3-1.

The only downside was a late yellow card for Williams, who will now miss the next league game against Rushall Olympic through suspension.
