Report: Morpeth Town 2-2 Warrington Town

Warrington Town will face Morpeth Town for the third time this season after they were held to a 2-2 draw in the Emirates FA Cup first qualifying round on Saturday.

The Yellows twice led in the north-east through Luke Duffy and Stefan Mols, but must now host the Highwaymen again on Tuesday night to see who progresses to the next round of the competition.

Mark Beesley’s side beat Morpeth 2-0 at home on the opening day of the 2022/23 Northern Premier League season.

They were without Jay Harris and Sean Williams for the trip, while Jordan Buckley was also sidelined following the knock he picked up against Nantwich Town on Bank Holiday Monday.

Duffy opened the scoring on 18 minutes with a mazy run and shot from 20 yards.

Morpeth equalised on the half hour mark but Mols’ deflected shot meant the Yellows went in 2-1 to the good at half-time

However, a penalty 11 minutes into the second half gave Morpeth the chance to equalise and force a replay.

It means the Yellows’ previously scheduled league game against Rylands is postponed and will be re-arranged, with a date to be announced in due course.

Morpeth Town: Lowson, Wombwell, Reid, Donaldson, Henderson, Turner, Foalle, Pani, Scott (Pearson), Thomson, Ramsey (Sayer).

Warrington Town: Thompson, Seary (Walker), White, Hannigan, Gumbs, McDonald, Howard (Amis), Mols (Putnam), Buckley-Ricketts, Dixon, Duffy
