The Non-League Football Paper - - EVO-STIK NPL PREMIER - By James Gor­don

WAR­RING­TON TOWN con­tin­ued their won­der­ful season as they went top of the ta­ble thanks to sec­ond half goals from James McCarten and Josh Hine.

This was the Yel­lows third straight win, and their ninth in 14 matches so far.

Sean Wil­liams’ first time strike from the edge forced a good save out of Shane Bland, and from the re­sult­ing cor­ner, Jack Hig­gins headed just wide.

From an­other half cleared cor­ner, Rory McKeown had a low shot blocked and then the hosts had the ball in the net – James Bar­ri­gan con­vert­ing nicely from Shaun Bee­ley’s right wing cross, only to be flagged off­side.

The early stages of the sec­ond half were dis­rupted by a knock to striker Jamie McDon­ald, though Wil­liams did have a half chance on 54 min­utes when he tried to loft the ball over Bland from the edge of the box.

The break­through came on 59 min­utes, a free-kick from the right by Wil­liams was spilled by Bland un­der pres­sure from Hig­gins and a cou­ple of his own de­fend­ers, and the ball fell for McCarten.

A mis­take in mid­field by David Car­son saw the ball fall to Josh Hine, and he didn’t need a sec­ond in­vi­ta­tion to nip in and beat the ‘keeper one-on-one.

Whitby kept bat­tling and they set up a nervy spell of in­jury time when Matthew Ty­mon bun­dled the ball home.
