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

WAR­RING­TON Town con­tin­ued their fine re­cent form with a nervy win over Marine.

A first-half penalty from Jack Mackreth was the dif­fer­ence but Marine pro­vided a stern test to the Yel­lows’ cre­den­tials and they just about had all the an­swers.

Com­ing in to the game off six suc­ces­sive clean sheets and four com­mand­ing vic­to­ries, the Yel­lows were forced back in the early ex­changes by Marine, play­ing their first game un­der new man­ager Neil Young.

Tony McMil­lan, who was named the Yel­lows’ player of the month for Au­gust, de­nied for­mer War­ring­ton mid­fielder Liam Hynes from point.

And it was the Yel­lows that broke the dead­lock, a tricky run by Dy­lan Vas­sallo ended up with him go­ing down in the box and Mackreth con­verted de­spite the best ef­forts of Martin Fearonl.

Marine nearly can­celled it out barely 60 sec­onds later when Chris Doyle’s header hit the bar.

As the game en­tered its fi­nal quar­ter, the War­ring­ton Town goal was lead­ing a charmed life.

The best chance would fall for Mitch­ley, who hit the in­side of the post on 86 min­utes.

War­ring­ton also hit the bar late on but held on, de­spite Richard Brodie’s late red card.
