WARRINGTON Town chairman Toby Macormac says he will take time away from football to reflect upon his continued involvement with the club.

Having invested huge sums of money into the club, Macormac says he will consult family and trusted friends before making a decision.

For the second time in as many completed seasons, he watched his side fall agonisingly short of promotion to the National League North at the final hurdle.

They were beaten by Scarborough Athletic in Monday’s play-off final to consign them to another season in the Northern Premier League Premier Division.

Macormac admits the ending to the 2021-22 campaign “leaves a sour taste” having battled to steer the club through the Covid-19 pandemic.

“I have to ask myself “when are we actually going to do it?” he said.

“It’s a huge personal sacrifice that I put myself and my family through.

“There are huge financial investments that you have to ask yourself if you can keep doing it season after season.

“For me, because it has been such a tough post-Covid season and we’ve had to fight harder than ever, I think I just need to switch the phone and emails off and take some time out for a little bit to reflect.

“I’ll speak to people close to me, there’s always people I turn to within the game that I need to sit down and speak to.

“We’ll see what happens when I’ve had some time out because it has been a tough season and when it ends like it has done, it can leave a sour taste.”
