WARRINGTON Wolves’ first Volleyball England National League victory remains elusive but they are getting closer.

The new Wolves team fell 3-1 in sets to both Darlington and Hull in successive Division Three North matches on Humberside at the weekend.

Coach Peter Guernari said: “While disappointing to lose both matches I did feel we played better in patches than in our first fixture.

“I do feel we have the potential to beat both teams and winning sets tends to show that. As a new team we will show inconsistency which over time and experience will improve.

“Typically as with every sport we will go back and work harder to improve. I have belief in the potential of this team. I feel sure when we play these teams in the future we will have developed our game to win.”After losing the first set 25-16 against a strong Darlington side, Warrington secured the second 25-22 inspired by four attacking serves by Oskar Waga.

Darlington’s serve was too strong in the third set, sealing it 25-15, but Warrington led 5-1 and 14-8 in the fourth before being clawed back and the north east side emerging 25-19 victors to seal the match.

Warrington were edged out 25-23 in the opener against Hull, who took a 2-0 lead with a 25-16 win.

The third set showed Warrington’s capabilities, producing their best spell of the day in a 25-19 response.

Warrington fought well in the fourth but it could be seen that the long day was having its effects physically and they lost 25-19.

Wolves: Phil Knowles, Robert Meczynski, Bartek Manczak, Valentinas Janious, Alex Brown, Fullons Kristian Solbakken, Sam Lloyd, Oskar Waga, Matthew Agius, Isboses Katende, Mario Franczyk, Chrosphero Caballero.
