PAUL Carden was glad his Warrington Town side got out to a good lead against North Ferriby United today before the conditions took a turn for the worse.

Cantilever Park was swept with high winds in the second half of today’s game, but Yellows were already three goals to the good thanks to goals from Jack Mackreth, Adam Hughes and Jake Kirby.

The conditions made life difficult for both sides in a low-key second half before Jack Dunn added a fourth goal late on.

“We were at it from the off,” Carden said.

“We had more of the play and we made things happen. We were good for the half-time lead.

“I told them at half-time to win the half and keep a clean sheet, which we did.

“That wind in the second half was forecast for just on kick off, so I’m glad it was an hour late.

“It let us get a bit of football played because conditions were terrible in the second half.

“We made changes early. Robbie (Evans) was feeling his hamstring so there was no point in risking that.

“Tony Gray had missed training all week with back strain, and Jack Mackreth has been nursing his thigh.

“We’ve got players who came on who don’t weaken the side. They strengthen it in different ways.

“It was comfortable and good to get lads off the bench for some game time.”
