A MEETING with Football League opposition is the highlight of Warrington Town’s confirmed pre-season calendar.

Yellows will welcome League One side Accrington Stanley to Cantilever Park for a friendly match on Monday, July 22.

There are plenty of Stanley connections within the Town ranks - manager Paul Carden, captain Mark Roberts and goalkeeping coach James Speare have all enjoyed playing spells at the club.

It is one of two home friendlies for Carden’s men ahead of the 2019/20 season – the other being a meeting with City of Liverpool FC on Tuesday, August 6 – and eight matches overall.

Their pre-season campaign will open at Skelmersdale United on Tuesday, July 16, and will close with a trip to Runcorn Linnets on Saturday, August 10.

The new Evo-Stik Premier Division season kicks off on Saturday, August 17.
