WARRINGTON Town are well-fancied by bookmakers to win the Northern Premier League Premier Division title.

Yellows are listed at odds of 12/1 by new competition sponsors BetVictor, which makes them joint third favourites alongside FC United of Manchester and Scarborough Athletic to lift the trophy and gain promotion to the National League North.

South Shields – the team Town beat in last year’s divisional play-off final – are currently the 7/4 favourites to be champions.

Newly-promoted Morpeth Town, who travel to Cantilever Park for the opening game of the season on August 18, are 10/1 second-favourites alongside recently-relegated Ashton United.
