ON paper at least, Warrington Town have quite the selection of strikers.

With the raw pace of Fisayo Adarabioyo now joining the brute strength of Josh Amis, the height and industry of Jordan Buckley and the guile of Tony Gray, Yellows enter the business end of the season with ample attacking options.

It is something they have been seeking all season, with an enforced over-reliance on veteran Gray for many months due to Amis’ long-term foot injury.

With Adarabioyo now in tow – and looking promising having scored on his first Yellows start at Buxton on Tuesday before heavy snow forced the match to be abandoned – manager Paul Carden is excited by his options.

“I look at the four strikers that we have and you could play any of them together,” he said.

“That’s what we’ve been longing for pretty much for the first half of the season. I know they are all going to be important for us.

“Jordan Buckley is desperate to perform as we know he can, Josh Amis is coming back, we know what Tony Gray can do and now Fisayo has come in and shown glimpses of what he’ll bring us.

“I’m certainly excited to have all of those players.”

Unfortunately for Adarabioyo, the abandonment of Tuesday’s game at Silverlands means his goal will count for nothing other than boosting his own form and confidence.

It means Saturday’s trip to promotion rivals FC United of Manchester will be his debut if he plays and the same applies to midfielder Isaac Marriott, who has joined on a youth loan from Championship side Huddersfield Town.

Carden says the central midfielder’s desire to get out and play “football that actually matters” has impressed him.

He also says the 20-year-old reminds him of former Yellows midfielder Robbie Evans, who played a key role in last year’s run to the ‘super play-off’ final.

“He’s busy, energetic and a good footballer. He’s a little bit like Robbie Evans, who was here last year,” he said.

“It’s easy for lads of his age to stay in nice academies, get pampered and play on bowling green pitches, but he’s hungry to come and play.

“He wants to get his hands dirty so to speak and play football that actually matters.

“He’s got enthusiasm and you can never have enough of that.”

Following Saturday’s game, Yellows are currently scheduled for a trip to Ashton United on Tuesday, kick off 7.45pm.
