WARRINGTON Rylands 1906 will play three friendly matches either side starting their 2020-21 season in the FA Cup.

Dave McNabb's side visit 1874 Northwich in the extra preliminary round on Tuesday, but their North West Counties League Premier Division season does not start until Saturday, October 3.

With that in mind, Blues have arranged several friendlies to keep themselves sharp.

They will travel to Stockport Town on Saturday, kick off 3pm, before visiting Garswood United on Saturday, September 5, kick off 1.30pm.

Blues will cross the border into Wales to take on Bangor City in their final friendly on Saturday, September 26, kick off 3pm.

If they beat 1874 on Tuesday, McNabb's side will advance to face Clitheroe at Gorsey Lane in the FA Cup preliminary round on September 12.
