WARRINGTON Town have added another player to their squad - and fans will get an immediate chance to see him in action.

Highly-rated midfielder Luke Duffy joins Paul Carden's squad having starred against them for Lower Breck in a pre-season friendly last week.

He goes straight into the squad for tonight's friendly against Southport at Cantilever Park.

Duffy, who can operate on the left wing and in the "number 10" position behind the main striker, scored 12 goals and made 14 assists last season as Lower Breck moved to the brink of the North West Counties League First Division North title before coronavirus curtailed the 2019-20 season.

Yellows boss Paul Carden believes his new addition will excite fans.

Having played at Liverpool League side Oyster as well as Lower Breck, he follows the same path to Cantilever Park as Ben Garrity, who stepped up into the Football League with Blackpool last season while Duffy has also featured for Salford City's development team

“I’d seen him before but obviously last week was the first time I had seen him at a level against players who you want to see him perform against to judge him really," Carden told the club website.

“He’s not the biggest of lads but more than makes up with his desire, you don’t box to the level he has without being a tough kid.

“Last week was stuff I’d seen on a Sunday but at times, we couldn’t get the ball off him.

“You could probably put three against him in a phone box and you wouldn’t get the ball off him

“He’s a great kid, he’s got desire, and he will excite and make things happen. I spoke to Warren Joyce at Salford and he loved him.

“I know he can score goals, he can make goals, he can go past people like they’re not there and I just want to get him involved.

“We’re made up he’s signed, I think our fans will be really excited by him and hopefully he can do what the last lad we had from that area did.”

“I want to thank Lower Breck. He’s had a spell there and for the Oyster, in what is a hot bed of football and there’s a bit of a pathway now and hopefully he’s not the last."
