FOOTBALL fans will be able to continue attending matches in Warrington.

Despite enhanced coronavirus restrictions taking effect both locally and nationwide, the Government have confirmed teams at the seventh tier of the football pyramid and below can continue to admit paying spectators under the current restrictions.

Warrington was one of the areas subjected to tighter rules last week, many of which were rolled out nationally yesterday, and as part of them, spectators were advised against attending amateur and semi-professional sporting fixtures.

However, clarified guidance has been issued stating fans can still attend games below the National League North/South provided venues are Covid-secure and social distancing is maintained.

It means Warrington Town, Warrington Rylands 1906 and local league clubs in and around the town can still play games in front of a limited amount of fans.

Yellows have two more home games this week – against Gainsborough Trinity on Saturday and Atherton Collieries on Tuesday evening.

Rylands are not currently scheduled to play at Gorsey Lane until their FA Vase clash with Goole on Saturday, October 10, but could be drawn at home in the FA Cup second qualifying round on October 3.
