HAS the suspension of non-elite football come at just the wrong time for Warrington Rylands?

With games stopping for at least four weeks in line with the Covid-19 lockdown, Dave McNabb's side are unbeaten in the North West Counties League Premier Division.

In their last game before lockdown, Blues won 3-0 at Congleton Town to sit top of the table with four wins from five games.

Goals from Kane Drummond and Charlie Doyle had them in control before the break, with Elliot Nevitt rounding off the scoring midway through the second half.

"I thought the lads played really well, with and without the ball," McNabb said post-match.

"We spoke a little bit on Saturday about when other teams have spells in the game, we need to control the game out of possession and I thought we did that really well.

"It was a very close game in the first half and we took our chances – that was the main difference.

"In the second half, I thought we were fantastic."

Striker Nevitt has now scored four goals in three appearances since signing from City of Liverpool last month.

Despite the lightning start to his Blues career, McNabb believes the best is yet to come from the frontman.

"He’s still not fully fit – that’s the scary thing," he said.

"He’s been really good. He’s settled into the group really well so it’s not just his performances on the pitch.

"He’s added something to the changing room as well so I couldn’t be happier with him."
