AS lockdown begins, changes have been made to the squad at Warrington Town.

Four players from Paul Carden's squad have been moved on, with two being brought in.

The latest two to depart are summer signings Craig Carney and Joel Amado.

Left-back Amado has made five appearances since joining from Trafford and started Tuesday's 3-1 defeat to FC United.

Midfielder Carney featured heavily in pre-season but only made one appearance once the competitive action started – a cameo as a substitute in Saturday's FA Trophy victory over Lancaster City.

The club also confirmed yesterday that full-back Tom Warren and striker Chris Holroyd had moved on.

Warren was voted as the club's player of the season in the curtailed 2019-20 campaign but fell out of favour this season and had a spell out on loan at Spalding United.

Holroyd made just two substitute appearances during his time at Cantilever Park.

"Sometimes there’s a fit and sometime’s there isn’t between a player and a club, and nobody signs with any intention other than to do well," manager Paul Carden said of Holroyd.

"I’ve known Chris a long time – since he was 19 or 20 – he’s a good lad but he needs to get a club that’s crying out for a starting striker.

"I just don’t think he was the right fit for us as it turned out, but those things happen."

On Warren, the Town boss said: "He’s on about going to America for a scholarship.

"He came back for pre-season and it just wasn’t quite happening for him.

"I expected a lot from him but again, these things happen and I wish them both all the best."

Joining Carden's squad is left-back Eddie Clarke and experienced centre-half Phil Edwards.

Clarke, 21, who made his debut as a half-time substitute against FC United of Manchester, was handed his professional debut by Carden at Tranmere Rovers back in 2016, and was released by Fleetwood Town in the summer, having spent spells on loan at Macclesfield Town and Stockport County.

Edwards, 34, has played more than 450 games in the Football League, notably for Accrington Stanley, Rochdale and Burton Albion.

He was an unused substitute at Broadhurst Park in what was the last Yellows game before the enforced break due to lockdown.
