THE arrival of the weekend means it is time to look ahead to today's football action.

A new era dawns at Warrington Town today, while Warrington Rylands are looking to bounce back from defeat as both sides have home fixtures.

Yellows are in FA Trophy action for their first game under the charge of new manager Mark Beesley.

Having stepped up from his role of assistant manager to replace the departed Paul Carden, Beesley leads his side into battle against fellow Northern Premier League Premier Division side Morpeth Town at Cantilever Park.

He does so with his side aiming to extend a run of eight unbeaten games in all competitions and advance to the third round.

However, facing them down is a Morpeth side that are improving after a poor start – they have lost just one of their past eight matches under the management of Craig Lynch.

In the West Division, Rylands are back at Gorsey Lane for a game against Ramsbottom United.

Blues saw their six-match unbeaten run in the league ended last time out with a 2-0 loss to neighbours and fellow promotion contenders Runcorn Linnets.

That left Blues in fourth spot as one of seven teams separated by just four points as they bid to bounce back against the Rams.

Their visitors have won three of their past four games but have struggled away from home having lost six on the bounce on the road.
