Amado in Yellows switch

Warrington Town have signed left-sided defender Joel Amado from Trafford.

Amado, 22, was part of the Trafford side that won the 2019 Integro League Cup, and has previously had spells with Curzon Ashton and Irlam FC.

Manager Paul Carden said: “He’s another good young player. A good athlete, he’s 6’2”, he’s got pace and power and he’ll give us a different dimension to what we’ve already got.

"Last season we only really had one player who could play left-back, in Tom Warren, so we wanted to make sure we had cover but Joel is also versatile, which is again something that I’m looking for.

"He gives us a totally different proposition to the left-back position, he gives us balance and gives us the option to play a back three with the defenders we’ve got now.

"We’ve always tried to have young lads who are hungry around the experienced ones, and while we’re still looking to add a bit more experience to the squad, Joel is another good young player who’s got a chance of making it higher up in the game."
