WARRINGTON Town manager Paul Carden has signed a new two and a half year deal at Cantilever Park.
Carden had been subject of an approach from National League side Chester recently, but has committed his future to the Yellows until at least the end of the 2019/20 season.
He said: “I’m delighted to sign. Me and Toby (Macormac, club chairman) had an agreement when I came in, and the commitment shown from the club to me and the same back I think was important.
“Toby wanted to get it done as much as I did, so we’ve agreed it and hopefully we can take the club forward and have a longer spell and bring in success together.”
Carden celebrated his new deal by watching his team thump Lancaster City 5-1 on Tuesday night, lifting them to second in the league table.
He revealed that he had received approaches from clubs at a higher level recently, including from his former club Chester, who recently appointed Marcus Bignot, who interestingly was at the Yellows last home game against Stourbridge.
Carden added: “I was at Chester for a long time as a player, I was captain and you do have a think about it, but the main thing for me was that we’re starting to build something here now.
“Toby has never once said to me you can’t do this or you can’t do that, because I think he knows how hard we work as well. It’s not just about signing player after player, we work hard to try and get the right balance, and I feel that we’re getting somewhere.
“It’s important we maintain that. I didn’t want to start looking elsewhere and I committed myself, even if it was only verbally at the time. When I said no to Chester for an interview, I think Toby’s recognised it and I’d never want to walk away from here, we’ve got too much to do!”
Warrington Town are next in action this Saturday at home to Whitby Town and it is Non League Day, which means all supporters can pay what they want on the turnstile.
