Two more signings for Warrington Town


WARRINGTON Town have signed defender Andy White from Altrincham and midfielder Oliver Putnam from Witton.

White, 29, becomes the Yellows’ third summer signing from Altrincham, following goalkeeper Tony Thompson and fellow defender Tom Hannigan.

Manager Mark Beesley said: “Andy White is another excellent signing for us. Again he’s a player with pedigree of winning this league and having success in the league above.

“He’s an outstanding defender both sides, he can play right back or left back. He’s got a great use of the ball, he’s played in a great footballing team for years and it was a no brainer.

“Taking advantage of Altrincham going full time and knowing Andy possibly couldn’t, we made him a key target and to get him through the door is a massive bonus.

“He’s going to be excellent for us. He’s a good lad, he’ll fit in really well and we’re starting to take shape a bit now.”

Young midfielder Putnam, 20, impressed playing against the Yellows for Witton Albion.

Beesley added: “Ollie is a young player that we earmarked at the end of last year. We thought he was excellent against us for Witton, he came recommended and once we knew he was available we snapped him up quickly.

“He’ll bring us energy, goals from midfield, and that drive. He’s a forward type midfield player that we need to complement what we’ve got.

“He’s young, he’s hungry, he’s determined to do well and he adds competition in midfield and is something different to what we’ve got. He’s a really good signing for us and someone we’re looking at working with to develop and help him push on next year.”
