FC United re-sign Danny Warrender, as Margy declares 15 cup finals
FC United is pleased to announce that former defender and midfielder Danny Warrender has rejoined the club, following an absence of more than two years.
The 26-year-old ex-Manchester City trainee made 47 appearances for the Reds between September 2008 and December 2009 before having to take a break from football due to a hip injury and some personal issues.
Manager Karl Marginson explained how Warrender’s second spell at the club has come about. He said: “Danny has been going through a tough time but he’s got himself fit and he asked if he could come down to training. He played in a practice game against Curzon the other week and he looks fit and hungry, which is great, so we’ve taken him on.”
Margy explained that he was undecided whether Warrender would be used to strengthen the defence or the midfield but he was certain that he would be a good addition to the squad. He said: “Danny had a spell at Ramsbottom but obviously, he’s not been involved with FC United for a long time so we’ll have to see how he fits back into the squad, what’s right for us and what’s right for Danny. But everyone who saw him play for us last time around knows that Danny has that quality which will make him a great addition to the team, whether he plays in defence or midfield.”
The last couple of weeks have obviously been frustrating for everyone with no football being played due to the weather but Margy is confident that his team can kick-on now until the end of the season. He said: “I’ve told the players that they have a minimum of 15 games left and they are 15 cup finals. We’ve learnt from last year and we’re in a much stronger position now, so I’m confident we’ll be in the mix for promotion at the end of the season.
“Tuesday gives a fantastic opportunity to get back on the pitch and pick up where we left off against Hednesford, we want to win at Frickley and do well in the cup because it’s a great opportunity to win some silverware. Then we’ll turn our attentions back to the league and getting into the play-off places.”
Frickley Athletic versus FC United of Manchester in the Doodson Sport Cup is this Tuesday 14th February with kick-off at 7.45pm. It’s pay on the gate as usual.
