Port Vale and Crewe are being linked with Warrington Rylands striker Elliott Nevitt.
Freelence football reporter Pete O’Rourke says the clubs, plus Accrington Stanley, are interested in the 21 year old who scored a hat-trick for Rylands in the FA Vase final at Wembley last month.
Nevitt’s hat-trick fired Rylands to a 3-2 win over Binfield in the biggest game in his club’s history – and completed a remarkable week for the Liverpool-born forward who had scored the winning penalty in the Vase semi-final against Walsall Wood, and then netted the winner for Campfield FC in the final of the FA Sunday Cup.
Speaking about Nevitt after the Vase win, Warrington manager Dave McNabb told the Warrington Guardian.
“He’s a fantastic player – he’s had some week having squashed the Sunday national cup in the middle.
“He’s a great kid, really quiet and down-to-earth and he’s a big part of the dressing room.
“As a player, he’s got so many raw attributes. He’s still got a few things he needs to work on, but what a player he is.”
Nevitt has been with Rylands since October 2020 when he signed from City of Liverpool FC.
McNabb took over as manager three years ago and the club has had plenty of success since moving up from the Cheshire League to the North West Counties
They won the North West Counties First Division South in their first season, reached second in the North West Counties Premier when 2019/20 was declared null and void because of Covid, and then this past season enjoyed an FA Cup run that only ended in defeat in the second qualifying round at York, remaining unbeaten in the curtailed league and thriving in the Vase.
A reward for their performances over the last two lockdown-affected seasons has been promotion to the Northern Premier League in the restructure announced by the FA in May.
