City of Liverpool FC are pleased to announce the signing of experienced forward Tony Gray from Warrington Town.

Gray joined The Yellows in 2017 from Cymru Premier side Airbus UK and has played for a number of big clubs on the Non League circuit including Chester FC, Southport and Telford.

The forward has considerable experience of playing at the highest level of Non League football, notching a total of 42 goals in the National League during his career.

Tony has also had a taste of European football, representing Bangor City in the UEFA Intertoto Cup in 2005. During his time at Airbus UK, Gray also played twice in Europa League qualifying tie against NK Lokomotiva and scored a total of 23 goals in 42 Cymru Premier games for The Wingmakers.

In 2017 Gray left Airbus to sign for Warrington Town and Purps fans may remember him scoring against us with a well taken curling effort in our FA Cup tie replay in September 2019.

Speaking on his signing for The Purps, Gray said “I’m happy to be signing for the club and am looking forward to getting together with the lads and getting down to hard work.”

Purps manager Craig Robinson added “It’s a pleasure to welcome Tony to our football club and for us to attract a player like him to the club shows how far we have come, especially when you look at the clubs Tony has played for throughout his successful football career.

He comes with a good goalscoring record, including last season, and will bring plenty of experience to the squad.”

We are sure all fans will join us in welcoming Tony to the Club.
