Workington Reds keeper Taylor set for Carlisle Utd trial

Carlisle United will take Workington Reds’ out-of-contract goalkeeper Aaran Taylor on trial this summer, News & Star Sport understands.

The 25-year-old, who kept 10 clean sheets during a frustrating year for the Borough Park club, will link up with Greg Abbott’s men when United return to pre-season training.

Taylor has been Workington’s No1 since Tony Caig left the club to join Abbott’s backroom staff in 2010. It is understood there are no guarantees regarding his future at Carlisle, but the keeper will join the League One side for training.

If the shot-stopper does sign on at Brunton Park, he will become the third goalkeeper in four years to make the switch. Carlisle’s current No1 Adam Collin started the exodus from the non-league to the Football League when he quit Workington in 2009.

Taylor’s contract at Workington ended at the end of the season, and he is understood to have turned down a new deal.

Taylor is a solid goalkeeper, who is comfortable on the ball, and commands his area. He has grown in confidence since taking over the gloves from veteran Caig.

As well as keeping goal, Taylor has played outfield in the Cumbrian leagues, and has turned out for Harraby Catholic Club.

Taylor was named Workington’s Away Supporters’ Player of the Year following a good season between the sticks.
