We’re too good to go down says Workington Reds boss

Workington Reds’ 4-1 win at Colwyn Bay demonstrated to boss Darren Edmondson that he is not in charge of a relegation side.

Praising his squad after the comfortable win in north Wales, Edmondson said: “We had dropped into the bottom six but there was no way we deserved to be that far down.

“No disrespect to Colwyn Bay, who are in the relegation places, but we were much better than they were and now we are focused on climbing the table as quickly as possible.

“It was a traumatic week for everyone at the club through losing four points and then going down to Gainsborough 3-0 but there is terrific spirit and togetherness in the group of players we have here and that was exactly the reaction I expected.”

Edmondson brought in two more new players and both made scoring debuts, while a third recent addition scored his first goal for the club.

Joe McGee, a 19-year-old from Morecambe, produced a starring role in midfield; Joseph St Juste, a former Leeds United junior netted in his first start and Joe Greenhalgh added to his growing reputation with a thundering strike.

“I’ve been chasing Joe McGee for a while but Morecambe have only been able to let him come now. I’ve known he was a good player and we saw that against Colwyn Bay.

“There will be tougher opposition than that for him to experience but I’m hoping he will continue to give us a lift over the next month.

“If things work out between the player and the clubs we may be able to keep him for the rest of the season,” said Edmondson.

Wigan-born McGee, who has started four senior games for Morecambe, scored the opening goal and then had a hand in all three second-half goals which carried Reds to a deserved and comfortable victory.

Striker Rod Osuwu-Andrews, who had made his debut in midweek against Gainsborough, was unable to play because of a previous commitment made when he was a free agent.

Reds travel to York tomorrow to play Harrogate Town and do have a couple of injury concerns after the Colwyn Bay game. Skipper Dave Hewson and full-back Gari Rowntree both took knocks on the knee on Saturday.



Should the Lakes become a World Heritage Site?

Of course. It's one of the world's most special places

No. It'll bring too many restrictions. It won't help anything

I'm still to be convinced. Need to know more about the benefits
