Workington Reds aiming to bring in three new players

Workington Reds boss Darren Edmondson hopes to have three players signed in time to play Colwyn Bay tomorrow.

The 41-year-old had hoped to add the recruits to his squad for Tuesday’s loss to Gainsborough, but was let down with managers not getting back to him.

Reds have been decimated in recent weeks with a number of high-profile injuries – including goalkeeper Aaran Taylor and midfielder Mark Boyd.

But Edmondson said: “I’m pretty certain we’ll have three in for the trip to Colwyn.

“New faces bring a freshness to a club. They haven’t been here during the bad times so they come in without worry.”

Reds go into the game at Colwyn, knowing defeat would bring them closer to the relegation zone.

Workington were docked four points on Monday for fielding an ineligible player.

Edmondson said: “This is a testing time, but matches are coming thick and fast, and a few good results and we are looking up, and not over our shoulders.

“We have to remain positive, and I believe in this squad of players.”

Workington haven’t enjoyed the best start to 2013. They are without a win, but have a decent away record with three wins in the last eight trips.

No. Dogs worry livestock and foul public areas because of owners who don't give a damn
