Workington Reds have appointed director Alec Graham as the club’s new general manager.
The lifelong supporter-turned-official began his role this week, and said he was delighted to be given the chance to raise the Borough Park club’s off-field profile.
Graham will work full-time for Workington, and has a number of responsibilities, including speaking with potential sponsors, and helping improve the services Reds currently offer.
He has also been charged with bringing extra revenue into the club.
He said: “It is an exciting challenge for me, and one I am relishing.“To come on board full-time shows the club is really trying to improve its stature within the community.”
“I will be working on a number of projects, and ways to bring more income into the club coffers.“I have a number of ideas already in the pipeline.”
Workington have frozen ticket prices for the coming season, which sees adults paying £12 for the second season.
Under-16s pay £5 with concessions’ tickets priced at £7.
Season ticket prices also remain the same. Adults cost £215, concessions £125 and under-16s £40. If an adult buys a season ticket, an under-16 ticket costs £20.
Graham said: “If an adult buys a season ticket, he can also purchase an under-16 ticket for just £20.”
