Workington Reds boss happy in defeat

Workington Reds boss Darren Edmondson was delighted after watching his side’s solid performance against League One side Hartlepool.

Workington suffered a narrow 3-2 defeat though Edmondson took pride in his side’s display, with David McNiven and an own goal worrying their League One opposition.

“From the whole 90 minutes we can take a lot of positives,” he said.

“We matched them for the full game and it was a very pleasing performance.

“Their second goal on the stroke of half-time was a little disappointing. Our right-back was receiving treatment on the sideline and we suffered from tired minds as they scored a simply goal.”

Edmondson was pleased with his new signings and trialists making an impact, with Dan Dillon, Mark Boyd, Jake Simpson and David McNiven all featuring in the build up play to either goal.

And young striker Andy Murray-Jones was again singled out for praise as he continues to impress ahead of next season’s Blue Square North campaign.

Do you believe Cumbria will be part of the northern powerhouse?

Of course it will. Any shift north is good

No. It's already clear we're not part of it

Only if we speak up and demand to be involved
