Workington Reds boss praises striker Jonny Wright

Darren Edmondson lavished praise on star man Jonny Wright after the striker’s stunning performance helped Workington Reds to a 4-1 triumph over Stalybridge Celtic.

The victory was Workington’s biggest opening day triumph since hammering Matlock 4-0 in the Unibond Premier eight years ago. It was also the first time Reds have scored four in a match for 18 months.

Wright scored one, created another, and caused major problems for the visitors’ defence.

Workington’s talisman tormented defender Joel Bembo-Leta, causing him to gift one goal and concede a penalty.

Edmondson still has concerns over his front man’s persistent back problems, but said: “He’s a handful and when he’s mobile, it was nearly the Jonny of two years ago, but we have to be careful with him. I have tried to bring another centre forward in for cover, because we will have to nurse Jonny.”

Edmondson also praised goalkeeper Aaran Taylor. He said: “I was gutted when Carlisle sneaked in and took Aaran on trial because he’s outstanding.

“He had a couple of games pre-season when his head wasn’t in the right place, but when he’s switched on, he’s one of the best in this league.”
