Workington Reds have nothing to fear says Edmondson

Despite Workington Reds’ hellish start to the season, boss Darren Edmondson said his troops have nothing to fear.

The much-fancied Stalybridge Celtic kick things off for Workington, at Borough Park on Saturday (3pm), before Chester, Halifax and Guiseley make up the opposition.

All four sides are predicted to be in with a chance of promotion, but that doesn’t faze Edmondson, who predicts Workington will cause a stir this year.

He said: “On paper, it’s a tough start, but names on a sheet of A4 mean nothing when that whistle goes.

“We have nothing to be scared of. Stalybridge are a good team, but they are just 11 men, who have no form, or momentum going into the game.

“This is the day where we all stand level on points, and anything can happen.”

Workington have been plagued with injuries, and Edmondson is hoping to have at least one new face in the squad in time for Celtic’s visit.

Veteran midfielder Wayne Curtis, who can also play as a striker, has been offered a contract after impressing Edmondson during pre-season.

The 32-year-old ex-Football League player would add steel to the middle of the park, according to Edmondson, who said: “I have offered Wayne a contract, but we are still working on the specifics.

“Wayne has shown he’s a good player, and comes to us with a decent pedigree.

“He’s a player that offers a lot to the team because he can play different positions. His hold-up play is excellent and he brings others into play.”
