Stephen Dawes agrees Workington Town return

Winger Stephen Dawes has vowed to find his way to the try line for Workington Town in 2011 after agreeing a deal to return to his former club.

Dawes will be fighting for his place in the club’s starting line-up next season after putting pen to paper on a new contract, after putting in some starring performances for Cumberland League side Seaton over the past few months.

And club chairman Dave Bowden believes he will be an asset to their Championship One campaign.

“Stephen is a winger first and foremost but he can play in the centre and he knows where the try line is,” said Bowden.

“He is always a danger near the line, with a good turn of pace. His time at Seaton has done him the world of good and he has recaptured his appetite for the game, he certainly stood out for them.

“When Stephen gets near the try line he is a strong balanced runner but he is also good in defence and also under a high ball.

“When he is on song he will take some catching and from speaking to him, he is very determined to show how he can play.

“He feels he has wasted the last 12 months in terms of his rugby career, it stalled a little but now he is prepared to show what he can do and in that frame of mind he will be a great acquisition.

“Now he will fight for his position, as he is one of a number of talented backs.”

Dawes spent five years at Derwent Park before leaving due to work commitments which took him away from the area.

When he returned he had a brief spell at Barrow before joining Haven on a one-year deal last season.

But he then went back to the amateur game with Seaton before returning to Derwent Park.
