I could not fault players, says Workington Town coach Charlton

Workington Town coach Gary Charlton accepts his team is on a learning curve in the Championship.

But Charlton believes the Town squad will quickly get to grips with the higher standards being set following their promotion last year from Championship One.

After the 20-8 home defeat by Halifax he said: “That was a very good effort against the best team we’ve come-up against for a while. We knew they would be strong defensively but it’s the controlled way they go about their business, and their clinical finishing, which makes them a bit special.

“I couldn’t fault our players today. Perhaps we weren’t as tight as we should have been when they scored their tries but most of the side are still learning at this level. If someone had said we would have four points after our first two games in this League I would have taken that. It’s a solid start and something we can build on.

“The thing is now there isn’t an easy game at this level and we have to keep our focus right the way through the season.”

Town had made a flying start with a try in 54 seconds. Carl Forber finished off a long-range move with a try under the posts, which he converted.

“You can’t ask for a better start than that and although we were behind at half-time we were still in the contest until they scored two tries on 61 and 68 minutes.

“We’d had plenty of pressure on them before that but their defence was outstanding, and perhaps we weren’t as smart as we could have been,” said Charlton.
