Workington Town forward James Robinson has agreed a new deal to keep him at Derwent Park for another year.

The 31-year-old club stalwart has always been dedicated to the Town cause and chairman Dave Bowden said he was delighted that Robinson had agreed to stay.

“James has been at the club as long as I have,” said Bowden. “He is a great clubman, a stalwart at the club and now one of our senior players.

“He knows that, like a lot of the players, getting into the team will be harder next year than it has ever been but he is ready for the challenge.

“He is such a good clubman that he will be fighting hard for his place and it is just great to have him around.

“We know he always gives his all and we are delighted to have him back on board.”

Robinson joined Town back in 2003 coming down to help out then coach Paul Penrice when he was struggling and soon became a regular feature in the pack.

And the second rower has never looked back, earning himself a place in supporters’ hearts for his never say die attitude and enthusiasm.

Town are now close to finalising their squad for the 2011 Championship One season, although they are still on the lookout for a half-back following the news that Liam Finch will be out for up to a year with a full knee reconstruction.

And they will begin their pre-season campaign with a trip to Whitehaven on Boxing Day for the annual Ike Southward Memorial derby clash.
