Nines to blame for Workington Town mid-season blip, says Charlton
Last updated at 12:05, Monday, 02 July 2012
Another win on the road maintained Workington Town’s position on the heels of Championship One leaders Barrow.
But joint coach Gary Charlton – as against Whitehaven last week – wasn’t exactly singing and dancing after the latest success, 30-20 at North Wales Crusaders.
Charlton acknowledges that Town, despite maintaining their winning sequence, have hit a mid-season blip – and he has his own theory on why.
He said: “I believe it may have had something to do with the fact that we have been missing players for training through the Nines competition.
“We’ve had players involved with Cumbria and obviously when they are not with us we can’t work on things in training.
“There have also been one or two injuries and generally for the last couple of games we haven’t been our best at all. We have been playing well this season but not recently.
“I can’t fault the players for their efforts and the determination they have been showing but we just haven’t been as smart on the field as we were earlier in the season.
"We have a weekend off coming up and I hope that having all the squad together again for training will produce a different kind of winning performance in our next game at home to South Wales.”
