Rested Workington Town raring to go

Table-toppers Workington Town are expected to return to training with a new spring in their step today after enjoying a week off.

The squad was handed a break following the impressive Good Friday win at Whitehaven, and will now launch preparations for next week’s visit of North Wales.

“The lads have gone out there and performed to a high standard, and you’ve got to give them a bit back,” coach Gary Charlton said.

“The time off was partly to say well done, though there’s a long way to go.

“And we’ve also had some tough games, and they maybe needed to be refreshed a bit.

“We’ll now be in on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday next week to prepare for North Wales.”

Charlton watched the league newcomers beat South Wales on TV this week and is happy to be playing Crusaders early in the campaign.

“People maybe expect too much of these new teams, as they have been put together in only a small space of time,” Charlton added.

“But they will be competitive and will get better as the season goes on. I’m pretty happy to be catching them early on.”



Alex Salmond says Cumbria will be Scotland's closest friend as well as nearest neighbour, come independence. Do you agree?

You don't shun close friends and keep them

Why would he care, if he believes he doesn't need us?

Yes. Our bonds with Scotland are historic and unbreakable
