We cannot miss chance of promotion next season, says Workington Town chairman

Workington Town chairman Dave Bowden says his side must learn from their mistakes and take the opportunity to escape Championship One next season.

After losing Sunday’s Grand Final to Keighley, the chance of promotion passed Town by but Bowden insists they “cannot let that happen again”.

“We had an opportunity on Sunday which we didn’t take,” said Bowden. “Next season we have to take it and that is what will be driving us – to make sure we get into that league above.

“It is a motivator for us. We now know what it feels like to lose and we need to make sure that never happens again.

“It has been a pretty good season for us, on and off the pitch, but everyone was understandably upset at the final result.

“We were all disappointed with the performance because we know we could do better than that. On the big stage we wanted to show people but it wasn’t to be.”

But Bowden says they have to put that behind them now and look ahead to 2012.

After taking a few days off, Town’s board will come back together and begin preparations for the new season.

He added: “Now that we know where we will be next season, we can start to get ready for it.

“We will get back together next week and start to build a squad to hopefully push on further next year.

“Ryan MacDonald, Neil Frazer and Dave Armitstead won’t be with us in a playing capacity next year so we have brought in Brett Phillips who we think is one for the future.

“There are other players we have got our eye on and we need to start talking to the members of our current squad that we want to retain.”
