Workington Town coach may dip back into amateur ranks

Workington Town coach Gary Charlton admitted he may dip back into the amateur ranks in the future after the success story of their recently acquired trio.
Brett Phillips, Daniel Rooney and Jonathan Dawes have been instant hits since joining the club this term – and Charlton says it is very encouraging to see how quickly they have adapted to life in the semi-pro ranks.
“They have all done really well,” said Charlton. “And we will definitely still look at someone if we think they could do a good job for us in the amateurs.
“When these lads came they were a bit apprehensive about what was coming but we told them to go out there, enjoy themselves and play their normal game.
“They did just that and none of them have looked out of places, if anything they have been very good for us.”
Former Seaton amateur Phillips picked up the man-of-the-match award in Sunday’s derby win over Whitehaven, while ex-Maryport duo Rooney and Dawes also had great games.
Town now head to Swinton Lions on Sunday, and Charlton says although it is hard to change a winning side, he will be bringing different players in this weekend as it is their last chance to take a look at all their options before the start of the league season.
There were no real injuries picked up in the derby win but it is unlikely that any of the players who missed the clash with a knock will be risked against the Lions.
“We said at the start of the Northern Rail Cup that everyone would get game time and we will make changes this weekend,” he added.
“Nobody with any knocks or injuries will be risked because we want to get everyone right for the first league game against Oldham, that is what we are preparing for.”
