Workington Town youngster could be set for return

Talented young Workington Town half-back Marc Bainbridge could be set for a return just in time for Sunday’s Championship One opener against Oldham.

The half-back has been out of action since injuring his ankle in the club’s pre-season friendly at Barrow but has been back in full training this week.

Coach Gary Charlton said: “We will see how he goes at training and if he is okay then there is every chance that he will be playing this weekend.”

This will be a huge boost for the club to have another half-back fit, alongside Carl Forber, with Peter Lupton still missing following wrist surgery.

Chairman Dave Bowden added: “Marc is just at that age where we might see the best of him. The injury interrupted his progress but you also forget how young he is and he is certainly more comfortable at half-back than the players we have had to use so far.”

Town have also had to reshuffle at full-back with both Brett Carter and Elliott Miller suspended.
