Workington Town have been inundated with early enquiries into the vacant coaching position at Derwent Park.

Just a day after the club parted company with head coach Leon Pryce, interest has been flooding in to officials.

But, right now, the club is keen to look ahead to Sunday’s match at Keighley with experienced skipper Ollie Wilkes at the helm, alongside the current coaching staff.

Town chairman, Les Smallwood, said no permanent decision had yet been made and they were not rushing into anything.

“We have already had a lot of enquiries and all we have said to people it to send in their CVs,” he said.

“At the moment, as far as we are concerned, Ollie will be in charge for the next fixture at Keighley along with the other coaching staff.

“We are staying as we are for this week and then we will see what happens in the future as we look to keep the club moving in the right direction.”

Town head to Keighley on Sunday to take on a team brimming full of confidence after a 26-18 victory against Doncaster last weekend.

And their coach Craig Lingard believes that his team is on the brink of something special as the season goes on.

“As it stands, this bunch of misfits that nobody wanted don’t know how to lose,” said Lingard.

“We weren’t happy with our first-half performance and we were under the pump at times in terms of the field position and possession that we didn’t have.

“We put a challenge out to the boys at half-time and they went out in the second half and rose to it and I’m immensely proud of the effort.

“It was our first real test and we’ve come through it with a win.

“We can now take this confidence into another tough game against Workington.”
