Workington Reds have re-signed Robbie Hebson.

Hebson was one of a handful of players invited to join the squad for pre-season training by new manager Danny Grainger and has worked his way into the boss's plans.

The young right-sided player originally joined Reds towards the end of the 2013/14 season and stayed with the club for the next three seasons.

Highlights included a nine-goal campaign in the 2015/16 season which included his first hat-trick for the club in an FA Youth Cup tie and earned him a first-team call-up.

That led to his first Northern Premier League goal in a 1-1 home draw with Rushall Olympic.

Hebson also turned out in the play-off final at Salford City three years ago, playing much of the game after replacing Joe McGee as a substitute.

In his first spell at Borough Park, he made 12 starts for the seniors plus a further 42 appearances from the bench.

He has since enjoyed a successful two-year stint with his hometown club Penrith.

Speaking after re-signing for the club, Hebson told Reds' website: “We got relegated last year but we’ve got to get ourselves back up there.

“Workington don’t deserve to be in this league and we’ve got to show that this season.”

He added his goal is to work his way into the first-team and cement his position at right-back.
