The games can’t come quick enough for Workington Reds as they look to keep their unbeaten start in the NPL North West Division going and cement their place at the top of the league table.

Reds have had to cope with a hectic start to the season, playing six matches in 17 days and have two more to play in the next four days.

They are on the road again tomorrow, travelling to face Runcorn Linnets (3pm kickoff) before returning to Borough Park on Tuesday night to take on struggling Kendal Town (7.45pm kickoff), who have just one point from their opening six games.

But manager Danny Grainger believes that suits his players when they are in such good form, having won four and drawn one of their opening five league games with their only defeat so far having come in the FA Cup.

“We want the games to come thick and fast,” he said.

“The players are champing at the bit to go.”

Grainger also revealed that his players were disappointed to drop two points at home in midweek when they were held to a 1-1 draw by Colne.

And he believes that is a good marker of the determination in his side to succeed this season by getting the club promoted.

“The good thing for me is, I’ve gone in that dressing room and they were disappointed to get a point against a good team,” he said.

“That for me is massive.

“A point at home against a team that’s going to be in and around us all season and they’re disappointed.

“For me that proves how far the lads have come.”

Meanwhile, Reds’ commercial officer Darrell Thomas has left the club after 15 months.

Thomas joined the Reds in May last year and a club statement said he had brought “a professional and much-needed fresh approach to the club’s commercial activities” during his time at Borough Park.

It added: “He provided outstanding front of house qualities on matchdays and his expertise will be missed.

“The club would like to thank Darrell for his services and wish him well for the future.”
