Danny Grainger is happy to have a selection headache this weekend as Workington Reds prepare for a trip to the NPL North West Division's basement boys Pickering Town.

The Reds boss made seven changes to his team for their midweek Integro League Cup game against Mossley and admitted there wasn't a single bad performance in the side as they ran out 2-0 winners.

Among those who came into the starting lineup on Tuesday night were David Symington and Charlie Bowman, who combined for Reds' first goal.

That has given Grainger some big calls to make for today's clash with Town at the Recreation Club (3pm kick-off) but it is a problem he is happy to have as he has plenty of trust in his squad.

He said: "There are places up for grabs and when you look at the squad it's strong across the board and that's what we wanted.

"It's a vital part and when you come through busy periods like this you need all of your strikers to be firing, your defenders to be performing and that's what we've got.

"Every weekend, every training session they're pushing hard and giving me something to think about."

Grainger confirmed that young midfielder Luke Ivison, who started against Mossley and grew into the game over the course of the clash, has joined Penrith on a one-month loan under ex-Reds boss David Hewson.

Meanwhile, Reds have launched a new scheme aimed at helping to cover the costs of staying at Borough Park.

The club were due to move to Derwent Park earlier this year while a new 8,000-capacity stadium was constructed on the site of Borough Park.

But when those plans were shelves by Allerdale council in the summer, directors, staff and volunteers had to work quickly to prepare their current ground for the new season in a matter of weeks.

Now the club is appealing for help to cover the costs of that stay while the council decides what happens next.

A club statement said: "Workington AFC would like to invite supporters to invest in our £100 Drive initiative, to help manage the costs of continuing to play football at Borough Park.

"There have been significant outlays to meet this season, not least a £12,000 electrical repair bill.

"By buying £100 of shares, or more – or by making a donation to the club – you will be helping us to meet the cost of maintaining the stadium.

"Directors and a number of shareholders have already committed to supporting this drive and every additional contribution will be invaluable."
