Fans of Workington Reds are continuing to relive the club’s special moments with another classic match recreation in the pipeline.

Although they fell short of their ambitious “Stay Home Record” target, Workington Reds raised £7000 for the club’s Covid-19 fighting fund and NHS charities last weekend, live streaming a virtual recreation of Reds vs Manchester United.

The classic clash from 1958 is arguably their most iconic match, the encounter at Borough Park saw Reds players face the formidable Busby Babes. The side hoped to break the all-time home attendance record of 21,500 fans with the match recreation.

More than 3,350 tickets were sold for the livestream which included commentary from John Walsh and a match summary from current Workington Reds boss Danny Grainger.

Chairman Les Byers said that the club are happy with the product: "We were happy with what we did in the time we had to do it.

The package that was streamed last Saturday was not the sum total of the work put into it.

Mr Byers said: "We haven't dismissed the thought of putting that extra information in and broadcasting at a later stage."

He added that it was a positive move for the club whilst recreating the match day feel: "The whole thing was a learning curve but it brought together a lot of our isolated fans."

The next project to bring fans together will be a recreation of the shock away win versus AFC Wimbledon in 2010. Commentary from the match is set to be broadcast on BBC Radio Cumbria tomorrow. The commentary features former Reds and Carlisle United defender John Holliday alongside John Walsh.

However Byers said: "We've found the actual footage of the match. We intend to match footage with the commentary and do another match day experience."
