Workington Reds have announced two more players have committed to next season's promotion challenge.

Strike Charlie Bowman and defender Jordan Little have both agreed new terms with the Borough Park outfit this week.

And they are raring to go as soon as Reds get the go-ahead to resume training ahead of the new 2020/21 season, where the start date is still up in the air.

Bowman suffered through injury last term, picking up a knee problem against Ramsbottom back in January so he is keen to get back into the squad.

He told the Reds website: " I’m just delighted to be asked back with such a strong amount of talent in the squad.

“It’s a great set of lads that I feel I get on with very well.

“I loved being back playing with Scotty [Allison] again. I hadn’t played with him for nine years but before that, with living in the same area, I’d played in the same teams locally and at school.

“I really want, like the rest of the lads, to pick up where we left off and win this league.”

The former Kendal Town and Penrith goal-getter will offer boss Danny Grainger another option upfront as he takes stock for the new term.

And Jordan Little is also remaining with the club, the reliable centre-back is delighted to stay and has high hopes for the future.

The former Penrith and Cleator Moor Celtic player is ready to battle and earn a regular place n Grainger's first team line-up.

He said: "I’m really happy to re-sign for Reds for another year.

“I can’t wait for the season to start and I’m looking forward to have another year with the lads.

“Hopefully, we can gain promotion.”

Reds' last campaign was cut short by coronavirus but Grainger and assistant Steve Rudd are now pulling together a strong side to take another tilt at the title and promotion back up into the Northern Premier League.

Bowman and Little take the number of re-signings up to 10 so far and they follow in the footsteps of the likes of Brad Carroll, Dav Symington, Sam Smith, Dan Wordsworth, Brad Hubbold and Robbie Hebson who have all agreed terms for next season in the past few weeks.
