New Workington Reds signing Louis Potts has his sights set on helping the Borough Park outfit to promotion in his first season.

Potts, who joined the club last month after departing Preston North End says he can't wait to start scoring goals in Workington colours.

Speaking to the club website Potts said he has enjoyed being in training with the Workington squad and can't wait to get going.

He said: “It’s good to get back playing again. I can’t wait for the season to get started.

“They’re a great group of lads. They’ve made me feel welcome. It’s a good set that’s easy to fit into.”

The 18-year-old striker is determined to make a good impression on his manager and the fans.

He added: “I just want to get off to a good start, score as many goals as possible, and hopefully, make a good impression.”

And he admitted that Reds' table-topping form last season and promotion ambitions were what made him sign on the dotted line for Danny Grainger's side.

“Obviously, the success you had last season was a massive thing," he said.

“I thought I could come in and help us to be as successful as last season, push for promotion again, and make a good impression.”

The squad has begun training in Penrith as they wait to hear on a definite date for the start of the 2020/21 season.

The club’s revamped development squad will play their football in the Cumberland County League from the start of the new season after their election was ratified at the AGM on Monday.

They will take their place in Division One alongside 10 other teams – Crown Newlaithes, Mirehouse, Moor Row, Northbank, Pirelli, Whitehaven Amateurs Reserves, Whitehaven Miners Social, Windscale Reserves, Workington Juniors (Black) and Unisun Athletic.

The development squad will play their home matches at the Copeland Stadium in Whitehaven which will also be the base for Reds In The Community for the foreseeable future.

Brian Dawson will manage the team with Craig Johnston his assistant. A date for the resumption of the league is still to be set.
