Workington Reds will be on their travels again in the FA Cup when they line up in the first qualifying round.

Following their 3-1 win at Knaresborough on Saturday in the preliminary round Reds must visit Radcliffe on Tuesday, September 22. Radcliffe play in the NPL Premier Division – going up two years ago as Reds came down – but they did meet in a pre-season friendly last year.

They were lying 16th of 22 when the 2019/20 season was voided.

Reds boss Danny Grainger was happy to get through on Saturday when Reds picked up the winners’ cheque for £1,444.

“It’s all about getting into the hat for the next round so I’m just pleased that we did that.

“We did our job and although I know we can play better it’s job done as far as I’m concerned.

“The main thing now is that we follow up on Saturday with a win in the opening league game at Pickering,” he said.

Grainger had one more injury to contend with on Saturday after Robbie Hebson was forced off after only being on the field a few minutes as a substitute.

“It was one of those things that happen in football. As the ball was going out of play he was pushed by an opponent and ended-up hitting one of the barrier posts. His knee was pretty sore and it’s something we will have to assess during the week.

“Jordan Little picked-up a recurrence of an old ankle injury in the last friendly against Lancaster so he is going to be out but I expect Dav Symington to be available for the Pickering game.” said Grainger.

Reds Under-18s made progress in a national competition on Sunday when they beat Scarborough Athletic 3-1 at Borough Park.

Goals from Matty Foster, Louis Pickering and substitute Cieran Poultney earned them a trip to Hebburn Town in the first qualifying round.
