TALENTED back-rower Adam Ramsden will get another chance to prove his worth with Workington Town after signing a new deal.

The former Wath Brow amateur had his first season in the professional ranks cut short by the coronavirus pandemic.

But, after putting pen to paper to stick with Chris Thorman’s squad next year, Ramsden is determined to play his part in the club’s tilt at the Betfred League 1 title in 2021.

He said: “It was a massive opportunity that I didn’t want to miss out on, as my time was cut short last year.

“Town has a great set of lads and a great coach and I’m just looking forward to what can happen this coming year.”

Ramsden initially signed for Town back in February – just weeks before lockdown struck and the season was curtailed.

But Thorman said at the time that his recruitment was a positive indicator of the club’s commitment to sign some of the best Cumbrian talent for the club.

And he has high hopes for the talented forward that he can develop and play his part in next season’s campaign.

Thorman said: “It’s great that Adam will be with us again. When he arrived, he’d only ever played in the community game and I gave him some clear instructions of what he needed to do to make the step up to League One.

“He knuckled down in training and he was rewarded with a debut in the Challenge Cup.

“Adam has continued to work hard during lockdown and is in good shape, this bodes well for him when we get back into training.

“He shows great attitude in all aspects of his training and I’m really looking forward to watching him progress and making plenty more appearances in a Town shirt.”

Ramsden had previously spent six seasons honing his craft with Wath Brow Hornets before taking his chance to step up into the professional game.

Town have been busy this week with experienced half-back Carl Forber signing a new deal, hot on the heels of acquisition of former Leigh Centurion Brad Holroyd.
