WE shared the news that former Carlisle United prospect Kai Nugent has rejoined Workington Reds on a permanent deal.

The teenager, who was released by the Blues at the end of last season, has returned to Borough Park where he had a loan spell in 2022/23.

Midfielder Nugent, 19, becomes new manager Mark Fell's first signing at Reds ahead of the 2024/25 Northern Premier League Premier Division campaign.

Here's what our readers said.

Stephen Bell said: "Good luck to the lad never given a chance at Carlisle," while Sam Samo Painter said: "He looked good in pre-season last year, madness that he never got a run out in the first team."

Alex Benson, Charlotte Wigham, Christine Yeomans Stalker and Vikki MacGregor all wished Kai good luck for his next adventure.

Emma Aimers said: "Best of luck Kai - show them what they’ve missed out on."

The Blues academy product spent last season on loan with Annan Athletic, having had a previous spell with Workington when he helped Danny Grainger's team win promotion.

After a year as a professional with United, the Cumbrian teenager will now aim to kickstart his career as part of Fell's new-look side.
