Workington Reds are running the rule over former Carlisle United youth forward Romeo Park.

The teenager has been training with Reds during pre-season and has featured in friendlies.

Park was one of the youth team players released by the Blues at the end of last season.

He is now looking to make his next move in the game with Mark Fell's side - who face Carlisle next Saturday - handing the 18-year-old a chance to impress.

Park played the full game in Reds' latest pre-season outing, a 4-0 win at Coppull United in the George Melling Tournament.

Their opening goal was scored by another trialist, Ben McCarron, while a third hopeful - former United youth goalkeeper and ex-Gretna man Jonny Jamieson, got an outing in goal as he targets a second spell with Reds.

Greg McCaragher doubled Reds' lead before further goals from summer signing Josh Galloway - the former Carlisle United, Leeds United and Annan Athletic man - and ex-Carlisle prospect Kai Nugent wrapped up the scoring, the latter from a free-kick.

For Galloway, it was a second goal of pre-season following his switch from Annan.

West Cumbrian Park had featured for United's first-team in pre-season 12 months ago, with the youngster scoring in a friendly victory at Gretna 2008.

He made it onto the first-team bench for the Bristol Street Motors group game against Harrogate Town last November.

But he was among five second-year youth players released come the end of the campaign, along with  Jacob Barry, Will Maddison, Robbie Swinburn and James Walsh.

Keeper Jamieson, 34, came off the bench for Danny Eccles in Saturday's Coppull game, which was Reds' second outing of the summer after a 2-1 defeat to Whitehaven AFC.

The Borough Park club host United this Saturday.
