In amatty clarke 2.pngnother spate of signings Workington Reds are close to retaining all of the squad which played the shortened 2020/21 season.

The club announced today that Matty Clarke, Charlie Bowman and Robbie Hebson have all re-signed and are already gearing-up for the big kick-off on August 14. 

Clarke, 21, joined early in the 2019/20 season and played 31 times, making the right back berth his own after some impressive performances.

Like his team-mates who have already committed themselves again Clarke says he is pleased to have got his playing plans settled so well in advance of a new season.

“It means I can get my head down and concentrate on coming back fitter and stronger for pre-season,” he said.

Manager Danny Grainger added: “Clarkey is another young player who we think there’s more to come from.

“I’d like to see him get more assists and goals as he’s a fantastic player and a great lad to have in the squad and around the dressing room.”

Striker Bowman is another popular member of Grainger’s squad and although he’s never been considered a regular he offers another option up front and has always shown himself to be willing and enthusiastic. 

The 28-year-old said: “It’s good to have an aim now for the season ahead as I’m sick of doing nothing. I’ve been waiting for it to come round so that we can hopefully, rectify two seasons when we’ve not been promoted.” charlie bowman.png

Grainger said: “Chaz is a player who I can’t speak highly enough of. He’s a fantastic lad to have in the dressing room and he never lets us down when called upon. He’s got a terrific relationship with the fans.

“The reason we’ve kept him here is because he’s had a long two years not getting many opportunities and this could be the season that he kicks on.”

The third re-signing Hebson is in his second spell with the club but the 23-year-old didn’t play much last season after being injured in the early FA Cup game at Knaresborough.

There was no doubting his delight at re-signing as he told the club website: “I’m really happy to have been asked back because it’s really the only place I want to play. I was hoping for the phone call and really happy when I got.”

Manager Grainger said: “Robbie was very unlucky with injury last year and we think there’s more to come from him. He can get better and better.

“He’s very versatile and can play in multiple positions so we expect him to really kick-on this year.”
