Coach pleased with plucky Workington Town performance

Workington Town’s plucky performance in defeat against Super League Widnes earned top marks from coach Martin Oglanby.

After watching his depleted squad hold the Vikings to 30-6 at the Stobart Stadium, Oglanby insisted it was an encouraging effort three weeks ahead of the new Championship season.

“We set them a few targets and goals for the game and we are delighted with how they responded to those challenges.

“It was a really good effort with a makeshift side against a Super League outfit who have already had the benefit of one hard run-out against Warrington,” said Oglanby.

Town were short of nine regulars and had to use two amateur players – Adam Ramsden (Distington) and Greg Rowley (Glasson), along with conditioner Matthew Johnson.

“I can’t thank those two amateur lads enough. They did us proud.

“I have to give a special word to Matthew who filled in on the wing and did a super job. He’s at the top of his game as a conditioner and I think he’ll be well pleased with how the lads lasted the pace against a Super League side.”
