Falkirk take Workington Reds midfielder on trial
Last updated at 12:52, Monday, 14 January 2013
Workington Reds midfielder Will Vaulks could be on the verge of a move to Falkirk after having a trial with the Scottish First Division side.
Vaulks is on a rolling contract with Reds after being released by Tranmere a month ago.
They are expecting to make a decision on the teenager this week and he may be offered a contract.
Any move would mean a double blow for Reds, who are having to adjust to life without Joe Mwasile after the Morecambe man ended his loan spell in Cumbria on Saturday.
The winger ended his three-month loan stay with one of the few bright performances in Reds’ 3-0 defeat at lowly Histon.
Workington boss Darren Edmondson said: “Obviously we are sorry to see Joe go because he’s been a breath of fresh air while he’s been here. He has scored goals and shown exceptional ability on the ball. I feel sure it will have given his career a lift.
“What we have to do now is try and find someone to come in and fill the gap left by Joe, which won’t be easy.
“I have been talking to a few clubs about players they have who may fit in for us at Workington and I hope to be able to tie something up during the week.”
Mwasile hopes the stay at Workington will have given his career a boost.
“I’ve enjoyed it immensely because they are a great group of players. It’s been a pleasure to play alongside them as I’ve learnt a lot playing with the Reds. I hope now that I can challenge for a first-team place at Morecambe. I know they have been keeping an eye on my progress at Workington and fingers crossed I can get a chance,” he said.
Edmondson was disappointed with the Histon defeat but still feels there is enough ability in the squad to get back into play-off contention.
“The biggest disappointment was that we had enough chances to win the game. Histon took theirs and we didn’t or we should have been taking something home with us. I wasn’t happy with some of our defending either so really it wasn’t a good day for us. But I still have faith in the players to get back up the table.”
