Last updated at 12:42, Saturday, 26 January 2013
Former Workington Town and Whitehaven hooker Gary Mounsey has joined the Town board of directors.
Mounsey, 51, a driving instructor from Maryport, played eight matches for Town before moving down the road to play for Haven for eight years.
But the former Glasson Rangers amateur player and coach is no stranger to Derwent Park, having managed their scholarship scheme for the last five years.
“I’m honoured and delighted to have joined the board,” said Mounsey. “These are exciting times at Workington Town, what with the Championship season starting in just over a week’s time and the club hosting two games in the 2013 Rugby League World Cup.
"I’ve been very passionate about Town in recent years and I feel that the experience I’ve had in rugby league can bring a lot to the club. I’ve been working quite a lot with Malcolm [Allison] on the youth side, as well as the three other board members Frank Gilmour, Mark Fryer and Tony Boyd.
"And I also worked a lot with Dave Bowden before he stepped down, a man who I admire very much. June Kennedy has helped me a lot during my recent time at Town. Her help with the Scholarship scheme has been great,” he added.
“I really can’t wait to get started and work. I’m looking forward to the challenge ahead and will put my heart and soul into the club. I think we can do well in the Championship this season and look forward to bigger and better things for Workington Town.”
