Reds to host Penrith at fourth attempt
Published at 13:52, Tuesday, 04 December 2012
Workington Reds will finally get their Cumberland Cup match with Penrith played at the fourth attempt.
The match was due to be played at Borough Park after Penrith were forced to cancel the match twice due to the weather.
Freezing conditions last Tuesday saw the game, which has been switched to Reds, also called off.
Boss Darren Edmondson will use a mixture of first team players returning to fitness, and the promising reserves coming through the ranks.
Mark Boyd is one of the players due to play, after weeks on the sidelines with a calf injury.
Lee Andrews and Dan Wordsworth are also expected to play.
Edmondson said: “The Cumberland Cup is a great chance for us to test some reserves, and see how they play with the first team.
“It’s an important local competition, and we will respect it by playing a squad capable of winning the match.”
The game will kick off at 7.30pm.
