Workington Reds Ladies issue rallying cry

Workington Reds Ladies have issued a rallying cry to other women’s teams in the search for a match.

RED LADY: Megan Murdock for Workington

They have played just two friendlies and one Cumbria Cup game in eight months, and are desperate to increase the number of minutes spent on the pitch.

Taking to social networking site Twitter, the club’s official feed asked any team interested in playing them, within travelling distance, to get in touch.

The message said: “We are a newly-established team looking for friendlies to help us build for our first season in the league.”

Reds Ladies, who formed after Whitehaven disbanded, will compete in the Cumbria Women’s League next season.

Affiliating themselves with West Cumbria’s biggest football team, they train every Wednesday at Netherhall Sports Centre.

Around 26 players have joined the club, coached by Fiona Buglass.

Their only competitive match came earlier this month as they crashed out of the Cumbria Cup at the hands of Carlisle Ladies.

Already part of the team is distance runner Laura Park, as well as Demi Jones, Kerry Stapleton, Megan Yarnold, Danielle Easdon, Sarah Scott, Lisa Cullen, Mairead Kinsella, Andrea Buggy, Linzi Donaldson, Megan Murdock, Hannah Green, Rachel Kitchen, Chloe Henderson and Amy Richardson.
