Striker Jordan Connerton to sign for Workington Reds
Last updated at 12:01, Tuesday, 07 August 2012
Jordan Connerton will finally complete his on-off transfer to Workington Reds tonight.
The striker held talks with boss Darren Edmondson after his release from League Two side Crewe, but looked destined to sign for Lancaster City, his hometown club, after communications broke down.
Dolly Blues boss Mike Hoyle even announced the 22-year-old’s signature.
But less than 24 hours later, everything changed, and Hoyle issued a statement before the 3-2 win over Workington.
He said: “Jordan was given an offer he could not refuse and we wish him well. We can not deny him the opportunity.”
Connerton is part of the Reds side that travels to Penrith tonight. Last year, he scored the winning goal in the last game of the season to guarantee Workington’s survival.
Edmondson confirmed that Connerton would be putting pen to paper, and said he was pleased to add an attacker to his ranks.
Connerton will join Gareth Arnison, Jonny Wright, Stefan Scott and Ryan Hall up front.
Arnison and defender Gari Rowntree are also expected to take part after missing the Lancaster loss due to other commitments.
