The Reds have released their upcoming clashes in the Pitching In Northern Premier League.

Workington AFC will take part in their first NPL game on August 14 with an away game against Kidsgrove at the Autonet Insurance Stadium.

They then welcome City of Liverpool to Borough Park on August 17.

An exciting clash then takes place between Workington Reds and Marine FC on August 21.

Non-league side Marine FC hit headlines in January when they welcomed Premier League giants Tottenham Hotspur for an FA Cup clash.

Reds are then away to Rylands Recreation Club on August 24 followed by another Borough Park clash with Marine on August 28.

Workington then travel to Shawbridge and face Clitheroe, a formidable side in the NPL.

A range of other exciting clashes are on the way including Colne, Ramsbottom, Kendal Town and Mossley AFC.

Interim manager Steve Rudd said: "It's going to be a tight league, there's seven or eight teams at the top of the league that think they can win."

But first, Reds are looking ahead to a Cumbrian derby against Carlisle on Saturday.

Rudd said: "When you're looking at the other teams in our league they're winning six nil, seven nil, you look at who they're playing and they're teams five leagues below.

"Every pre-season we play, we want it to be as realistic as we can."
