WORKINGTON Town performed well off the field this week as players led a wek of training camps for youngsters.

The side worked with Workington Town Council to provide coaching sessions to want to be Connor Fitzsimmons and Carl Forbers of the future.

Town Captain Jamie Dornan and Vice-chair of the club Graeme Peers worked with children in Vulcan Park over the course of three weeks to try and help them brush up on their rugby league skills.

The sessions took place on on 11th, 18th and 25th August at 10am for 6-9 year olds and then 11pm for 10.15 year olds.

Around 15 participants allowed per session and most sessions were fully booked across the 3 weeks.

A spokesman for Workington Town Council wished to thank the two men for all their help in training the kids over the weeks.

They said:‘All the children that attended the sessions have said how much they enjoyed them and were delighted to have been able to be trained by Jamie Dornan. T

"he weather was kind for each of the sessions and it has been lovely to see the park being used in this way over the summer holidays.

" It is so expensive to entertain children for 6 weeks, so we really hope these free sessions have helped parents a little and that the children got something out of it as well.’

The good week on the pitch comes after a slighter worse week on the pitch for town who were beaten 40-18 at home by North Wales Crusaders.

The top of the table clash between first place Town and third place North Wales left many fans disappointed .

However, Town still remain top of the table heading into this weeks away match to Doncaster, who are in 4th place after beating derby rivals Barrow on Sunday.

Town will play at 3pm this Sunday.
