WHITEHAVEN RL have announced the loan signing of Perry Singleton from fellow Championship club Workington Town.

The move will see Glenn Riley head to Derwent Park for the next month. 

Singleton, who will now complete the Cumbrian treble following 2 spells at Workington with a spell at Barrow in the curtailed 2020 season, joins the club and can cover a number of position either in the backs or the forwards for Jonty Gorley’s injury-hit squad and will be available ahead of this weekend’s trip to Widnes Vikings at the DCBL Stadium. 

Meanwhile Glenn Riley will head to Chris Thorman’s Workington in search of game time following his return to training in the last few weeks. 

Speaking about both moves Director Ashley Kilpatrick said: “We’re delighted to have Perry for a month, Perry can play back row or centre which gives us that versatility there.

"I’ve always rated Perry as a player, From watching him play for Cumbria against Yorkshire & Lancashire a couple of years ago and more so since he made the step up to the pro game.

"Perry has always been one of the names I looked for on towns team sheet, He’s tough,aggressive and strong. He also brings that enthusiasm, he likes to get off the line and can put a shot on someone in defence.

"Glenn goes with our best wishes and hopefully gets some much needed game time under his belt, as he trained the house down during pre season. Hopefully Glenn gets his head down gets some games under his belt and goes well.”
