WORKINGTON Town have bolstered their squad this week ahead of the start of next years 2023 season, with Kells brothers Aaron and Jordan Burns- who are said to be fulfilling a 'childhood dream' of playing together professionally.

It comes on the back of a bumper week of signings for the club which has seen Anthony Murray's squad taken up to 21 men ahead of the town's first season back in League One.

On Saturday, November 12 the club also announced the signing of Ghanian International Sean Sabutey and ex North Wales Crusaders and Rochdale man Earl Hurst, both can play wing or centre.
