In a new series of features we are asking Town and Reds fans to select their Dream Team or to share memories of a special game. This week Darren Wood takes on the challenge of his best ever Reds XI:

This season has been cut short for Workington Reds as they looked to fight back into the Northern Premier League.

Fan Darren Wood has gone through all the emotions after following the Borough Park club since he was young so he has taken his time to select his favourite XI plus subs that he has seen pull on the jersey.

GK – Tony Caig

Gutted we only had him for one season. His experience was priceless in the 2009/10 season in beating teams like Wimbledon and high flying Fleetwood.

RB – Alan Grey

He was just a model professional during his time at the club.

LB – Gari Rowntree

A great servant To Reds who wore his heart on his sleeve.

CB – Kyle May

A true Workington legend who would do anything for the team.

CB – Dan Wordsworth

Apart from one bad season he’s a 7 out of 10 in every game.

RM – Joe McGee

Good on the ball and worked hard for himself and the team.

CM – Will Vaulks

During his short spell with the club, we knew he would end up having a good career in the professional game.

CM – Tony Hopper

Never had a bad game and was dedicated to the cause.

LM –Conor Tinnion

Top skilful player who can win a game on his own, as shown against Tadcaster last season.

ST – Johnny Wright

He was a perfect hard-working No9 and it was probably the most disappointed I’ve been to see a Reds player leave during my time following the club.

ST – Gareth Arnison

His partnership with Johny during the Conference North days was up there with best and Gareth was a great finisher.


GK – Adam Collin

Another great keeper and deserves to have the professional career he has had.

Defender – Lee Andrews

Another great servant to the club coming in and forming a great partnership with Kyle May, again in the Conference North years.

Midfield – Steve Birks

A typical hard working and strong tackling midfielder who would grab games by scruff of the neck and get us over the line.

ST – Craig Johnson

Yet another great servant for the club, a great finisher and high workrate. He didn’t deserve his career to be ended by a serious knee injury.

ST – Scott Allison

His record speaks for itself, over 100 goals in his time at the club.
