Workington Town have added to their pack options by signing ex-Hensingham and Whitehaven forward Jordan Thomson.

Thomson, who came through the Cumbrian Player Pathway for the most talented community game players, most recently played for Kells.

And he said he is excited to start a new chapter as part of Chris Thorman’s squad for the 2021 campaign at Derwent Park.

He said: “When Gary Hewer and Chris got in touch and told me about their plans and goals it was an easy decision to sign.

“They continue to build a predominantly Cumbrian side so it was a no-brainer to join.

“I’m looking forward to getting back out there and back to some normality.”

And Town head coach Thorman believes the forward will add a touch of experience to his pack.

He said: “Jordan adds more experience to our relatively young and versatile pack.

“He is another local lad with plenty of experience in this league and has a great work ethic and attitude, which I’m hoping will have a positive impact on the group.

“His signing will add depth to our back row options and I’m really looking forward to working with him.”

Thorman has been busy preparing for a tilt at the 2021 Betfred League 1 title next season as he builds a squad he hopes is capable of challenging for honours.

Thomson’s signing comes hot on the heels of former Egremont Rangers’ amateur Matty Henson earlier this week.
