No Kieran we believed you, but we also know from past experience that names shouldn't be mentioned until it's confirmed by the club.

First of all excellant signing for Workington Town and full credit to the BOD for the way they have handled this, As a club we were kept upto date on when he was in talks, how they were progressing and were told when he was signing etc

As a player Callum has everything needed to be a huge success, he looks after himself and has the same willingness to do well and attitude and dedication as his brother and thats saying something! He can play 7 or 9 personally think he is a hooker in the Nathan Mossop mould but time will tell. When the CARLA league had a mid season break Callum went to Wath Brow and done really well in a team that was top of the league, whilst Seaton had nothing to play for and most players had drifted off, in spite of that Callum chose to come back and finish our season and played a huge part in rallying the lads to finish the season!

Its been an honour to have him in a Seaton shirt, the News and Star article gives a good idea of his pedigree and he will only get better and we all wish him every success in a Town shirt
