Will be a massive loss to the club, he is Blue and White through and through......

Thanks for everything Dave - You've done the club proud under your leadership.

Be a massive loss to the club, he has done a fantastic job in his time at workington town. Thanks for everything Dave.

Agreed, a big loss really sorry to see him go. Hard boots to fill.

Most supporters who post on this forum would say they love our club, I certainly do, and have done since I first watched them as a seven year old. we buy our season tickets, our replica shirts, our Lottery tickets, our half time draw tickets and put a bob or two behind the bar on matchdays. In a nutshell we all think we do our bit, and if there were a few hundred more like us, the club would be in a better position.

If we love the Town, then how much does Dave Bowden love them ? He has put his heart and sole (and money) into running the club for the past 10 years, at times it must have seemed like it was a 24/7 job with his family and home life taking a back seat.........that's true love.

Dave and his BOD stepped in to save the club from sliding into the abbyss 10 years ago, and he leaves us with the club in a higher division, in the black, and with a squad of players (when fit) who can hold their own in this division, most of who are on 2 year contracts. A remarkable achievment by any standards. Mission accomplished :)

Best of luck for the future Dave, enjoy the spare time you will now have, and thanks for your drive and unselfish commitment over the past 10 years. You deserve a place in the hall of fame, up there with Brian Edgar and Gus...........Thanks mate :(
