Former Great Britain halfback and Super League legend Leon Pryce is the surprise appointment as head coach of League One club Workington Town.
The 36-year-old, who had one of the most glittering and illustrious playing careers of the modern era, has signed a two-year deal at Derwent Park, where he will succeed Dave Clark.
League Express understands Pryce will spend several days a week in Cumbria in order to help the transition into his first coaching role since retiring as a player earlier this season.
“It’s a great move for me and it’s good to get a chance in coaching,” Pryce told League Express.
“It’s maybe a little sooner than what I expected, to get my first coaching job, but I think it’s the right opportunity for me. It’s a good level for me to start at too and a good club in Workington.”
