Warrington prop heads to Workington

Warrington Wolves have confirmed that young prop forward Tom Walker has been transferred to Championship side Workington Town with immediate effect.

Walker, 20, who featured in this week’s pre-season friendly against Widnes, was previously part of Town’s academy before joining the Wolves.

Warrington say that the move will provide him with regular game time and open-age first-team experience.

The Wolves will, however, have first option on him come the end of the transfer period.
