Gareth Arnison has re-signed for Evo-Stik Northern Premier League Premier Division club Workington AFC and will travel….
….with the squad for tomorrow’s game at Grantham Town.
It will be a welcome return for the striker, who netted his 100th goal for Reds eighteen months ago, as options up front are limited at the moment.
Martyn Coleman quit the club last week, while Jonny Murray and Aden Wainwright are both injured.
He is unlikely to start, following his recent illness, and it will be sometime before attaining 100% fitness. Nevertheless, his return is a timely boost to morale.
Jake Smith joined the injured list after hobbling out of Thursday’s County Cup tie, but brother, Sam, should be back in contention soon after surviving a few dubious tackles in the same match.
Reds haven’t played Grantham since the mid-eighties so a first visit to their ‘new’ out of town Meres ground which doubles up as an athletics stadium.
