Blue Square Bet North club Workington have signed young striker Jonathan Hooper on `work experience` from Barclays….
….Premier League side Newcastle United.
Hooper, also known as `JJ`, has recently returned from Ebac Northern League First Division outfit Darlington 1883 where he was on on similar terms.
The 19-year old 6’1″ striker was signed by Newcastle in August 2011 from Kent Hurlimann League side at Sevenoaks Town after a successful trial and London-born Hooper hit a hat-trick on his debut for the under-18s against Chelsea on the opening day of the 2010/11 season.
Hooper is a tall and strong frontman who has already demonstrated his eye for goal.
He made his reserve debut against Bolton in October 2011.
