Workington Town Manager Darren Edmondson praised his two loan singings after Tuesday night’s 1-1 draw with Alfreton Town in the Blue Square North.
Defender Tom Aldred (pictured, left) an LFE Blogger last season only agreed to join the Club on a one-month deal from Carlisle United an hour before the 12pm deadline to register players for the match and slotted in the centre of defence with Kyle May out injured.
Edmondson said he could see the potential in the Scotland Under-19 international and predicts a bright future in the game for him. He said:
“For a teenager he is a big strong boy and he will be a good player for Carlisle United.”
“At his age he needs to be playing consistently to aid his development and he has come to us to get that game time. He needs to be playing men’s football and he has a lot of attributes to his game that will see him do well in the future.”
Striker Andy Cook (left), who rejoined Workington on another one month deal last week from Carlisle, started his second game and did everything but score.
Edmondson said it was his best performance to date and added:
“Andy has only played four games since July and there is a lot more to come from him.”
“He needs to realise what it takes to play at this level but he is a hard worker and put in a good shift for us.”
“He could have scored a few against Alfreton if he had taken his chances but we know he is a goal scorer and the goals will come.”
