Reds boosted by new recruit

5 months ago By Paul Armstrong

Workington Reds have revealed a new signing with the intention of improving the club’s fortunes.

“I am delighted to join the team at Borough Park. My only goal is to obtain much needed revenue for the club as well as giving West Cumbria’s business community an entertaining corporate sporting experience with the area’s most progressive football outfit” Darrell Thomas

Joint-chairman, John Mackay, announced that Darrell Thomas has joined the club to head up the commercial department, the success of which will improve the playing budget for next season.

Thomas, former managing director of CFM Radio and deputy advertising director of Cumbrian Newspapers, has a wealth of experience working with companies across Cumbria over the past twenty five years since moving to the area from Cheshire to launch CFM Radio with John Myers.

He says, “I am delighted to join the team at Borough Park. My only goal is to obtain much needed revenue for the club, as well as giving West Cumbria’s business community an entertaining corporate sporting experience with the area’s most progressive football outfit.”

“Without the help and support of the business community, this level of football will disappear and the natural progression for grass roots football will have nowhere to go, so it was the right decision to contribute to a sport I am passionate about.”

Thomas joins the Reds on a part-time basis and will integrate his football duties within his media consultancy business which also helps and supports golf clubs across north-west England.
