Danny Grainger has made his first signing of the summer, adding Aidy Roxburgh, 23, to the Workington squad.
The versatile defender, who can operate on the left or right, travelled to Cumbria to discuss terms with the manager before putting pen to paper on a one-year deal.
The Chester based fullback started his career with Runcorn Town then continued his introduction to senior football with a spell at Welsh club Greenfield. He returned to Town where he became a regular in North West Counties football.
His progress was rewarded with hometown club, Chester, recruiting the attacking fullback then allowing him to get valuable first team experience with Trafford.
It was whilst with the Shawe View outfit that he came across Workington for the first time during the 21-22 season. He scored against Reds in a 2-2 draw at Trafford but things didn’t go quite as well in the return at Borough Park.
Roxburgh was harshly sent-off just three minutes into the game and remembers getting plenty of stick as he left the field prematurely.
After a good personal season with Trafford, he linked up with Altrincham but injury restricted his appearances for the Robins last term, although loan spells with Ashton United and Nantwich Town boosted his game time considerably.
Grainger was pleased to get the first signing completed and said, “Aidy is keen to make a fresh start and comes to us highly recommended. Following the departures of Charlie Birch and Matty Clarke, it was an area of the team which needed strengthening and Aidy’s versality will be to our benefit.
“He is an attacking fullback, will be suited to our style of play and I’m looking forward to seeing him in a Workington shirt,” concluded the Reds’ boss.
