JIM ATKINSON (goalkeeper)
Joined the club in 2019 quickly establishing himself as the first choice ‘keeper, recording sixteen clean sheets in an impressive debut season.
Was with Lowland League club Gretna 2008 previously and played for Queen of the South earlier in his career.
Made the headlines in 2021 when he scored a goal and saved a penalty in a match against Morpeth Town, becoming the first Workington ‘keeper to do so. The goal he scored was timed at 10 seconds – the quickest in the club’s history.
Kept nineteen clean sheets last season and named in the NPL West ‘team of the year’.
