The evolvement of Workington’s first team squad continues as Keelan Leslie becomes the latest departure.
A popular member of the squad for the past three seasons, Keelan has decided to look at other options as he contemplates the next stage of his career. He made 28 starts during this time at the club and was named as a substitute on 48 occasions.
Keelan was a valuable member of last season’s promotion winning squad and made a successful return to Brunton Park, helping Reds lift the Cumberland Cup in May.
He scored a cracking first goal for the club in the pre-season game at Dunston then registered his first competitive goal in the FA Cup victory over Prestwich Heys.
The left sided midfielder/defender originally joined us on loan from Carlisle United and made his NPL debut against Market Drayton Town in September 2021, becoming a permanent signing later that campaign first under Chris Willcock and then Danny Grainger last term and this.
“Keelan has been in and out of the first team and I was looking at different ways to progress his development and become more sustainable in the side but he has opted to take a different path.
I cannot thank him enough for his commitment since I returned to the club and wish him all the very best for the future,” commented the manager.
Keelan’s last appearance was in the recent fixture at Marske United and the club would like to thank him for his time at Borough Park and wish him the best of luck for the next chapter of his career.
