Workington Town have been enjoying a good time of late which included a strong crowd of 1,623 for their clash with York City Knights on Sunday afternoon. But unfortunately the tide has turned momentarily for the League One side as they pick up the pieces from a burglary at the club following the 18-14 defeat. This would be bad news enough for any professional club let alone a semi-professional outfit who naturally rely a great deal on volunteers as well as staff members. Former Hull FC star half-back Leon Pryce is Town’s coach and responded to the news by labelling the people responsible as ‘disgusting’ but the ex-Great Britain international insists Workington will remain strong. “Nothing worse than thieves,” he posted on Twitter . “We will stay strong and not let this diminish the positivity that has taken a long time to build around the Workington Town club. Disgusting how low some people will go.” A police spokesman said a ‘quantity of cash’ was taken on Sunday night by thieves, who also caused damage to the premises. Workington are remaining resilient, though, and good luck to them as they recover and get back on track in their bid for promotion to the Championship when they travel to Newcastle Thunder on Saturday.
