Workington’s Brett Carter says that chairman Dave Bowden was one of the reasons he renewed his contract at Derwent Park.
Carter, 24, was touted to return to his hometown club of Barrow or county neighbours Whitehaven but the full back decided against any move.
The Scotland international has become a key figure for Workington over his three year spell producing a number of big performances at full back, and the unfamiliar role of stand-off.
He said: “I’ve become quite settled at Workington. I have been at the club for three years and the lads have been great. We have improved each year since I moved and I wanted to be in a team that settled for next seasons challenge.
“The interest from other clubs gave me something to think about. People presumed I’d return to Barrow where I made three first team appearances when I was younger, but I didn’t fancy the move to a different club.”
Carter has become a fans favourite at Derwent Park earning praise from all directions for his good attitude and stellar work ethic.
The full back said what he enjoyed most about the club and what makes Workington special to him.
He said, “The players have are what I enjoy about this club the most. The majority of the lads are local so we all get on and I played against most of them when I was growing up so I know a lot about them already.
“Dave Bowden has the best interests in the club and me. People have good respect for him and the job he is doing at Workington Town. There is a pretty good feeling around the club.”
