Forber re-joins Workington

Workington celebrated a derby victory over Whitehaven at the weekend by confirming the re-signing of half-back Carl Forber.

Forber, 26, returns to Derwent Park after a nomadic past few seasons which has seen him turn out for Blackpool, Swinton and Oldham.

The goalkicking half-back was released by the Lions at the end of last season, having spent much of the season on loan at Oldham, where he finished the club’s top points scorer with 63 goals and five tries in 14 appearances.

A product of the St Helens academy, Forber made his break through under Tony Benson at Leigh, but enjoyed the best part of his career during his last spell in Cumbria, where he finished the league’s top points scorer in 2007 with 254, before playing and scoring in every Town game in 2008, scoring 229 points in total.

Workington defeated Whitehaven 26-18 to retain the Ike Southward Memorial Trophy on Sunday. The game, originally scheduled for Boxing Day, had been delayed after injury problems left Town short of players.
