Jamie Doran commits long-term future to Workington

Workington vice-captain Jamie Doran has penned a new three-year contract at the club.

Doran started his career at Wigan Warriors in Super League and made two appearances, before joining Workington on loan 2015 and he later made the move permanent.

The Cumbrian has been a standout performer for Town since he arrived at Derwent Park, scoring 26 tries in 86 games for the club so far.

And Doran is delighted to pen a contract extension with Workington.

He said: “I’m really pleased to have signed for three years.

“I’m enjoying my rugby at Workington and the club are showing some real ambition as the board have looked to change things on and off the pitch.

“A three-year deal gives me and the club stability and I can concentrate on my rugby and improving my game all the time.

“We’ve got some great lads at the club who are not only team-mates, but good mates so I’m looking forward to where we can go over the next three years. I’ve also really enjoyed being vice-captain this year and it’s given me good experience leading the club with Oliver Wilkes.”

Town coach Leon Pryce thinks Doran is capable of stepping back up to Super League in the future.

He said: “Jamie is an x-factor player and my priority signing.

“He is without doubt the best six in the competition and to have a local lad who is the best in his position and still very young to sign for us for three years is a massive coup.

“I believe that he has the talent and skills to play at the highest level and if he works hard on and off the pitch and continues to stay focused, he will go on to do massive things in the game.

“He is definitely a Super League player of the future and I don’t say that lightly. We’re building a great team with a great mix of the best of local players and experienced hands and Jamie is at the centre of all that.”
