Oliver Wilkes has returned to Workington to be an assistant coach at the club.
The 39-year-old retired at the end of last season after making 500 career appearances for Huddersfield, Keighley, Leigh, Whitehaven, Wigan, Widnes, Wakefield, Harlequins, Barrow and Workington.
A former Scotland international, Wilkes will become one of Chris Thorman’s right hand men at Town in 2020.
Wilkes said: “I had to retire through injury last season when I didn’t want to.
“I thought I had another year in me so its great to be back at Town and with a great bunch of lads.
“I’m really enjoying working with Chris, Neil Frazer, Paul Halcrow and the others.
“I’m here to primarily work with the forwards and bring experience from my playing career.”
