Workington have signed local prospect Hanley Dawson on a two-year deal.
Dawson was identified by Town with a number of other local players to spend a full pre-season with the club.
After impressing in the Tri-Counties series for Cumbria and with his impressive attitude and fitness in training, Workington coach Chris Thorman decided to offer Hanley a contract with the League 1 club.
Dawson said: “I feel like now is the right time for me to step up and move my career forward.
“My aim for the upcoming season is to make as many consistent appearances as possible and start to make a reputation for myself in League 1 and kick-start what will hopefully be a successful professional career.
“It’s a proud time for me and my family. Those closest to me know what this opportunity means and I can only thank Chris, the rest of the staff and the bird for committing to me for two years.”
