Workington Reds may have been relegated this season but as the final game looms tomorrow, officials and players are already looking forward to next term and the chance to bounce right back up.

On Monday Reds lost out to Lancaster City in what could have been their last ever game at Borough Park with a new stadium on the horizon.

In front of the best crowd of the season, 689, Reds could not get their fairytale ending they would have hoped for with a 2-0 defeat but the day was a success.

The club showcased all their teams, reserve sides, women’s and juniors, and wore a retro kit, looking back t their proud traditions.

Now we need the fans help. Reds have used a number of players so far this term but who do you think has made the greatest contribution?

The Times & Star and sister paper the News & Star are asking readers to choose their Workington Reds player of the year.

There are a number of contenders for the annual prize, who have played more than 12 times for the club this year.

From goalkeeper Aaran Taylor, who has had to step up to the plate as the last line of defence on a number of occasions, through to his front line defenders.

Matty Douglas has also become as well known for his headed goals as his defensive capabilities comes in, alongside the experienced Dan Wordsworth.

Skipper Gari Rowntree has led from the front with some timely tackles as always with Josh Calvert also returning to form after his injury troubles and Sam Smith continuing to emerge as a key figure.

The midfield has probably been one of the areas that Reds have excelled in with Niall Cowperthwaite winning his fair share of man of the match awards for his consistent performances.

He has been ably assisted by Brad Carroll, Brad Hubbold and Jordan Holt with Dave Symington coming back into contention later on in the season and improving with each game as he returned from injury.

Kieran Maguire proved his worth after joining this season, looking dangerous on occasions with Conor Tinnion showing glimpses of his flair.

And up front Jason Walker has been the mainstay with 12 goals and he has had a number of partners throughout the term, due to injury and unavailability.

Sam Joel put eight in the back of the net, with Scott Allison missing a chunk of the season through injury but returning later on to bolster the side in their relegation fight with nine goals on his tally.

Youngster Sheldon Mossop was also visible coming through the ranks and giving hope for the future.
