Workington re-sign Fell for 2020

Posted by

Workington Town have confirmed they have re-signed fullback Gabe Fell for the 2020 season.

Fell was previously on loan at the Cumbrian club in 2017 on loan from Wigan Warriors, but he then signed permanently for Swinton Lions in the Championship.

Now, he returns to the League One side, as they look to go one better and reach the Championship.

He told the club website: “I am very grateful for the opportunity that has been offered to me by Workington Town.

“After speaking to Chris and hearing his aspirations for the club it was a no-brainer for me.

“I loved my time at Town last time and I’m excited about meeting up with the lads and getting stuck into pre-season.

Thorman added: “I’ve known of Gabe for a good few years now.

“He’s a product of Wigan’s academy system and played in the same side as Caine Barnes and Dec O’Donnell.

“Full-back is probably the position he’s known for but he’s equally at home on the wing or in the halves and he provides a great deal of utility value.

“I’m excited to start working with him during pre-season and seeing how well he links up with the rest of the playing group.”
