Workington Town have reached an agreement with Chris Thorman to extend his contract until the end of 2024.
Thorman had signed a three-year-deal in 2019 but has lost a year of implementing his plans due to the pandemic. This means that Thorman will stay at the club for at least another four seasons.
Reacting to the news, Thorman said: “I’m really happy to extend for a further two years beyond my initial deal. I’m happy and content here, I love being part of the Town community and I want to continue to help mould the club’s future.
“2020 feels like unfinished business and I want to continue with everything that we’d planned. The board have been really supportive and made my job a lot easier so I’d like to give them a lot of credit for my decision.
“I’ve also got an eye on the new stadium and everything that’s planned here in Workington. We’re a town and a club on the up and the stadium will help with sponsors, new fans and attracting players to the club. I’m really happy to stay – these are exciting times.”
Town Director Tom McKeating added: ‘’We’re delighted that Chris has reaffirmed his commitment to Workington Town. We share an ambitious vision for the club, its role in our community, and for the future of Rugby League.
“To deliver on that, its important that the club is building for the long-term and investing sensibly and sustainably. We’ve made big steps in transforming all areas of the club over the last eighteen months – despite the Covid circumstances – and Chris’s leadership will continue to be key to getting us where we want to be.”
