Grab your piece of history, this iconic shirt was only wore once by Workington Town due to the pandemic!
Where it all began and why these colours!
In 1944 we began our journey. Workington Town RLFC was formed at a meeting held in the Royal Oak Hotel, Workington in December 1944.
Many of Workington Town's board came from our neighbours Workington Reds AFC's board and the teams initially ground shared at Borough Park. It was very fitting to grace our original home again in 2019.
We were the first side from Cumberland to enter the professional rugby league set up and we played our first home game, wearing green and red hoops, at Borough Park which resulted in a crowd of 4,100 as Town came out 27-5 victors over Broughton Rangers on Saturday 25th August, 1945.
The rest - as they say - is history. When the legendary Gus Risman was appointed as player/coach in 1946, we began our journey to the higher echelons of the game. Within six years we had won the Challenge Cup, beating Featherstone Rovers 18-10 in front of over 72,000 at Wembley Stadium.
We were delighted to bring back a part of this great club's history with this shirt and we hope you wear these colours with pride.
A truely iconic shirt forever connected to world history and the effect it had on sport, life and your beloved Workington Town!
