Workington Town have unveiled former England international Leon Pryce as the new coach at Derwent Park.

The 36-year-old has just called time on a playing career that saw him win four Grand Finals, six Challenge cups and 17 Great Britain caps.

Pryce has signed a two year deal and will be aiming to drag town out of the third tier next season:

It’s a great move for me and it’s good to get a chance in coaching. I’ve only been retired for six months, so it’s nice to get the opportunity so early.

It’s maybe a little sooner than what I expected, to get my first coaching job, but I think it’s the right opportunity for me. It’s a good level for me to start at too and a good club in Workington."
