Workington have suffered another setback with goal scoring midfielder, Joe McGee, accepting an offer to return to former club, Buxton.

“Joe will be missed but we respect his decision and wish him all the best as the next chapter of his career unfolds.”

The Derbyshire outfit, and another Evo-Stik Premier Division club, served a seven day notice of approach for McGee last week with the Merseyside based player agreeing to sign for Martin McIntosh’s Buxton on Monday evening.
 
The player contacted David Hewson to say how hard a decision it was to leave Reds but felt it was an opportunity to put himself in the shop window and reduce his travelling time considerably.

Joint managers, Hewson and Lee Andrews, had tried all they could to keep Joe at the club, including the offer of a contract, but their persuasive powers were in vain.

“We are very sad to lose such a quality player who has been a key member of the squad for the past two seasons,” said Hewson, adding, “he has been a popular member of the group and the supporters love him too.”

“Joe will be missed but we respect his decision and wish him all the best as the next chapter of his career unfolds.”
 
McGee originally joined Workington during the 2012-13 campaign on loan from Morecambe and returned to Borough Park at the start of last season after a spell at the Silverlands.

He made seventy four starts for Reds scoring sixteen goals in the process.
