Worky hits 200 not out!!

This Saturday will see team string bean Lewis Workman make a mammoth 200th appearance for the club.
Lewis is a Huddersfield lad and followed in the footsteps of his Grandad Mike and Dad Greg, who is somewhat of a cult hero among the playing squad.
Having come through the Age Grade system Lewis was thrust into first team duty during the 2014-15 season at Birmingham Solihull.
Lewis quickly put any doubts that his wiry frame could struggle with the physicality of National Rugby and registered a string of impressive displays.
Having spoken to ‘Worky’ during the week he recalls the rapid step up from Age Grade Rugby to the First XV “it all happened pretty quickly, I had trained with the senior squad and had played a number of second team games.
I took a great amount of confidence from my time in the second team and that was vital for my transition into the first team.
When I was given the call it was a proud moment for my family, although I was nervous I felt I had great support from the leaders within the squad”
In the early days Lewis was part of a transitional period within the club which eventually resulted in relegation from National 2 to what was National 3.
Worky believes that although relegation was disappointing it allowed him and other young players in the squad opportunity to enjoy success and build experience, “The season in National 3 was probably my favourite memory, simply because we won every game. We created a strong bond and confidence was high, it gave the club momentum to then be successful in National 2. We managed to finish around mid table in our first season back in National 2, we then added a couple of quality players and finished 4th the season after”
When asked about the clubs current on field struggles he suggested the club had struggled to rebuild momentum post covid “I think Covid played a huge part as we lost a core group of players when the club were unsure of their financial position. It has been difficult to recover from but despite the results this season, a lot of the lads are taking great experience from it and the positive news is the majority have already committed to next season.
I believe it will allow the club chance to regroup and build positive momentum. I am confident with Danny’s experience he will give lads a platform to develop their game, he has already made a positive impression around the club”
Lewis has been an amazing servant to the club and we wish him well for his 200th game this Saturday.
