Workington Reds manager Darren Edmondson is hopeful that former Carlisle United trialist Stuart Green will sign for the club.

The midfielder, 30, is a free agent after leaving Wycombe Wanderers at the end of last season.

Green had a trial at Carlisle but was released last week.

"We'll see if we can try and produce something for Stuart that he's happy with, and then who knows," Edmondson told BBC Cumbria.

"I've been speaking to Stuart for a couple of weeks now. He's got other options but he knows where I am."

Another potential signing for the club could be Jake Simpson, son of former Carlisle United boss Paul Simpson.

The midfielder is on trial with the Reds after being released by Stockport County.

Edmondson said: "I got a call off Paul last week just to see if he could come to training and join in and that's what he's going to do and we'll have a look at him and give him a chance."

Meanwhile the Reds boss has been impressed with striker Andy Murray-Jones in pre-season.

"He makes some good movements," he said. "At this level he'll be a handful and we know that, he's just got keep improving his game."

Edmondson is not expecting any changes to his squad before their pre-season clash with Hartlepool United on 23 July.

"I don't think there'll be any new faces," he added. "We've enough in there now with the two lads in midfield - Dan Dillon and Mark Boyd - they were the main two we wanted to get.

"We'll rotate people around and then hopefully in the last two friendlies we can have what is hopefully going to be a squad of 18, 19 and then look to push from there."
