Workington Town have signed centre Daniel Rooney from Maryport for the 2012 Championship One season.

The 22-year-old amateur, who can also play in the second-row, joins Peter Lupton and Jamie Thackray as the new arrivals at Derwent Park.

"Dan is an excellent utility player who is exactly the type of player Town are looking for," director Malcolm Allison told the club websiteexternal-link.

"He's a great addition to our squad as we push for promotion this year."

Town have also re-signed Darren King following an injury-hit 2011 campaign, with the 29-year-old making just four appearances.
