Hull FC utility player James Newton has joined Championship One side Workington Town on a dual-registration basis.

The 20-year-old, who can play hooker or loose forward, is yet to make his full debut for the Airlie Birds having joined the club in January 2011.

"James comes to us highly recommended by Lee Radford at Hull," Town coach Gary Charlton said.

"He will be a valuable addition to the squad and offers him the potential of quality game time at a higher level."

Charlton added: "James trained with the lads last night and showed signs that he'll fit in well when called upon."
