Defensive legend calls time on Reds

Workington veteran Kyle May has left the EVO-STIK Northern Premier League's Reds after more than a decade of service to sign for Shildon.

The 34-year-old centre-back brought an end to his 12 year career at at the EVO-STIK NPL Premier Division club's Borough Park on Tuesday to join the Northern League outfit.

After turning out in more than 650 competitive and non-competitive games for the Cumbrians, the defender signed off in style last month with Cumberland Cup success over Penrith at Carlisle United`s Brunton Park.

The Reds staged a testimonial match and dinner last season to mark May's loyal service, pictured. Joint Reds managers Lee Andrews and David Hewson will miss May when the 2017-18 season kicks off in August but will be able to call on the services of top scorer David Symington after he put pen-to-paper on a new deal this week.
