Championship side Workington Town have renewed their development partnership with Super League side Wigan Warriors.

The dual-registration deal was formalised between clubs in March.

Wigan forward Greg Burke, who has joined Hull KR on loan for 2015, was among a number of players who spent time with the Cumbrians last season.

"We are very comfortable trusting Workington with our players ," Warriors general manager Kris Radlinski told the club website.external-link

Phil Veivers, a former Wigan assistant coach, was appointed Workington boss earlier this year.

The ex-Salford boss, who took over at Derwent Park following Gary Charlton's resignation, led Workington to a top-eight finish in England's second-tier competition.

"Phil Veivers understands what Shaun Wane wants from his players so there is no confusion as to how they should be playing," said Radlinski.
