Workington Town have named former Barrow and South Wales Scorpions boss Dave Clark as head coach, following the departure of Phil Veivers.

Veivers was unable to salvage Town's Championship status in 2016, and because of "financial constraints" was not offered a new contract.

Clark has also worked with Wales as performance manager and with the Rugby Football League's Cumbrian academy.

"The directors shared their ambitions with me and I was impressed," he said.

During his spell at Barrow, Clark won the 2009 Championship minor premiership and Grand Final, in addition to a Northern Rail Cup final appearance.
