Wallwork training with Cumbrians

Former West Brom midfielder Ronnie Wallwork is training with Carlisle United following his release by Sheffield Wednesday during the summer.

The 30-year-old, who is currently without a club, had a 12-game loan period at Brunton Park during the 1997/98 season.

"Ronnie is looking for a club at the moment," Carlisle manager John Ward told the club's website.

"We have agreed that he can come over and train with us."

Wallwork started his career as a trainee with Manchester United, making 10 appearances for the club before joining West Brom on a free transfer in July 2002.

It may be the start of something that moves him elsewhere or it may be that we get something going here

"It may be the start of something that moves him elsewhere or it may be that we get something going here. At the moment it's simply a training session for Ronnie and ourselves."

He made over 100 appearances for the Baggies in a six-year stay that included loan spells with Bradford City, Barnsley and Huddersfield Town.

A free transfer move to Wednesday followed in January but first-team opportunites proved limited and Wallwork was released at the end of the season.

"He knows all about Carlisle of course," Ward said.

"He's been on his travels since then but from a familiarity point of view he knows what it's like up here.

"He's already got to know the group of players and we've got to know him but at the moment it's no more than offering him a bit of training and we'll see where that takes us."
