North 2 East League

Saturday, 4th October 2008

After the draw at home against Ilkley last week, Carlisle have been forced into changes to the side because of injury worries to several players.

Carlisle were a shade unlucky to lose last weeks encounter with a dubious penalty award in the dying seconds of the match, but nevertheless there were some heartening signs that improvement is on the horizon.

Martin Burnett

Martin McGimpsey who damaged a calf muscle in the warm up before the Ilkley game has not recovered and that old soldier Martin Burnett, still capable of delivering the goods, steps up for his first senior outing of the season.

The other change in the pack is Lee Brumpton coming in at number 8 for the injured Mark Barron. 

The backs are unchanged from last week.

 

 

Two new boys on the bench though, with Jonathan Strickland as the front row replacement and Ross Olney for the backs.   Scott Rattray keeps them company.

Like the senior XV, the second string have some injury problems, but nevertheless are able to field a good XV for the trip to the north east.

Skipper ‘Hess’ Liddle will be looking for a continuation of the effort levels shown in the match with Tynedale last week.
