Carlisle took to the road this week visiting North League rivals Morpeth on Saturday 1st November with a somewhat depleted side missing some sixteen squad members. Expectations may have ben a little low, but a big plus was the return of inspirational Captain Mat Davies, alas a bonus short lived as Mat sustained an injury after 20 minutes of play and remained on the sideline for the rest of the match.

Into the fray came our one & only replacement Eddie Faulder (at that point the driver pulled a hammy just in case he was called upon).

A quick spin of the bottle & David Milbourn & Max Connon combine as Captain’s with several cries of I’m Spartacus, which I dealt with very diplomatically, “off & all that.”

For Carlisle it was a game we came away from feeling desperately unlucky having had 70% possesion & territory, which was mush echoed by the home Coaches & supporters.

The 3-0 score lending no justifcation to Carlisle’s efforts, more saddening as the the had in the ruck was a red & white one.

The Colts should take great heart form this game as Morpeth had to repel our attack over & over again, tackling in two’s & three’s to prevent a score.

Morpeth gained great relief at the final whistle as Carlisle had camped within their 5 metre line for the last 15 minutes of play.

To a man, Carlisle gave their all & for marks out of ten then I could go no lower then 9’s, but that would be difficult.

To the lads just keep doing what you are doing & the results will come.
