Under 15’s v Tynedale

This fixture was rearranged to play at Tynedale, because the Warwick Road pitch was unplayable. A depleted U15’s squad turned up with 5 recruits press-ganged from the U14’s (more of which later). Carlisle started with a strong tail wind, and within a minute Adam had run from his own 22 to score. Henry converted. Four […]

CARLISLE V ASPATRIA Saturday, 20th December 2008     Local derbies always arouse passion and the fixture at Warwick Road on Saturday will be no exception.  In the first exchange of the season at Bower Park in September, the black reds just edged it.  Carlisle will be looking for revenge to maintain their progress ahead […]

Underfoot conditions were very heavy, and weather-enforced postponements meant that this was the first match for three weekends, match fitness was conspicuous by its absence. However, Carlisle stretched their unbeaten run to eight games, doing it the […]

Saturday, 13th December. Having done the double over ‘Boro last season, there was hopeful expectation that a similar feat might be on the cards this time round.  It was not to be though and in the end, despite a spirited performance, the league spoils had to be shared.  Given the circumstances that was probably a […]
