It’s amazing what a couple of wins can do for the league position.  From the basement to fifth in the league in just over eight days.  Coach Richard Metcalf will be looking for his charges to grab another couple of league points.  Whilst it is early days, and all to play for, there is only one side unbeaten – the leaders Billingham, and Carlisle have had a taste of their back division!  But, they can take heart from the fact that the Carlisle defenve lealed less points to the north east outfit than any other side they have played.
