Some excellent news for Cumbria, from the News and Star:

Quote:
Tour of Britain's £5m boost for Cumbria



THE Tour of Britain cycle race was worth £5.36m to Cumbria's economy, new figures show.

The county hosted stage two of the race in September, when the 117-mile route from Carlisle to Kendal took in many of the areas worst affected by last winter's floods, including Cockermouth and Keswick.

Figures compiled by data analyst Frontline suggest that the economic benefit to Cumbria of £5.36m was greater than on any of the previous six occasions that the county has hosted the event.

Hotels, retailers and transport all benefited.

This year’s Cumbria stage was watched by an estimated 175,000 spectators, up from 105,000 the last time Cumbria hosted the Tour in 2015.

Frontline also found that:

* 60 per cent of visitors came from outside Cumbria and 34 per cent stayed overnight;

* Average spend by overnight visitors was £98 per group;

* 89 per cent of visitors described the race as “very enjoyable”;

* 58 per cent said they were inspired to cycle more often;

* 1.165m viewers watched television coverage on ITV4.

The undoubted highlight of the stage was the brutal climb of The Struggle to the top of Kirkstone Pass, where spectators lined the road to urge the riders on.

Sports clubs in the city thriving with Carlisle United, Carlisle Cricket Club and Carlisle Rugby Club all topping their leagues



2 December 2016 11:41AM

Sport in Carlisle is thriving, with three of the city's main clubs sitting top of their respective leagues.

Carlisle United Football Club, Carlisle Cricket Club and Carlisle Rugby Club have all contributed to a hat-trick to remember for supporters of Carlisle sport.

All three clubs were hit by Storm Desmond last December - but all three have bounced back in incredible style, too.


When the clean-up operation was under way at the cricket club's Edenside ground earlier this year, they could have hardly dreamed for a better season.

But after two seasons in Division One of the North Lancs & Cumbria Cricket League, they will return to the top table next campaign after winning the league.

A remarkable year saw Ben Davidson strike back-to-back home centuries and Alex Raybould make history when he became the club’s first bowler to take all 10 wickets in a match, which were some of the highlights in a superb campaign.

Plans are now being put in place for next year as the club celebrates reaching a major milestone.

Carlisle United knocked out of FA Cup by Rochdale

3 December 2016 5:00PM

Carlisle Utd 0 Rochdale 2: Second-half goals from Steven Davies and Nathaniel Mendez-Laing saw Carlisle United knocked out of the FA Cup by Rochdale.

The League One side became the first team to beat the Blues at Brunton Park this season in the second round tie.

Davies gave them the lead on 49 minutes when his deflected effort beat Mark Gillespie.

And sub Mendez-Laing drilled home a low finish in the third minute of injury-time to send Keith Hill's team into Monday's third round draw.

In front of a 4,426 crowd, Carlisle threw plenty at Dale but struggled to force clear-cut chances, especially once the visitors had edged in front.

The Bluebirds came from a goal down to claim their first win at Bristol and their first away from home against Football League opponents in the FA Cup.

Some 374 fans made the journey to back AFC and they were treated to a memorable afternoon in the West Country."

Workington Town in talks with Super League clubs over potential pre-season friendlies



6 December 2016 11:02AM

Workington Town are in talks with two Super League clubs over potential pre-season friendlies.

Currently Town have just one planned clash, the Ike Southward Memorial Trophy against Whitehaven on February 5 at Derwent Park.

But they are hopeful they will get another one or two run-outs before the League One season kicks in.
Director of rugby Les Ashe said: "We are in negotiations with a couple of Super League sides, so we will see what comes of that.

"But we would hope to get a couple more friendlies planned in."

The club is also still looking to further bolster the squad before the start of the season.

They are currently in negotiations with four players and are keeping a sharp eye out for more that will fit the bill.

Ten-man Carlisle Utd hold on for battling point at Luton after Raynes sent off



10 December 2016 5:56PM

Luton Town 1 Carlisle United 1: Ten-man Carlisle United held on for a point against promotion rivals Luton after Michael Raynes saw red in the second half.

The centre-back was dismissed for what appeared to be deemed an elbow on Danny Hylton in the 83rd minute at Kenilworth Road.

Manager Keith Curle said he would review footage before deciding whether to appeal the decision which will rule Raynes out of the next three games.


After his dismissal, the Blues survived late pressure in 10 added minutes to claim a battling draw as they remained second in League Two.

Jason Kennedy had given United the perfect start with a fifth-minute goal at Luton before Hylton quickly hit back.

The Blues then lost both Mike Jones and Danny Grainger to injury on a draining afternoon in Bedfordshire.

Brisley wonder goal helps Carlisle Utd to victory against Yeovil



17 December 2016 5:01PM

Carlisle Utd 2 Yeovil Town 1: Carlisle United kept up their promotion challenge with a tight victory against Yeovil at Brunton Park.

A wonder goal from Shaun Brisley and a Charlie Wyke header put the Blues in command at the break.

Nathan Smith's goal in the 47th minute then made it an edgy second half.

But Keith Curle's side held on to remain second in League Two at Christmas,

Brisley opened the scoring with a memorable effort after 10 minutes.

The centre-half beat keeper Artur Krysiak with a dipping volley from more than 30 yards out as United stunned their visitors.
The sweetly-struck effort was Brisley's first United goal.

There was almost an equally impressive second eight minutes later.

But Shaun Miller's deft chip came back off the crossbar, as Nicky Adams put the rebound over.

Wyke, though, made no mistake on 36 minutes when he met an Adams corner and powered home a header.

Carlisle Utd boss: Veteran Derek Asamoah "desperate" to force his way into team



Keith Curle insists veteran Derek Asamoah isn't at Carlisle United simply to make up the numbers in the Blues' promotion push.

The Blues manager says the striker, who has extended his short-term deal at Brunton Park, is "desperate" to force his way into the side over the festive period.

Asamoah has so far made eight appearances including just one start since he rejoined the club in October.

Curle, though, handed the 35-year-old a further month's deal as the Ghanaian competes with Shaun Miller, Jabo Ibehre and 14-goal top scorer Charlie Wyke for a place up front.

United's boss suggested Asamoah's latest deal was to ensure United have enough depth until the transfer window opens - but he also says the striker can make his mark.

Asked why his latest deal was for one month after his initial contract was for two, Curle said: "Basically to get us to January.

Carlisle United eye top spot in League Two again as they travel to Crewe on Boxing Day



Boss Keith Curle is looking forward to the festive period as Carlisle United aim to go top of the League Two table on Boxing Day.

If the Blues overcome Crewe and current leaders Plymouth Argyle lose to Wycombe, United will move back to the top of the pile.

The Blues have sold over 1,200 tickets for their Boxing Day clash at Crewe’s Alexandra Stadium.
“As a football club, we travel very, very well,” Curle told the Blues website.

“I’ve also got to say, the 4,800-5,000 loyal supporters we are getting at Brunton Park week in and week out are very much appreciated.

“I can see them, I can hear them and I can feel them behind me. The terraces are alive. There is a buzz about the terraces.”
“When I first came, I could hear the grumbles,” he added.

His exuberant celebrations eventually earned the striker a yellow card.

But the Blues were pegged back shortly before half-time when Cooper beat Mark Gillespie with a 30-yard free-kick.

Carlisle held on under some strong home pressure at times after the break, Gillespie making some brave late saves.
