Keith Curle: Carlisle United are not the soft touches of years gone by



Manager Keith Curle believes Carlisle United are no longer the soft touches of years gone by.

The Blues boss has been delighted with his side's battling qualities in their back-to-back victories.

And Curle reckons some previous eras at Brunton Park have not measured up to his team in terms of aggression and courage.

"Tony Hopper? He's one of the strongest characters I know"
Ahead of an emotional day at Carlisle United, Rory Delap says his close friend and former team-mate, who has been diagnosed with motor neurone disease, deserves a great reception




Rory Delap is invited to throw off the years and remember the young Tony Hopper. He warmly accepts. "He was quite small, an aggressive little sod," he says. "He was one of them you couldn't shake off. Better to have him on your team than against you."

As Brunton Park prepares for one of its most emotional recent occasions - Hopper guest of honour at the stadium just weeks after being diagnosed with motor neurone disease - a football community pays tribute to both the player and the man.

Delap does so fondly, and with feeling. The two have been close friends ever since their junior days and while the recent news has been devastating to many, the queue of people willing to say good things about Hopper appears endless.

Longtown badminton star Lauren Smith vows to fight on in 'true Cumbrian' fashion after UK Sport funding cuts



Badminton star Lauren Smith has vowed to fight on after her sport lost their appeal following UK Sport funding cuts.

It was one of seven disciplines to see their appeal against cuts rejected this week, ahead of the Tokyo 2020 Olympic and Paralympic cycle.

It means badminton’s funding has been cut to zero after they received more than £5m in the four years running up to the Rio Olympics, despite Marcus Ellis and Chris Langridge getting one of Great Britain’s 67 medals in Brazil in the men’s doubles.

Badminton star Lauren Smith has vowed to fight on after her sport lost their appeal following UK Sport funding cuts.

It was one of seven disciplines to see their appeal against cuts rejected this week, ahead of the Tokyo 2020 Olympic and Paralympic cycle.

It means badminton’s funding has been cut to zero after they received more than £5m in the four years running up to the Rio Olympics, despite Marcus Ellis and Chris Langridge getting one of Great Britain’s 67 medals in Brazil in the men’s doubles.


Smith, of Longtown, partnered Heather Olver and was knocked out in the group stages but the pair did win their final match. She will fight back from the funding blow.

She said: “Personally, I’m still hungry to achieve more and want to go to another Commonwealth Games and Olympics, this time as a medal contender.

Carlisle United end 'long-standing talks' with potential overseas investor




Carlisle United end 'long-standing talks' with potential overseas investor

Andrew Jenkins

Carlisle United tonight announced "long-standing talks" with a potential overseas investor have now ended - 650 days after the original approach.

In a joint club and Carlisle United Official Supporters' Club (CUOSC) statement, the Carlisle owners say they decided the proposal "did not present a way forward they could support", despite an investment proposal and then an offer being submitted.

The identity of the potential overseas investor, described as a "billionaire" early in the saga, was not revealed in the statement.
This is despite chairman Andrew Jenkins promising to reveal who the mystery person was at the end of the saga.

But the club say legal issues are preventing them from doing so at this stage.

Penalty miss costly for Workington Reds as Skelmersdale snatch win



Workington Reds 0 Skelmersdale United 1: Rock-bottom Skelmersdale United were the only ones celebrating at Borough Park last night as they turned over Workington Reds in a scrappy uneventful contest.

This was only the visitors’ fourth victory of the season but in the end they deserved the points.

Workington never really got started in this game. They were crowded off the ball by a strong Skelmersdale defence at every opportunity.

Brilliant Carlisle United fans' fantastic feat to help Tony Hopper
Thousands raised for appeal after former Carlisle United player's return to Brunton Park




Generous Carlisle United fans raised more than £2,800 to support former player Tony Hopper's mission to help the battle against motor neurone disease.

The former Carlisle United has been diagnosed with the devastating condition, but is determined to help ensure others do not have to endure the same heartache his family is having to.

And he has set out to raise £10,000 for the Motor Neurone Disease Association, supported by the News & Star's Fighting Back For Tony Campaign.
Tony, 40, made an emotional return to Brunton Park for last Saturday's game against Portsmouth, where he was guest of honour.

Touched by his bravery in facing up to - and going public with - his illness, fans gave generously to bucket collections. United chiefs also donated part of the proceeds from programme sales to the cause.

Mega ironman hits halfway mark with 50th marathon in 50 days



Mega-iron man Gary Mckee is halfway through his tough challenge to run 100 marathons in as many days.

Gary has vowed to take on the gruelling task to raise money for charity in memory of his father, Victor, who would have been celebrating his 80th birthday this year.

And so far the 47-year-old has notched up more than 1,400 miles, raising nearly £20,000 along the way.

He has now hit the 50th day of his feat, but has admitted it is an extremely difficult task.

"It was always going to be tough to run 100 marathons in 100 days," said Gary, of Cleator Moor.

"There's been some difficult moments, but you've just got to get on with it and carry on."

Reds defender Jake Simpson


Jake Simpson insists Workington Reds cannot underestimate Marine tonight after last week's dismal defeat against bottom side Skelmersdale United.

Simpson was disappointed Reds did not have the chance to put last Tuesday's 1-0 loss against Skem right at the weekend as Saturday's game against Halesowen Town was postponed due to a waterlogged pitch.

But he believes they have learned their lesson ahead of a crucial run of games.

Mum and daughters swim for Diabetes UK



A mum and her daughters are swimming 22 miles – the equivalent of swimming the English Channel – to raise funds for Diabetes UK.

Tine Boving Foster, 53, and daughters Rebecca and Christina, are taking part in Swim 22 to raise awareness of diabetes and to help Rebecca get back into exercise following her diagnosis with Type 1 diabetes in December.

Tine, of Matterdale, near Ullswater, said: "Rebecca was diagnosed in mid-December while we were on holiday in Namibia. After being unwell on the flight, things quickly deteriorated and she was quickly rushed to hospital.
"The diagnosis was a shock to all of us but we were lucky as Rebecca received excellent medical care while we were there."

"Rebecca has always been into sport, especially running but before she was diagnosed she had an injury which prevented her from being active.

"We thought this challenge would be a great opportunity to support Rebecca to get back into sport and one that we can all take part in.

Cumbrian rowing club took to dry land to raise charity cash



Members of a north Cumbrian rowing club swapped the calm waters of Talkin Tarn for dry land.

The rowers, from Talkin Tarn Amateur Rowing Club, dropped their oars to undertake a mammoth challenge in Carlisle.

About 40 rowers joined forces in the city centre to row a combined 100,000m over the weekend, albeit on fixed machines rather than in boats.


Working as a team, each member completed a 500m stretch before handing over the reigns. They completed the challenge in eight hours.

It is the first time that the club - established in 1859 - has attempted such a challenge using rowing machines, known as ergometers.

“We wanted to do something different,” club member Julius Deane told the News & Star.
