Carlisle Utd fans launch crowdfunding bid to boost Keith Curle's transfer kitty




Carlisle Utd fans launch crowdfunding bid to boost Keith Curle's transfer kitty

The crowdfunding page set up by United fans

Carlisle United fans have launched a crowdfunding initiative in a bid to boost manager Keith Curle's transfer kitty.

Members of the Blues faithful have set a target of raising at least £10,000.

If they reach that figure, they say the money will go to Curle to spend on new players before the end of the transfer window.


It follows the manager's public appeal for extra support in order for him to add to his depleted squad before the end of the month.

Curle claimed that only an increased crowd at this weekend's home game against Barnet would create enough funds to make the signings he wants.

Carlisle Utd say fans' crowdfunding bid to help Keith Curle is a "fantastic gesture"


Carlisle United have described a fans' bid to raise £10,000 for Keith Curle to spend on players as a "fantastic gesture".

The online crowdfunding initiative tonight passed the £2,000 mark after less than 24 hours.

It was launched in response to Keith Curle's claim that only a big crowd at this weekend's Barnet game would generate enough funds to make the signings he wants before the transfer window closes.

Barrow Raiders take the bragging rights in Cumbrian derby against Whitehaven



Barrow Raiders 36 Whitehaven 10

There is never really any such thing as a friendly in rugby league – especially when two Cumbrian rivals such as Barrow Raiders and Whitehaven go head-to-head.

The sides will, of course, do battle for points when the 2017 Kingstone Press League One campaign is under way – although not until the final match of the regular season when the Raiders make the trip up the coast to the Recreation Ground on July 16.
Yet, while yesterday's encounter might well have ostensibly served as a warm-up for the main event, there was always going to be more at stake in the minds of those both in the thick of the action on the field and watching from the terraces.

After all, how can there ever be such a thing as a friendly against one of your fiercest rivals?

Workington Reds fans may get to see more of a new signing at Borough Park today



Workington Reds fans may get to see more of new signing Sam Joel at Borough Park today after he impressed on his debut at Matlock last week.

Reds joint manager Dave Hewson has urged the youngster to be patient as he slots into the Workington team but admitted he showed glimpses of real talent.

And, after Joel came on as a substitute and set up the winning goal for Jack Ryan at Matlock, he could be rewarded with more game time this afternoon against Whitby Town, kick-off 3pm.

Former Carlisle Squash Club man and Scotland Coach celebrates a decade on top of Cumbrian squash



quash supremo Paul Bell celebrated a decade on top of Cumbria’s squash ranks by winning his 10th county championship title last weekend.

The 29-year-old took home the championship trophy once again after fending off tough competition from Whitehaven-based player Michael Lowrey.

Bell, who left Carlisle Squash Club last year to take up a role as Scotland’s national coach, won the match 3-0.
It was an impressive win as Lowrey, 24, has been improving rapidly over recent years and has started competing in tournaments on the PSA Tour.

The tournament returned to the city club in Warwick Road this year after being held at Windscale Squash Club, Egremont, last time around because the Carlisle club was out of action following Storm Desmond.

Bell said: “I was really pleased to get my 10th Cumbria Squash title this weekend. I managed to pull it all together when it really counted.”

There was double delight for Carlisle as Paul’s sister Victoria retained her women’s championship.

Aye they are moving along okay,--although they would hope they can convert some of the draws into wins,---still they are doing well--and I'm pleased for them,--cheers.

Stag do depletes Penrith's squad as they prepare to face the Northern League leaders

Morgan Bacon has joined Penrith

A depleted Penrith squad today will host Northern League leaders North Shields.

Boss Jim Nichols will be without a number of his regular first-team players, who will be on a stag do.

But one player that will be in the Bonny Blues' young squad will be Carlisle United goalkeeper Morgan Bacon after a deal to bring the 18-year-old to the club on a work experience package was announced on Thursday.


The Bonny Blues moved to recruit a keeper from their Cumbrian neighbours after goalkeeper Jonny Jamieson picked up an injury in last weekend's 5-0 defeat at Bishop Auckland.

Manager Nichols said: "We are really thankful to Darren [Edmondson, Carlisle academy manager].

"I was talking to him last week about another player and he said he has a goalkeeper. I said 'I don't need a goalkeeper' then I gave him another ring on Saturday evening.

"Hopefully, it will be a good experience for Morgan."

Carl Forber's try is celebrated with Workington Town team-mates

Delighted coach Dave Clark said Workington Town can take plenty of confidence into the new season after clinching the Ike Southward Memorial Trophy from the grasp of neighbours Whitehaven yesterday.

Cumbria's cricket clubs face uncertain future because of climate change



A leading conservation organisation has warned that Cumbria's cricket clubs could face future disruption on a scale similar to that caused by Storm Desmond.

The World Wildlife Fund (WWF) says that increased rainfall and flooding are scientifically linked to climate change.

Keswick Cricket Club was one of many in Cumbria to be hit by flooding in 2015, when the River Greta burst its banks. Appleby Eden, in Appleby, has yet to return to its base because of the extent of the damage it suffered.


The England and Wales Cricket Board distributed more than £1m in emergency funding to flood-affected clubs last year. A further £1.6m is earmarked for this year.

“We were affected badly by Storm Desmond and there's no doubt in my mind that Storm Desmond was a result of climate change,” Keswick Cricket Club chairman Keith Richardson told the News & Star.

"Anyone with half an eye open will see that climate change isn't just a problem in the UK but around the world. There's always something happening somewhere.

Ban means Connor Holliday will miss Whitehaven game with Workington Town

Connor Holliday is sent off after a fight against Barrow

Whitehaven now have a third player suspended for the return game with neighbours Workington Town.

Centre/winger Connor Holliday was handed a one match ban by the Rugby League disciplinary panel for an incident in the second pre-season friendly at Barrow.

Holliday had run to join a fracas and threw a punch which has earned him the minimum punishment. He joins Elliott Miller and Karl Olstrum in missing the League One Cup game with Town at the Recreation Ground a week on Sunday.

Pirelli Rally set to bring boost to Brampton


The Pirelli Rally ceremonial start in Carlisle city centre

International eyes will be on Brampton when rallying returns to the town’s streets.

This part of north Cumbria is preparing to host the finish of the 2017 Pirelli International Rally – and it is hoped the race will bring a welcome boost to the economy.

In recent years Brampton has hosted a sprint of the Tour of Britain cycling race as well as a stage in the Blue Streak Targa Rally, organised by Spadeadam Motor Club.

Both events packed the town centre, with people arriving to see the action.

David Moorat, chairman of the parish council, was “greatly encouraged” by organisers setting their sights on Brampton.

He wants to build on previous successess and expects B&Bs to see an influx of bookings, while cafes, pubs and shops will have more potential customers thanks to the world-famous rally.

“Putting Brampton on the map isn’t our first objective. Our first objective is to help businesses in Brampton survive and do well from such an international event,” said Mr Moorat.

“We’ve earned a good reputation and it really is encouraging to see this being taken up by the Pirelli Rally.”

The rally, which is a key fixture in Cumbria’s sporting calendar, usually starts from Carlisle and returns to the city after drivers battle it out at Kielder Forest.

Fans fall back in love with Carlisle Utd as they topple Doncaster on Valentine's night



Carlisle Utd 2 Doncaster Rovers 1: They’re only human, after all. Doncaster, that is. Keith Curle’s favourite lyrics apply again, but this time to League Two’s leaders, who were cut down on a dramatic night at Brunton Park.

Ten games unbeaten last night played a side without a clean sheet since October and winter form that was giving their fans the jitters. The result: 2-1 to the Cumbrians, an outcome that should breathe plenty of life back into their automatic promotion push.

Where there was no hope against Blackpool, there was ample against Darren Ferguson’s table-toppers. And a good thing, too, since results elsewhere would have wiped out Carlisle’s gap above the play-off places had they not produced this memorable effort on Valentine’s night.

Whitehaven coach Carl Forster targets another flying start against Workington Town

Troy Armstrong

Coach

Carl Forster is looking for another flying start from Whitehaven against Workington Town tomorrow when they meet at the Recreation Ground (2pm).

In the Ike Southward Memorial Trophy game two weeks ago, Whitehaven raced into a 10-0 lead and played their best rugby in the opening quarter of the game.

Forster, who is likely to watch the League One Cup tie from the sidelines, said: “I thought we did a lot of good things in those first 20 minutes. We had a game plan and it was working well.
