Start of 2014-15

As the Friendlies start the ground hopping season begins as so on Friday the 11th of July I made my way to Brunton Park to witness a unadvertised pre season kick about between Carlisle and Southampton U21 taking along my friends Danny and Oliver. We weren’t allowed onto the training pitch to watch but managed to get round the back of the Stadium and watch from the top of the flood barriers. United went on to Win 5-1
On the Saturday I was at the Carlisle United Family fun day selling back stock of Carlisle Programmes and a few other bits and bobs in a effect to raise money for the BBC Cumbria Jigsaw Appeal and clear a bit of the clubs back stock programmes a fair few were shifted although at 20p a time were not going to make a fortune, but every little helps hopefully the programme sales will have influenced the club enough to enable me to do a regular stall on a match day hopefully discussions will take place.

After that it was on to Gilford Park for Celtic Nation V Albion Rovers the game ended in a 1-1 draw which was a fair result in the end Celtic Scored early on and you thought they would put a few past Rovers but it never happened

Sunday and it was up to Gretna for the Raydale Cup the 3rd and 4th Play off Between Stirling Albion and Gretna it ended 4-2 to Albion then Annan and Workington Contested the Final neither side were able to break the deadlock so it went to Penalties but only after Dan Wordsworth had been sent off for Workington for Dissent in the last few minutes, Annan Later Winning 4-2 after Lee Andrews and Phil Mcluckie missing the penalties
