SEASON PREVIEW | Carlisle United

4 July 2018

With the 2018/19 season fast approaching we thought we would remind you of who we will be facing next season in Sky Bet League Two. Today's team is Carlisle United.

Name: Carlisle United

Founded: 1904

Nickname: The Cumbrians

Stadium: Brunton Park. Capacity: 18,202

Distance from Prenton Park: 126.1 miles

Manager:  John Sheridan

How did they do last season?

It was case of a poor start proved costly for Carlisle in the 17/18 season. Keith Curle's men only managed to register two wins on the board in the first eight games and had to wait until October for any kind of unbeaten run, going six unbeaten. After that run of results it was a patchy Christmas period for The Cumbrians. This may have served as a wakeup call for Carlisle as 2018 only seen them lose four games between then and the end of the season however five of the last seven games resulted in draws and subsequently costing Carlisle any hope they had of promotion via the play offs. Carlisle and Keith Curle went their separate ways and John Sheridan was appointed during the close season.

New Signings at the time of writing:

Joe Fryer, George Glendon, Gary Miller, Macauley Gillesphey

History of results vs. TRFC:

Tranmere wins: 33

Draws: 17

Carlisle wins: 35

When do we play them?

Our first fixture against Carlisle United back in League Two will be away on September 15th  2018  and then the reverse fixture will be on March 30th  2019.
