MATCH REPORT FROM YESTERDAY
City's six-game winning run came to an abrupt end with a 5-1 defeat at Rylands yesterday. The match report is here.
On a poor day for our senior sides, City Reserves were beaten 6-1 at home by Gosforth, in a game which astonishingly saw four penalties awarded, three to Gosforth. There was a five-goal haul for Gosforth's Jack Denwood.

WEEKEND PREVIEW
It is round 1 of the Macron cup tomorrow, and City travel to Warrington to face Rylands (ko 3.00). They are a new side to the Hallmark Security league this season, in division 1 South, where they currently sit 4th but have led the league at times. They have won five of their last six games, including a very impressive 6-1 victory last week at New Mills. Leading scorer Stuart Wellstead is also the joint-manager and he has 15 goals to his name already.
City are likely to be without Tom Lucock and Marc Gallimore who were both injured midweek in the County Cup, but Michael Slack and David Renyard are nearing a return to full fitness.
In the County League tomorrow, there is a re-arranged fixture at short notice due to County Cup postponements last Saturday. City Reserves are at home to Gosforth, ko 2.00 pm.

MATCH TONIGHT
City meet AFC Carlisle tonight at the D Marks Carpets Stadium (ko 7.30) in the Cumberland Cup. Competing in the Westmorland League division 2, AFC have not actually played since 15th September, and they have recently appointed a new manager in Nathan Doyle.

WEEKEND PREVIEW
For the second successive Saturday, City travel to one of the league new-boys tomorrow with a trip to Huddersfield to meet Shelley (ko 3.00). They were promoted to the Hallmark Security league this season after competing in the Premier division of the West Yorkshire league. Last season was not especially successful as they finished 10th in a league of 16 teams, but they are going well at the new level, currently sitting 5th in the table.
Their player to watch would seem to be Craig Billington who has scored 12 times in 15 appearances. Former Carlisle United keeper Matthew Glennon is registered to Shelley and has played twice this season.
Once again, City will need to make fitness checks on Tyran Taylor and Michael Slack.

MATCH REPORT FROM LAST NIGHT
A report on last night's "interesting" 5-3 win at Holker OB is here.

POSTED 10th OCTOBER 2018

PREVIEW OF TONIGHT’S GAME
In the Hallmark Security League division 1 North tonight, City travel to Holker OB (ko 8.00). This is a ground where City have yet to gain a victory so will be looking to break that run tonight. Holker have endured something of a horrific start to the season including an 11-2 loss at home to Longridge on 15th September. However, they gained their first win on Saturday when they hammered Atherton LR 5-0. In that game, two goals were scored by Chris Wraighte in his first game of the season, and he is a player to have caused City some problems before.
City will make fitness checks on Tyran Taylor, Michael Slack, Tom Lucock and Dan Greenslade.

WEEKEND PREVIEW

City are in Division 1 cup action tomorrow with a round 2 game at Lower Breck (k.o. 3.00). City won 4-2 at AFC Darwen in the 1st round whereas Lower Breck received a bye.
Based at the Anfield Sports Community Centre, Lower Breck were promoted at the start of this season after enjoying a hugely successful 2017/18 season in the Liverpool County League. They were unbeaten in 24 games, winning 22 of them and were league champions by 15 points. Life in the new league has also begun well, with just three defeats to date including a 3-2 loss at home to Avro last Saturday. Peter Donnelly has been amongst the goals with 9 in 12 games.
City may have injury concerns over Tyran Taylor who left the field with an ankle knock last Saturday.
In the Cumberland County League tomorrow, City Reserves go to Cockermouth (ko 2.00).
