BIGGEST WIN OF THE SEASON
City beat Nelson 5-0 last night to record their biggest win of the season last night, as well as recording an early league double over the Lancashire side. Rob McCartney scored twice to take his tally to six. He also missed a penalty, and City's other goals came from Aaron Bradbury, Josh Simpson and Rhys Graham. A full match report will follow soon.

PREVIEW OF TONIGHT'S GAME
City have yet another home game this evening as Nelson are the visitors (k.o. 7.45). City seem to enjoy midweek games as all three league victories have come in night matches, and we go into October with no league win on a Saturday.
City won 4-0 at Nelson in the first away game of the season, and it has been an awful start for the side who were relegated from the Premier division last season. They have collected just two points from eight games so far, although one of them was on Saturday after a 2-2 draw at home to Eccleshall.
Admission tonight is £4 adults, £2 concessions and under 16s are free if accompanied. Carlisle Unitesd season-ticket holders may enter free if they show their ticket.

WEEKEND PREVIEW
In the Hallmark Security League tomorrow, City are at home to Alsager Town (k.o. 3.00). This is a tough game in prospect against a side in 4th place in the table, with six wins and a draw from their eight games. Only leaders Silsden have beaten Alsager to date in the league, and the main danger man would seem to be Oliver Jepson, with his 7 goals in 8 games, as well as accumulating five yellow cards.

In the Cumberland County league tomorrow, City Reserves go to Cockermouth (k.o. 2.00).

On Sunday, in the EDF North league, Carlisle City Deaf meet Farsley Celtic Deaf at Gillford Park (k.o. 2.00).

DISAPPOINTING END TO VASE CAMPAIGN
City went out of the FA Vase on Saturday after a 3-2 home loss to Thornaby. City were ahead at the break following a superb first club goal from Aaron Bradbury. However, Thornaby came out quickly and were soon 2-1 up with a penalty from Hannah followed by a goal from Murphy which looked well offside but was given.
City's Mathew Read headed an equaliser in the 90th minute but, with virtually the last action, James headed the winner from a corner.

City Reserves were beaten 3-0 at Cleator Moor Celtic on Saturday.

WEEKEND PREVIEW

DISAPPOINTING EVENING IN FURNESS
City went down to a 2-1 defeat at Holker OB last night in the Hallmark Security league. The home side had only won once previously this season, but City produced possibly their worst 45 minutes of the season in a tedious first half, where Holker were by far the better side, and Spence scrambled a goal past Ballantyne on the stroke of half-time.
Changes at the break saw Davidson and Wiser replace Armstrong and Hodgson, and City did improve without creating many chances, although Read's well-struck shot was saved comfortably by the home keeper. Davidson was slightly unlucky to concede an 81st-minute penalty which was converted by Mellen and there was then a late rally from City, with McCartney notching his 4th goal of the season.

TOUGH NIGHT IN YOUTH CUP
City's under 18s lost 6-2 at home last night to Morpeth Town in the FA Youth cup. It was a nightmare start for the young Sky BLues as they were 3-0 down within 7 minutes against a razor-sharp Morpeth side, who had won 3-0 against Hebburn Town in the previous round. When a fourth goal was added in the 20th minute, it looked really ominous but the City side worked hard and never let theri heads drop. They were rewarded on the stroke of half-time with a fine goal from a free-kick by Keaton McCluskey.
The second half was far more even, with Morpeth going 5-1 up before Thomas Hickey scored from close range to make it 5-2. Morpeth closed the scoring near the end to round off an impressive display by their side.

SENIORS IN ACTION TONIGHT
City are in Hallmark Security league action tonight, with a trip to Holker OB (k.o. 7.45). City have yet to beat Holker in this league, after a draw and a defeat last season. The Barrow-based side have suffered a difficult start, with just 4 points from 8 games so far and a goal difference of minus 20. They have lost their last three games, conceding 15 goals in the process. City will add defender Tom Short to the squad, and he has been on the winning side in all three of his games so far.
