Inside Brunton Park with Jon Colman

Blues, Seagulls and the experience myth

bridcutt Talented, but raw. Not nearly enough first-team appearances between them. Average age 25, and only just. Could do with a couple more stubbled veterans to pull them through, don’t you think?Third-placed Huddersfield made the clearest declaration of faith in experience, with an average of 28.2, runners-up Southampton a little lower at 27.5. Down among the dead men, Swindon disappeared off the bottom of the table despite a relatively experienced average of 27.2. Similarly, Dagenham with 27.1. Crisis-ridden Plymouth, meanwhile, plummeted with players whose years averaged 24.6.

Why Adam Collin is now Carlisle Utd's prized asset

Carlisle action photo It might go down as one of the great oddities in Carlisle United’s prizegiving history that Ben Williams received a player of the year crown in 2009, but Adam Collin went home from last Sunday’s end-of-term trophy shower without a single, silver pot in his substantial hands.

No. Patients deserve better. We're at risk so long as hospitals aren't good enough

I don't believe hospitals in Cumbria will ever achieve the excellence they've promised
