Ex-Newcastle boss Roeder linked with Carlisle Utd manager's job
Last updated at 11:50, Thursday, 12 September 2013
Former Newcastle boss Glenn Roeder is the latest surprise name linked with the Carlisle United vacancy.
The 57-year-old, who last managed Norwich in 2009, has seen his odds for the job tumble to 5/2. But there is no indication yet either that Roeder is interested in the job or that United are considering his credentials.
The Cumbrians are only starting to sift through the dozens of applications that have come into Brunton Park since Greg Abbott’s departure on Monday.
Among the other names thought to be keen are former Kilmarnock boss Kenny Shiels and ex-Rochdale and Accrington chief John Coleman.
But United have yet to draw up a shortlist, with caretaker boss Graham Kavanagh remaining an obvious contender as he prepares the team for Saturday’s game against Sheffield United.
The United Trust, meanwhile, say they will have input into the decision.
Media officer Frank Beattie said: “Norman [Steel], as the legally elected club board representative of the trust, is empowered to act fully on behalf of the Trust and its members.
“He will take note of what is appearing in the media and with this knowledge will act on what is in the best interests of the club and its fans.”

Have your say
Simmo. Calver. Or Peter Reid. and Lummy as there assistant. finally the Custodians do the smart thing and SELL
I can assure you that my wife would make a great manager of Carlisle United. She never makes excuses, never gives up, is a psychological expert with brilliant tactical awareness, AND is good looking (which wouldn't hurt in terms of motivation). Unfortunately, despite being "Carlisle 'til I die!", she hasn't applied for the job. However, if CUFC ever decide to relocate from Brunton Park - and choose Sussex - this could tip the balance.So, any other great woman with world-class skills out there should get in whilst the job is on offer.
