James Berrett still aiming to contribute with goals

James Berrett insists he’s happy to rein in his attacking instincts for Carlisle – even though it’s affecting his goals tally.

The midfielder has scored just once in the league so far this season – against Portsmouth on August 25 – after two successive campaigns when he hit double figures. But Berrett says he is responding to manager Greg Abbott’s request that he carries out a different role in the Blues’ engine room.

“I haven’t scored as many goals as in the last two seasons at this point, but I’ve found myself playing a bit more defensively at the moment,” said Berrett, who was impressive in last weekend’s win at Tranmere.

“It means I’m not getting as far forward. I still want to contribute with goals and I still think my best position is more attacking, but I’m happy to do the job and I’ll play anywhere. I think I’ve been better recently in the defensive role, concentrating on the simple things, getting the ball off the opposition and keeping it simple.”

United have slashed ticket prices for students for this month’s home clash with Walsall. The Blues have teamed up with the University of Cumbria and Carlisle College to offer all students a discount for the game on Tuesday, February 26. Ticket prices for college students have been cut to £6, and £6.50 for university students, in the Reays Community Stand. The normal ticket price for a young person aged 18-22 is £13. And students can also receive their first drink at half-price if they show their ticket to bar staff between 6.30pm and 7.30pm before the game.

Students can buy their tickets for the Walsall game until 5pm on Monday February 25, either from Carlisle College main reception or from the Student Union office on Fusehill Street.
