But officers, who mounted a major security operation for the grudge match, say it passed off relatively peacefully.

The four, all from Carlisle, have been charged with using threatening words or behaviour likely to cause harassment, alarm or distress.

Paul Dodd, 41, of Currock Road; Matthew Craig Graham, 21, of Blackwell Road; Jamie Blair, 24, of Orton Road; and Michael Anthony Cameron, 24, of Herbert Street; will appear before city magistrates on April 30.

In addition, a 25-year-old woman and a 47-year-old man were escorted from the east stand for drunkenness.

The fixture attracted United’s highest league gate of the season, 5,965, including around 1,000 away fans.

It finished as a 1-1 draw.

England 1966 World Cup winner Jack Charlton was also at the game with his friend, county councillor Alan Toole.
