Who are they to diss the Blues?

Carlisle United and Workington Reds have been called many unflattering things, often by their own fans.

But while it’s fine to insult one’s own club, outsiders are not allowed the same privilege.

Australian newspaper The Fraser Coast Chronicle might bear this in mind.

This publication has come to Reiver’s attention following its focus on former Carlisle and Workington midfielder Stephen Hindmarch.

The 22-year-old, from Keswick, moved to New Zealand a year ago to pursue his career.

He has just moved to Australia and joined Sunshine Coast Fire, who play in the Queensland State League.

The article says Hindmarch ‘spent two seasons going nowhere in no-name English sides.’

Well, when you’re writing about a club with the glorious title of Sunshine Coast Fire, even Manchester United must seem like a ‘no-name’ side.

How far would you go to look at a bird?

Very far. Excited when rare birds set up home here

I watch birds through the window and on TV. That's all

Birdwatching doesn't appeal to me. I'd go a long way to avoid a gull though
