The #GoodVibrations were felt at a Carlisle school when two Blues players turned up – with 100 match tickets.

The tickets were donated by two businesses as part of United’s initiative for next weekend’s game against Leyton Orient.

That game has sadly now been postponed as the EFL announced it was suspending all games until April 4 due to the coronavirus outbreak.

Before that announcement, Blues forwards Lewis Alessandra and Joshua Kayode were at Kingmoor Junior School during the week to hand the tickets over.

The players, fresh from Tuesday’s victory against Newport, chatted to children and staff.

They were joined by Neil McIntyre from Kingmoor Park and Jim McLinden of North Lakes Energy Group, who teamed up to buy 50 tickets each as part of United’s ticket donation scheme.

Neil’s son Alfie, nine, is a year four pupil at the school and an avid United fan, while his daughter Mollie attends Kingmoor Infants.

Jim’s son Harry, 13, attended both schools and daughter Isabella, eight, is in year three at Kingmoor Junior.

Both businessmen said they were keen to back the club’s initiative, which aimed to encourage more children and families and the wider community to the Orient game.

Neil said: “It’s something we did last year when the club had the initiative for the MK Dons game – we did a couple of hundred tickets for the youth zone that time.

“They approached us this year and it’s something we were keen to do. We’re part of the community and Kingmoor is close to our hearts."

Jim, whose firm is based at Kingmoor Park, added: “My son Harry has been all the way through Kingmoor Infants and Juniors, and my daughter Isabella’s here now.

“It’s a fantastic place and this was a great opportunity to give something back to a school that’s looked after my children so well.

“At North Lakes, we sponsor the academy at Carlisle and have done for a number of years. I see youth as the future lifeblood of the club and any local support for youth in the area is fantastic.”

United players have been visiting a host of other businesses and community groups as part of the initiative, but yesterday announced they were suspending all further activity connected to the #GoodVibrations promotion.
