It was an unforgettable night of Carlisle United nostalgia - and all for a fantastic cause.

Heroes from the Blues' 1994/5 season returned to the city for a much-anticipated reunion.

They received a warm welcome from a sell-out audience at Harraby Catholic Club on Saturday.

And the night also helped raise thousands for Eden Valley Hospice in memory of former United favourite Tony Hopper.

It was a celebration of the team that won the Division Three title and went to Wembley for the first time in the club's history in the Auto-Windscreens Shield.

Manager Mick Wadsworth was there along with players Tony Caig, Darren Edmondson, Tony Gallimore, Derek Mountfield, Dean Walling, Richard Prokas, Rod Thomas, David Currie, David Reeves, Jeff Thorpe, Jamie Robinson, Paul Murray and Ian Arnold plus youth coach David Wilkes - while Tony Elliott also joined his team-mates on a video call.

Former BBC Radio Cumbria commentator Nick Barnes interviewed the players on stage as fans relived a memorable and entertaining United era.
