Carlisle City enjoyed their first ever win at Northern League Division One level last night.

Jim Nichols' newly-promoted side came from behind to claim a 2-1 at Thornaby in their second game of the new campaign.

Captain Josh Simpson - nephew of Carlisle United manager Paul - struck the winner with a deflected attempt shortly after ex-Blues defender Dan Kirkup had headed them level.

City had trailed at the break to a Stevie Roberts goal but their impressive comeback sees them on four points from their opening two games, after Saturday's 1-1 home draw with Sunderland RCA.

There was also a first win for Penrith under new boss Darren Edmondson last night.

The Bonny Blues claimed an impressive 3-0 victory at Heaton Stannington.

Former Carlisle United pro Jamie Armstrong struck twice in the first half before Gary Richardson wrapped up the points.

It saw Penrith get on the board at the second attempt after their 2-0 opening-day defeat at Whitley Bay.

The two Cumbrian clubs are in FA Cup extra preliminary round action this weekend.

Penrith host West Allotment Celtic at the Leo Group Stadium, where victory would set up an all-Cumbrian preliminary round tie against Workington Reds.

Carlisle City, meanwhile, are back in the famous competition for the first time in 42 years with a trip to West Auckland.
