Carlisle City have added former Carlisle United and Workington Reds player Keelan Leslie to their squad.

Versatile Leslie, 20, has linked up with Jim Nichols' side after his recent departure from Workington.

The former United first-year pro joins a host of ex-Blues in the City ranks as they continue their push for success in league and cup this season.

Leslie could make his debut for City in their home clash with West Allotment Celtic at the Three Rivers Health & Safety Consultancy Stadium (Gillford Park) on Saturday.

He could also figure in City's FA Vase campaign with the Cumbrian side preparing for their first ever tie in the third round against Charnock Richard on Saturday week.

Leslie, a United academy product who was in the professional ranks at Brunton Park in the 2021/22 season, went on to join Workington Reds on loan and then permanently.

It was announced two weeks ago that the left-sided player would be moving on from Borough Park.

Leslie will be in good company at City among a range of former Carlisle United players.

Nichols' squad includes ex-Blues such as Scott Simons, Kieron Olsen, Dan Kirkup, Jordan Holt, Dan Hill, Keighran Kerr, Roan Steele and Jay Kelly.

Leslie is one of two new signings to arrive at City, with midfielder Jenson Butterworth also joining on a dual registration agreement with Lancaster City.

City are ninth in Northern League Division One after 14 games.
