MANCHESTER City's trophies from their historic 22/23 treble-winning season have been displayed in Carlisle

Manchester City's Carlisle and District Supporters Club welcomed the Premier League, FA Cup, UEFA Champions League, UEFA Super Cup, and FIFA Club World Cup trophies to Carlisle's Conservative Club on Spencer Street on Sunday, March 24. 

The local Citizens are fronted by chairman Lance Alexander, treasurer Steven Quinn, and transport organiser Sam Tweddie, with the latter helping organise a bus to take local fans to every single home game at the Etihad Stadium.

News and Star: This trio took over the running of the local group, which has been running for 25 years, from Andrew Booth and Stephen Joyce in 2021.

Sam followed Pep Guardiola, Erling Haaland, Kevin De Bruyne, and co all over the country in their treble-clinching campaign and was in attendance at both the FA Cup final against arch-rivals Manchester United at Wembley Stadium and the club's first-ever Champions League triumph over Inter Milan in Istanbul.

However, he described how having the silverware in Carlisle was still a 'surreal' experience. 

News and Star: He said: "A lot of us went to Istanbul and went to Wembley and saw us lift the trophies but never mind winning the treble, having them in Carlisle was surreal to be honest.

"City is a club that does so much community work and so much with the fan clubs.

"It was good to give the members of the supporters club and those who have supported the branch the opportunity to actually see the trophies and it was good to see people with their kids and younger people have that opportunity."

The event was also attended by representatives from Guide Dogs UK to whom the Carlisle and District branch of the Citizens donated £500 as part of their ongoing charity work.

News and Star: This has seen the non-profit group pool their matchday travel takings throughout the season to make £1,000 donations to Eden Valley Hospice and Carlisle Foodbank over the last two years.

Sam was also keen to thank Carlisle Conservative Club for their help organising the display.
