Carlisle United's London-based supporters say they are delighted to have helped improve facilities for disabled supporters at Brunton Park.

The Blues' supporters' club London Branch contributed £500 to the cost of a new home disabled shelter, which has now been completed.

Branch members saw the new facility - situated in front of the Pioneer Stand towards the Warwick Road End of the ground - for themselves at last weekend's game against Swindon.

London Branch chairman Ian Jardine said: "The Branch operates a ’40 Club’ members’ draw, generously supported by the football club when it comes to prizes, and it was able to generate the necessary funds.

"A group of London Branch members and Barry Carter, who runs the Disabled Supporters’ Group, posed for a picture in the new shelter.

"Barry, and Barbara Abbott, had done much of the hard work getting this project to completion.

"The London Branch is delighted to see another element in the improved provision for disabled supporters completed.

"Other projects are ongoing and we look forward to making Brunton Park one of best when it comes to disabled provision."

Matched funding was secured from the city council to complete the installation of the shelter, they added.

The London Branch say they have set aside a total of £2,000 to put towards improvements at Brunton Park, including the installation of RADAR scheme locks the toilets and associated work on alarms.

They say there are also ongoing proposals to extend the disabled provision in the Pioneer Stand area.
