Three of Carlisle United's trialists will not be awarded deals at Brunton Park, the club have confirmed.

Tyrone Duffus, Elliott Reeves and Isaac Buckley-Ricketts have been unsuccessful in their bid to join the Cumbrians.

The trio have featured in three friendlies, including last night's 0-0 draw at Chester.

Their trial period with the club has now come to an end, United announced today.

Former Manchester City winger Buckley-Ricketts was available for a move from Peterborough.

Ex-Everton defender Duffus, meanwhile, recently left Cardiff, while frontman Reeves was hoping to make the step up from non-league Ilkeston.

Manager Steven Pressley spoke to the players last night after the Chester stalemate.

Another trialist, ex-Wolves defender Aaron Hayden, remains with United having only linked up with the squad this week. He played in the second half against Chester.
