A new date has been set for Carlisle United's Cumberland Cup quarter-final against Penrith, which was postponed last night.

The Blues' game at Frenchfield Park, which fell victim to a waterlogged pitch, will now be played next Tuesday night.

Heavy rain during the day had made the surface unplayable yesterday.

The Cumberland FA last night announced the rearranged date.

The postponement means both United and Penrith will remain in the hat when the semi-final draw is made this Friday.

Also in the draw will be Workington Athletic or Kirkoswald, Cleator Moor Celtic and Workington Reds.

Blues head coach Chris Beech, meanwhile, remains keen to have another look at trialist Callum Harris.

It had not been confirmed whether Harris would have been eligible to play in last night's game.

But the midfielder, who scored in a reserve friendly at Kendal last week, is continuing to train with Beech’s squad.

The United head coach said: “The plan is to have another good look at him.”

The former Manchester City, Blackburn and Wolves prospect, 24, recently linked up with United.

He has most recently been with Spanish third tier side Real Burgos, having also played in Belgium with Patro Eisden Maasmechelen.
