The CUOSC Cup has generated plenty of interest and we are off the ground and running.

Several teams have already entered with others looking to get involved in the end of season six-a-side tournament on Brunton Park. Well, who wouldn’t want to play on the hallowed turf?

The tournament on Sunday, April 26 is for all fans of football, not just Carlisle United.

There will be a men’s tournament and the exhibition pitch will feature walking football and disability games. We are likely to have some girls squads signed up soon but we would like more – so please get in touch.

For the men’s tournament you have to sign up as a team but if you just want to have a go at walking football or take part in the disability games you can enter as an individual.

We are working with the club and our partners (CUSG, Cumbria Pride, Fans for Diversity and Kick it Out) to make it a great day out for everyone.

Meanwhile, United should be congratulated for the #GoodVibrations ‘Beech Boys’ initiative for the next home match against Leyton Orient on Saturday week (March 21).

Local businesses and supporters groups are backing the ticket discounting scheme and the Blues are hoping for a bumper crowd.

Head coach Chris Beech wants to finish the season on a high and strikers Omari Patrick and Joshua Kayode showed against Newport in midweek they have the pace and skill to get the fans buzzing.

United are targeting future generations of supporters with free tickets for under 7s as usual, juniors £2 (7-17) and young person’s £5 (18-22). Adults and seniors are also being offered big savings with tickets priced at £10 and £5 respectively.

We are a community club and this is a great chance for fans to show their support.

CUSG (Carlisle United Supporters’ Group) are hosting a Fans Forum in Foxy’s restaurant at Brunton Park on Friday, March 20.  Head coach Beech, Gavin Skelton and Director of Football David Holdsworth will be on the panel. To book tickets go to
