A look at some of the latest news and rumours from across Carlisle United’s division.

SUTTON’S FOUR-MAN SWOOP

Sutton United have handed deals to four players who have been on trial with the south London club.

Defender Tobi Ogundega is the latest, the former MK Dons man having impressed in pre-season.

His deal follows those for defender Matt Ridley, winger Luke Gambin and striker Tope Fadahunsi.

The moves come ahead of Sutton’s league opener against Newport County.

STAGS STRIKER SET TO LEAVE

Mansfield Town boss Nigel Clough says striker Danny Johnson looks set to leave the club.

The former Leyton Orient man is the subject of talks over a departure from the One Call Stadium.

“We are trying to get to the finer details of a deal for him. I don't think we're too far away so we're hopeful something might get done this week,” said Clough in the Chad.

“I think it will be best for everybody. Danny has never been a problem for a minute while he has been here. It's just sometimes in football it sometimes doesn't quite work out.”

EX-UNITED MAN BEATS INJURY SCARE

A foot injury had put Walsall’s former Carlisle United midfielder Joe Riley at risk of a lay-off.

But boss Michael Flynn has allayed concerns over the summer signing.

“We’ve had some good news with Joe Riley,” said Flynn in the Express & Star.

“His scan results have come back clear. He was one we were fearing could be out for three months.”

FORMER RANGERS MAN SET FOR MOVE

Left-back James Maxwell is poised to join Doncaster Rovers, report Football Scotland.

The former Rangers defender, 20, has impressed the relegated Yorkshire outfit on trial.

And, despite interest from other clubs, a permanent move to Donny now appears to be on the cards ahead of the new campaign for the ex-Queen of the South loanee.

FRY SLAMS “DISRESPECTFUL” STAR

Peterborough director of football has described Ryan Broom as “disrespectful” for turning down the chance of talks with Mansfield.

The League Two club were interested in the transfer-listed midfielder and had agreed a fee with Posh.

But Broom has knocked back the interest and Fry told the Peterborough Telegraph: "The deal with Mansfield was a good one, but Ryan wouldn’t even speak to them which was disrespectful in my opinion.

“There are not exactly a lot of clubs queueing up to sign him.”

BARROW FRONTMAN SEES RED

Barrow’s latest friendly brought the unwanted feature of a red card for one of their key players.

Striker Josh Gordon was sent off in the 1-0 defeat against Fleetwood Town after a challenge on opposition player Dylan Boyle early in the second half.

Boss Pete Wild told his club’s media channels it was a “ludicrous decision” from ref Seb Stockbridge.

On the injury front, meanwhile, ex-Carlisle men Patrick Brough and Richie Bennett are being assessed.

POOLS LAND LIVI FRONTMAN

Hartlepool United have brought in forward Jack Hamilton on a season-long loan from Livingston.

There is an option to make the deal permanent.

Pools, though, have opted against signing trialist winger Ben Tollitt.

The former Everton and Portsmouth man had featured for the Monkey Hangers in pre-season.

But manager Paul Hartley told the Hartlepool Mail: “We’ll not be taking that one any further.”

WRIGHT MOVE FOR SULPHURITES

Harrogate Town have added former Grimsby Town winger Max Wright to their squad.

He has featured at right-back for the Sulphurites in pre-season and did enough to earn a deal.

"I want to bring excitement on the pitch, I like to go out and drive at people, I'm very attacking and always look to get the ball into the box," Wright told the Harrogate website.
