The News & Star has launched a Black Friday offer which allows you to subscribe to all our coverage of Carlisle United's new era at a big discount.

You can get unlimited access to the next six months of our in-depth Blues content for just £6.

And, during the offer, a subscription for a full year of coverage is available at half price - just £26.

With the normal monthly price £4.99 and a normal annual cost £52, this offer represents a big saving.


Subscribing for the next six months will take you all the way to the end of the 2023/24 season - a huge period on and off the pitch at Brunton Park, with the Piataks' takeover having now gone through as Paul Simpson's side fight for survival in League One.

While some of our United content remains free to read, such as live match blogs, news and pre and post-match manager comments, our coverage that goes deeper is available to our growing number of subscribers. This includes:-

BIG MATCH VERDICTS - Our regular weekend or midweek take on United games, which goes beyond the basic facts and figures and takes a more reflective look at the Blues' latest showings.

NOSTALGIA - Subscribing means you can access our weekly series marking the 50th anniversary of United's historic 1973/74 season which saw promotion to the top-flight. Plus there are our one-off nostalgia features or series, such as our current mini-series on Blues takeovers and a recent long read on United's eventful play-off history.

AUDIO FEATURES - You can now listen to our regular interviews with the United manager Paul Simpson, players and other figures if you're a subscriber: what are we asking, and how are they answering? Our subscribers were also the first to hear would-be owner Tom Piatak talking about his interest in the Blues.

BIG INTERVIEWS - When we sit down with a Blues hero from yesteryear and speak to them in depth, subscribers can read the results. Over recent years we've spoke to stars such as Stephane Pounewatchy, Paul Proudlock, Bobby Owen, John Gorman, Michael Bridges, Shaun Teale, Brent Hetherington, Glenn Murray and Derek Asamoah.

ANALYSIS - When we take a closer look at a particular United game, or wider patterns concerning the Blues, our subscribers can read these more analytical articles, such as our Monday afternoon reflections on several aspects of the latest Carlisle performance.

OPINION - Most Saturdays in the News & Star brings Jon Colman's weekly Inside Brunton Park column which takes an in-depth look at a particular Blues subject - while other opinion columns are often found through various weeks too, exclusively for subscribers.


As well as allowing you to read all our United coverage and everything else at the News & Star, a digital subscription also gets you a better browsing experience, with fewer ads, quicker loading times, as well as exclusive use of our ad-free app. Subscribing also supports the sort of detailed journalism we always look to offer on the Blues - as we have done throughout the club's history.

There are also reader rewards on offer, as well as puzzles that you can play online.

Our offer is open for a limited number of days only, so don't miss out!
