Carlisle United’s Max Kilsby made his loan debut for Queen of the South in their latest Scottish League One outing.

The young Blues defender came off the bench for the Doonhamers in their 0-0 draw at Kelty Hearts.

Kilsby, who had been an unused sub for his first game with the club, this time replaced Lee Connelly in the 78th minute in Fife.

The mid-table clash ended in stalemate, with 20-year-old Kilsby now up and running for the Dumfries club after his deadline-day move, following his previous half-season stint with Annan Athletic.

Kai Nugent, meanwhile, came off the bench to help Annan to an impressive away victory in the same division.

The United teenager was sent on by manager Peter Murphy in the 79th minute at Hamilton Academical.

Nugent took the place of Newcastle United loanee Michael Ndiweni at a stage Annan were 2-1 up thanks to goals from Tommy Goss and veteran Willie Gibson either side of a Matty Douglas own-goal.

Hamilton levelled through Jake Davidson in the last minute only for Josh Walker to clinch the points for the second-bottom Galabankies, heading home a Nugent cross (see below) in added time for a second win in three games.

For Nugent it was a 14th appearance of the season under Blues legend Murphy.

Workington Reds handed starts to two of their United youth team loanees and had a substitute role for a third in their home clash with Bradford Park Avenue.

Sam Hetherington and Aran Fitzpatrick were in Danny Grainger’s XI with Jake Allan on the bench.

Fitzpatrick played the full game at Borough Park while Hetherington was replaced on 78 minutes as Reds went down to a 2-0 defeat, Allan an unused sub.

Romeo Park got the latest start of his work experience spell for Carlisle City in their Northern League Division One trip to Shildon.

A number of ex-Blues players were in the thick of the weekend action, meanwhile.

Jarrad Branthwaite and Everton were on the receiving end of an Erling Haaland double as Manchester City won 2-0, Haaland shrugging off the Cumbrian’s challenge to score his second of the game late on.

James Trafford was also on the receiving end against a title contender as his Burnley side went down 3-1 at Liverpool.

League One saw a Burton Albion debut for 18-year-old defender Finn Delap, son of ex-Carlisle star Rory, who came off the bench in their 2-1 win at Bristol Rovers.

In League Two, Richard Keogh went straight into the Forest Green Rovers side but his debut ended in a 4-0 home defeat for the division’s bottom side at the hands of Mansfield Town.

Jamie Proctor was shown a red card for Barrow in their 2-0 defeat at AFC Wimbledon, an off-the-ball incident costing the striker.

Andy Cook grabbed a last-minute winner for Bradford City as they won 1-0 at Wrexham.

Keiren Westwood's first game since signing for Crewe Alexandra saw him on the bench as the Railwaymen won 1-0 against Crawley Town to go third.

In the National League, Chris Beech’s AFC Fylde continued their resurgence with a 2-1 win at Eastleigh, a fifth league win in six games under Beech, who is assisted by Nick Anderton.
