A host of new faces were on show for the first time as Carlisle United got their pre-season friendlies under way.

Summer signings Cameron Harper, Terell Thomas, Ethan Robson and the returning Charlie Wyke and Aaron Hayden got their first outings since completing their summer moves.

It was also a first game for some of United's new backroom staff members, such as head physio Sophie Birnie and goalkeeping coach Glen Johnson.

And new keeper Jude Smith was also there as he took part in the pre-match warm-up.

Photographer Ben Holmes was at Penrith to capture the new faces settling into life with the Blues. Click on the image at the top of this article to scroll through a gallery.
