Taking place on Friday Januray 13, the event which will be hosted by BBC Radio Cumbria’s Mike Zeller, will take the form of a chat show with former-United players who will reveal all about their playing days, and a lot more besides!

Already confirmed on the panel are John Halpin, Chris Lumsdon, Hugh McIlmoyle, Derek Mountfield, Paul Simpson, Steve Soley and Dean Walling – full starting line-up to be announced soon.

The club invites you to pop along and share some memories and stories, and in the best traditions of the game the evening will be played out over two halves.

Steve Dunn, Arts Officer with Carlisle City Council, said: “We have a fantastic facility at the Old Fire Station which is perfect for functions such as this. We’re delighted that Carlisle United have agreed to support our first event of this kind and, as you can see, we already have a very strong and interesting line-up in place.

“We think this will appeal to both football fans and the general public because, in our experience, there are always some fascinating stories to be told by those who have been right at the heart of professional sport.

“Carlisle United has been brilliant and we’ve also received some excellent support from the Carlisle United Supporters’ Groups [CUSG] which has helped us to make this whole thing a possibility. We’re all really looking forward to what should be an excellent evening of entertainment.”
