At the time of writing this article, Carlisle United is the only club of the English League Two that has not sustained a single league defeat as they have secured 6 triumphs and 7 draws out of their opening 13 matches of the current season.

The latest league match of Carlisle United was against Hartlepool United in a match that was played on October 15 and resulted with Carlisle edging out a victory with a final scoreboard of 3-2.

This victory over Hartlepool United was especially meaningful for Keith Curle and his squad due to the fact that they had to compete with only 10 players in the pitch for almost the entirety of the 2nd half and Carlisle United still managed to come out on top with the triumph despite having fewer players in the pitch which shows just how impressively they have been performing in this season.

Carlisle United coach Keith Curle reflects on his two years in charge of the club in a recent interview.

The 2005 floods is one that cannot be forgotten in the club’s history. The club framed an aerial picture of the old stadium grounds being covered with dirty water. The picture is obvious as visitors move through the glass doors at the stadium.

“It’s two years now, but it doesn’t even seem like a week since I walked into the building and got met with picture of the flood. That is something else that is changing,” Curle said.

“It’s not going to be the welcome now in the football club. Yes, it’s a talking point inside the corridors, but we don’t want it in reception. There’s more to this football club than devastation,” Curle added disapproving of the picture. Curle joined United in the summer of 2014, and he has helped the side since joining.

After the flood, Carlisle were relegated from the League One, then they dropped further as they struggled to win games in the League Two. When Curle is asked to sum up his stay at the club so far, he opined that the club is in need of fumigation. The avoidance of defeats in the current season seems to reflect progress, and Curle seems happy with the new spirit in the city.

Mark Gillespie was in action against Liverpool in the past term and even starred in the League Cup at Anfield but is now ready to face life in the League Two division.

The last season was one that fans and players of Carlisle United would not forget in a hurry as there were a lot of highs and lows.

For Gillespie, it was one memorable moment as he was the hero in October when they faced Liverpool in a penalty shootout in the League Cup. Gillespie was awarded the Man of the Match as he was impressive throughout regular time and saved the kicks of Philippe Coutinho and Adam Lallana, even with the pressure of playing at Anfield.

One of the lows was when he had to be rescued from the first floor window of his house when the floods hit Carlisle. He eventually joined a few other players that volunteered to repair the damage the water did. The club also finished on a disappointing note when they finished tenth in the League Two, flooring hopes of a possible promotion to the League One. Despite not making it to the upper echelon of clubs, Gillespie remained a standout player with his reflexes, agility and distribution prowess.
