Corry Evans Happy with Strong Start Made by Blackburn

Corry Evans claims that he is extremely pleased with the start of the season made by Blackburn. Under the regime of Tony Mowbray, Blackburn have been able to make a decent start of the Championship campaign by staying unbeaten in the first five matches. They have been able to pick up two victories and three draws in these five matches. As a result, Blackburn are in the play-off places of this early part of the campaign. After having just received a promotion from League One, there is a huge challenge awaiting Blackburn in the 2018-19 campaign since the team has to compete against vastly superior teams and still hope to see their Championship status remain intact at the end of the campaign.

The 28-year-old midfielder says that the substantial strengthening to the midfield provided by Tony Mowbray during the summer transfer window has certainly helped Blackburn cope with the superior class of opponents. Some of the latest signings by Blackburn in the midfield positions are Harrison Reed and Jack Rodwell. At the same time, this has also increased the competition for places – especially amongst midfielders – but Evans is not worried at the prospect of having to fight for his spot since he says that it will only help the team in the long run.

Carlisle United suffered a loss against newly promoted side Lincoln City over the weekend but impressive star Reggie Lambe was on target yet again.


Lambe netted his third in as many games in the Sky Bet League fixture this campaign. The Cumbrian side suffered their biggest loss this term as they crashed 4-1 away at Sincil Bank.

Lincoln went ahead through Alex Woodyard, who scored a 22-yard screamer. The score line did not change until the break. In the second half, they dominated and got more goals.

Matthew Rhead intercepted a Tom Parkes pass and sent it to Woodyard who scored. Rhead also got on the scorer’s sheet as he converted a penalty awarded to them. The visitors scored what later proved to be just a consolation through Lambe. Billy Knott came off the bench to net the fourth for the hosts with a long range effort.

League Two side Carlisle have confirmed the signing of Tom Parkes from Leyton Orient.


The defender agreed a two year deal with the Os after leaving his former club at the end of last season. The 25-year old plays dominantly in the centre half role. He featured in 44 games last season but Orient were relegated from the football league so he had to look elsewhere.

Current manager of Carlisle Keith Curle said that Parkes has the experience and that the player is hungry to achieve things. He praised the player’s communication skills as well.

“We’re all looking forward to working with him because we think he will have a positive impact on the group,” Curle added.

The player is a product of Leicester academy and has played in various sides that include Burton, Yeovil, and Bristol Rovers. He was on loan at the Rovers but the deal was made permanent in 2012 and he eventually became the skipper. He joined Orient last year but he was not able to keep them afloat.
