The Carlisle United manager Greg Abbott has praised the youngsters are the club after they played an instrumental role in the 3-1 victory over Yeovil town during the weekend. Carlisle were coming into this match on the back of a form that has seen them go winless in the last five matches. This has also seen them slip closer to the relegation zone. As a result, the manager made a few changes to the first-team for the visit to Yeovil town. The introduction of youngsters like Mark Beck, Brad Potts, and Dave Symington made a significant difference in the match after they were instrumental in this victory.

The teenage striker Mark Beck opened the scoring in the 21st minute, while he doubled the advantage for Carlisle just after the first half. This incredible performance mean that Carlisle were able to play without much pressure for most of the match. The goal by Reid for Yeovil town in the second half was nothing more than a consolation after Garner scored in the 70th minute to give Carlisle United the comfort of a two-goal advantage going into the final minutes. After the match, the manager praised the quality of the three youngsters, while he wants to build on this success.

“The young players are a huge bonus for us. We’ve seen some big individual performances and that was important. We needed the win and now we want to build on it. Defensively we were much more solid, [goalkeeper] Adam [Collin] has been brave and he’s come for things, made his blocks and made his saves. I think the run Joe [Garner] is on shows why we wanted to keep him here,” said Abbott after the match. The club will now prepare for a tough home match against Bournemouth in the FA Cup.
