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.

The head coach of Carlisle United, Keith Curle is believed interested in signing the 32 year old English attacker JaboIbehre who was released by Colchester United on May of 2015.

Ever since JaboIbehre turned into a free agent, he has been linked with a number of clubs that are rumored to be interested in signing the English forward.

The player himself admitted in saying that he doesn’t know what his future will be and which club he is going to join but Ibehre is happy about that as it’s a new challenge which is awaiting him.

“I like challenging myself and that’s one of the things I like about football. As long as everything is right for me and the ambitions are correct, then I’ll consider it.” JaboIbehre said as he said that his future remains undecided at this point in time.

Ibehre has managed to score 93 goals out of 519 appearances from his entire playing career.

JaboIbehre is still in the process of being signed by Carlisle United but they have already made a move in this summer as Keith Curle managed to secure the services of the 22 year old defender David Akitson.

After a string of losses in February, the month of March is starting to look much better for Carlisle United. The team managed their second victory of the month in the 2-0 success over Northampton Town.

Both goals came in the second half for Carlisle as they achieved this unlikely away victory to move themselves three points clear of the drop zone. Jason Kennedy opened the scoring after 69 minutes but it was the goal from Kyle Dempsey – after just two minutes – that made the game safe for the away team. Northampton were not exactly in the middle of a great run of form, but Carlisle were awake in order to take advantage of it.

Northampton have had just two wins in the last five matches, as the players appear to be losing concentration of the play-off places. Manager Keith Curle of Carlisle says that the team came into the match with intense concentration and preparation and it has paid rich dividends. Carlisle maybe looking for more points – but this time at home – when they take on yet another team in the mid-table next week. Morecambe are the visitors to Brunton Park next week. Carlisle will be hoping to continue their good run of form. Continue reading 'Carlisle United starting to look good this March'»
