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 passing game the manager enforced in the team ensured they were different from the rest in the league as they passed the ball around. In the lower leagues, he is seen as one of the raw goal keeping talents. This has made a lot of clubs signify interest in the player. Charlton Athletic are hoping to get the player to agree to a transfer move worth £150,000. The talented shot stopper started with Newcastle United but was released for his small stature when he was only 16. He had issues with his knees in his early years but has gone on to establish himself as one of the good players in the lower English leagues.
