Carlisle United recently managed to bring in Lewis Guy on a one-year contract. The 27-year-old striker has said that he is extremely delighted to come to the club and he wants to prove that he is worth more than the one-year he has been offered by the club. As a result of this signing, Carlisle have a very strong strikeforce that already features the likes of Mark Beck, Lee Miller, and Josh Gilles. Guy is a former Newcastle United youth team prospect, who has struggled to establish himself in recent years. He has been on trial with Carlisle United throughout the pre-season.

He has impressed manager Greg Abbott, who is keen on strengthening the team in order to win promotion. Carlisle have been able to sign Guy after the player negotiated the release from his contract with St Mirren. After moving closer to home, Guy has said that he does not want to be complacent and instead wants to fight for a place in the team. The 27-year-old reckons that he is at the right stage in his career to help the team push on for a play-off place in the coming season.

Carlisle recently managed a 4-1 win over Burnley and Guy demonstrated his potential by scoring one of the goals.

“I hope people don’t think I’m coming here just so I can get back home and be here for the ride. It feels nice to be back home around familiar faces and accents, but first and foremost I’m here for my career and to do well for Carlisle United. This is a new challenge for me and I’m not here just because it’s given me the chance to move back home. I’m only 27 and a lot can happen in football,” said the striker, who is a favourite to start against Leyton Orient on the first day of the season.
