Carlisle United just recently concluded a poor season in the league, which saw them finish only in the 17th position. However, there have been several positives along the way, and manager Greg Abbott has said that one of them is the rise of youngsters within the squad. He has said that the youngsters who have been given a chance in the first team this season have done extremely well. Hence, he will be giving a preference for these players over the possibility of bringing in veterans in the summer transfer window.

Alex Salmon and Jack Lynch are some of the promising players within the squad. They will be joining with the first team that already has players like Mark Beck and Dave Symington. As a result of the arrival of these players, Abbott will be able to claim that he oversaw a flood of youngsters from the youth academy after a long time. He has said that he will not be using all youngsters at once, but he is confident that they will get regular game time as the season progresses.

Abbott has also been on the lookout for a couple of players to sign in the transfer window with emphasis placed on speed and energy.

“Nobody would want me to dismiss them for next season and say I’m going to go out and get journeymen to do the job they could be doing. If we can’t get better, they’re going to go in. I don’t think I’ll be playing all of them at once but they’ll be miles better for the season. They have all got ability, they are all good players. The next stage is to get into the team and get used to playing in front of crowds,” said Abbott. Carlisle won only three out of their last 10 matches.
