Carlisle have just found out who they will play against in the Pizza Trophy next season. I don’t think anyone cares though.

OK, we got Barrow and Fleetwood Town. Now, if the organisers would just forget including about the Premier League academy teams on Thursday then people might start caring again.

Also on Thursday is the League Cup draw and Carlisle’s new strip will be revealed.

No matter how well trained and experienced you are, water is not a natural environment for humans. Back in the day, we had a young age group swimmer drown during a race because people were not paying attention and no one noticed that she had not come up. I have seen articles making fun of lifeguards at Olympic swimming events as “useless jobs.” Maybe not, eh?

It’s been a busy few days at Brunton Park

We start the season at home against Crypto FC then go to Colchester the next weekend, play at Shrewsbury in the EFL cup, and have home games against Bradford City on Boxing Day and Tranmere Rovers on Good Friday

Is that everything?

We aren’t even going to have the slight possibility of Dean Henderson coming back to Brunton Park to attract a crowd and make things interesting.
