Carlisle signed experienced striker Jabo Ibehre on a one-year deal, with an option to extend (which was triggered last season), ahead of the first day of pre-season in the summer of 2015/16.
Ibehre started his career with Leyton Orient where he turned down an offer to join Spurs, at the age of 15, to stay with the O’s.
He progressed through the youth ranks at Brisbane Road to make his debut at the age of 17 and went on to make almost 250 appearances during his eight-year stay with the club.
He joined Walsall on a free transfer in 2008 and scored 11 goals in his 43 games for the Saddlers.
Roberto Di Matteo took him to MK Dons the following season and he had loan spells with Southend, Stockport and Colchester during his three-year stay at stadium:mk.
Four goals in 15 appearances with the U’s persuaded Joe Dunne to make the move permanent in January 2013 and Ibehre left Essex with a record of 17 goals in 76 appearances, having had loan periods with Oldham and Barnsley.
