PROGRAMME: The Best Ever Goal debate

8 February 2013

The players give their opinion

Your weekend issue of the award winning matchday programme Back of the Net is one not be missed for the visit of Stevenage as we reopen the 'Best Ever Goal' debate in the wake of Dave Symington's stunning strike from our last home game against Scunthorpe.

United boss Greg Abbott fired the opening shot in the post-match press conference when he told the assembled hacks that the unstoppable free kick was the best he had ever seen - at any level!

But was he right? That, of course, comes down to opinion ... and this issue is certainly packed with plenty of that following our trip into the depths of the home dressing room to get the expert opinion.

Dust off those memory cells and see if you agree with some of the suggestions which poured forth ... or is the Symington sizzler the one for you?

As well as that we have an exclusive interview with Eric Kinder as he ponders the months ahead and we spend a few moments with Peter Murphy to find out a few things we would never have guessed about our long-serving centre half.

Priced at just £3, and already the winner of two 'Programme of the Month' awards, we think you'll find that Back of the Net is just what you need on a match day.


We are delighted to announce that Carlisle United’s official match day programme, Back of the Net, is now available to download on your iPhone and iPad via the Matchday Digital App. 

The Matchday Digital App allows you to view the match programme anytime, anywhere. No matter where you are in the world, whether sitting on a train, a beach or in your living room, you can now have the same turn-page experience that you would have in the stadium.

The Matchday Digital App ensures you always keep up to date with The Cumbrians and never miss out on any programmes. You can make one-off purchases or take out a Season Pass so you are subscribed to the whole season. 

If you can’t make the game, simply download the programme on the Matchday Digital App and be part of the game.  The slick digital version comes with all the content you would have in the printed programme but with added features including:

• Programmes available to fans anytime, anywhere
• Download back copies from past games
• Home programmes will be made available for purchase worldwide at 9am on the day of every home game (midweek included)
• Easy to use curl or slide ‘turn page’ technology
• Keyword search taking you straight to a particular player or feature

• Add articles to Facebook or Twitter via the social media feature
• The Matchday Digital App is free to download on to your iPhone/iPad.

United supporters can download an individual issue at £2.99 or take out a Season Pass for £29.99 – the equivalent of two free issues from the twelve programmes remaining this season. 

We are confident that not only will this new digital service bring in new revenue streams for the club but will complement our existing printed programme making it available to a wider reach of fans. 

To celebrate the launch of our digital programmes we are offering you the chance to download a free sampler version of the Accrington Stanley programme from August and the Bournemouth FA Cup programme (a 32-page issue) from just a few weeks ago - so why not give it a try?
