Centre back heads to United
Carlisle United have today signed defender Shaun Brisley on a two-year deal which keeps him at Brunton Park until the summer of 2018.
Brisley, 26, came through the ranks at his home town club Macclesfield and went on to make over 125 appearances in his five years on the professional books with the Silkmen.
A half-season loan spell with Peterborough at the beginning of 2012 preceded a permanent move to London Road later that year, and he has enjoyed loan spells with Scunthorpe, Northampton and Leyton Orient prior to being released by the Posh at the end of last season.
Manager Keith Curle said: "Shaun is another we've known about for a while.
"He's another good character who comes to us with well over 200 appearances to his name. He's different to what we have and he's a good, strong defender who reads the game.
"He brings more competition for places and we're looking forward to working with him."
This transfer remains subject to the clearance of all relevant paperwork.
