LOAN: Midfielder heads north of the border

Salkeld to join Peter Murphy at Annan

31 January 2018

Carlisle United midfielder Cameron Salkeld has today signed a half-season loan deal which will keep him with Scottish League Two play-off hopefuls Annan Athletic until the end of the current season.

Salkeld, 19, is a product of the club’s youth system who signed a development contract at Brunton Park, having completed his scholarship, in May this year.

Manager Keith Curle said: “Cameron is keen to be playing games and we have a good relationship with Peter Murphy and Annan.

“We know they’ll look after him and this will give him the opportunity to go and ply his trade at a club which has genuine aspirations to get promoted out of their division.

“It’s another good move for him and which will help to establish his own football identity.”

He spent two months of this season on-loan with Whitby Town and featured in Tuesday afternoon’s home reserve game victory over Fleetwood Town.

Salkeld was called up to the Carlisle first team squad whilst still a second-year youth team player and made his debut for the club in the Checkatrade Trophy home game against Blackburn Rovers in October 2016.

He scored his first senior goal against Fleetwood in the same competition, one month later, as he broke into the box from the right flank and smashed the ball home.

This deal remains subject to international clearance.
