GALLERY: Cumwhinton Crusaders U11 get their new shirts presented at Brunton Park

Academy coach Mark Birch made it a special night for Cumwhinton Crusaders under-11s as they got their 2019/20 kits presented in the first team dressing room at Brunton Park last Monday night.

The players enjoyed a behind-the-scenes tour of the stadium before going out onto the warm-up area adjacent to the training pitch for a quick training session. 

Roger Smith, managing director at Thomas Graham, and a current United vice-president, said: "It was great for Mark to invite our under-11 team down to the club.

"They got to see what a real first team dressing room was like, when we presented them with their new shirts for the upcoming season, and I know they loved sitting in the same seats as the United players use almost every day of the week. 

"Thanks to everybody at Carlisle United for putting such big smiles on our players' faces."
