EFL TROPHY: United drawn in Group G

United to face seaside rivals

12 July 2019

Carlisle United have been drawn with 'local' rivals Blackpool and Morecambe in the group stages of this season's EFL Trophy competition.

With United having hosted Morecambe at the same stage last season, it should mean an away game at the Globe Arena this time round.

That will bring Simon Grayson's Tangerines to Brunton Park and a return for midfielder Jamie Devitt, who left the Blues to sign for the Seasiders last month.

And the Group line-up was completed with a draw live on Talksport which saw the Wolverhampton Wanderers under-21 side drop into the final slot.

Provisional match details:

+ Carlisle United v Wolverhampton Wanderers U21 - w/c 2 September

+ Carlisle United v Blackpool - w/c 7 October

+ Morecambe v Carlisle United - w/c 11 November 

The full groups for the Northern Area are as follows:

Group A Group B Group C
