The 1994/95 season was one of the most memorable and exciting in the club’s history.
Under the management of Mick Wadsworth, United were Division 3 Champions and played in their first ever Wembley appearance when we were narrowly beaten by Birmingham City in the Autoglass (EFL) Trophy.
A series of highlight packages from the season can be viewed HERE.
To commemorate the 25th anniversary of this historic season CUSG (Carlisle United Supporters’ Group) are marketing a pin badge depicting that season’s home and away shirts - the blue home shirt and the iconic ‘deckchair’ away shirt which the team wore in the Wembley final.
The badges, which were designed by Jane Jardine (who also designed the Jimmy Glass pin badge) cost £3 and are available in the Blues Store now.
The badges will also be available outside the Study Centre behind the club shop from 1.30pm on Saturday 12 December ahead of the Stevenage game.
All proceeds will go towards projects that enhance fans match day experience, with examples of earlier activities HERE.
The press run for the pin badges, which were ordered before the pandemic, is limited to 750, so fans should quickly secure their memento of that historic season as quickly as possible, as demand is always high for these items.
Terry McCarthy, speaking on behalf of CUSG, explained: “We launched the badges back in June, which was later than we'd hoped due to the pandemic, and Saturday against Stevenage will be our first chance to sell them 'face to face' because of restrictions.
"We will be outside the Study Centre behind the club shop from 1.30pm on Saturday ahead of the Stevenage game, and we ask all fans who would like to purchase a badge to be sensible and follow the social distancing guidelines.
“The badges have gone down well with fans who have purchased them in the club shop. It’s a timely reminder of the potential this club of ours has. Nearly 30,000 fans travelled to Wembley to support our team 25 years ago and it’s a day that everybody remembers and talks about fondly.”
