Carlisle United have today signed striker Lewis Alessandra on a short-term deal which keeps him at Brunton Park until the end of the current season.
Alessandra, 30, brings a vast amount of experience to the squad. He was most recently with local rivals Morecambe where he bagged five goals in his 26 appearances through the first half of this season. He featured in both of the pre-Christmas fixtures against the Blues for the Shrimps.
He started his career as a youngster with Oldham where he secured his first professional contract. He scored eight goals in 76 appearances for the Latics before moving to Morecambe for his first spell with the Shrimps.
Two years by the seaside preceded a switch to Plymouth, where he made over 100 appearances for the Pilgrims, netting 25 goals along the way.
Spells with Rochdale, York (loan), Hartlepool and Notts County followed, where he continued to find the back of the net, before he returned to Morecambe on a half-season deal in July 2019.
Head coach Chris Beech will be talking about this signing at his weekly press conference later today.
