IN MEMORIAM: Farewell to those we lost

The August 2021 roll of honour

11 August 2021

Remembering our loved ones who are no longer with us:

Alan Kitching

I lost my Dad in January this year after a short battle with cancer, age 73. He always followed Carlisle United even whilst living on the other side of the world in New Zealand. When he moved back here in 2019 he enjoyed quite a few rounds of golf with Adam Collin - Mandy Davidson.


Walter Oswald

Walter sadly died in March – with love from Di, Michelle, Andrew, Kelly and Kieran. 


Keith 'Elly' Ellison

In loving memory of Keith. Forever a blue. Gary.


William ‘Billy’ Frizzel (1935 – 2021)

Known affectionately to friends and family as Billy, he was a lifelong Carlisle fan. He would be at every game without fail, even in the pouring rain (which it mostly was). He was known for his devout loyalty to his blues. We sadly lost Billy earlier this year. He was a true representation of a gentleman, and there’ll be an awfully large Billy shaped hole in every attendance at Brunton Park forever.


Ian Fleming

My dad Ian was a season ticket holder - J.M.Fleming, Ruth Fleming.


Val Hind

We sadly lost my mam following her death from Covid in January of this year. Ian.


David Oates

A loving husband, dad and grandad. A big Carlisle fan. 


Roger Robson (1 June 1942 – 6 January 2021)

My father Roger was a long-standing Paddock season ticket holder. He died this January following a long battle against blood cancer. He died knowing that the Blues were top of the league. The photo shows him in his Cumberland and Westmorland wrestling kit. Simon.


Tony Scholes

My dad, Tony, died on his Golden Wedding Anniversary on 23 January 21. The entire family have worked at Carlisle United over the years and the club was one of his passions. He will be forever missed. Andy. 


Mike Richards (11/12/1942 – 09/05/2020)

My husband was a season ticket holder for many years. He is greatly missed. Avril.


Kevan Blackadder (1960-2021)

My brother and I grew up supporting CUFC, starting in the mid-1960s, and have both done so ever since - even though Kevan spent much of his life in the southwest, working in Bristol, Plymouth, and Cheltenham. Kevan died of cancer in January. He was a devoted and passionate Blues supporter, home and away. Neil.


Ian Heggie (Dec 1951 - Mar 2020)

Missed by everyone.


Kevin Frost

My partner Kevin passed away in May and was a big Carlisle United fan. Jackie.


Stuart Thompson

I lost my husband on 30 April this year, we always came to the first and last home games and some in between if he wasn’t working. Jennifer.


Alan Carr (01/08/1938 – 11/10/2020)

Alan was a Carlisle fan all his life and always stood in Paddock with his wife Marjorie. He went to Wembley and to many away games. A TRUE BLUE. Nicola.


Gordon Wilson (11/06/1946 – 19/03/2021)

Gordon was a lifelong United supporter - “The paddock will forever be quieter now.” Kate.


Colin Kindleysides

My dad was a lifelong Carlisle United fan, cruelly taken from us far too young by pancreatic cancer in February 2021. Andy.


Ali Rich

Ali was a true blue all his life. He will be a massive miss in the D Stand. Jack.


Nicky Green

Loved and dearly missed by all of his family and friends.


Eric Hudson (10 April 1929 - 14 August 2020)

Eric was a fan and season ticket holder for over 70 years. He worked for the club for many years after retirement selling Golden Goal tickets on match days. he also helped the commercial team to organise the hundreds of coaches for our first trip to Wembley against Birmingham City. Graeme.


Joe McTear (13/07/52 -23/07/21)

Up until his death recently my dad Joe was still working for the club, on the away ticket office and also as a steward. He has been an ardent support of Carlisle since the late 50s. He experienced all the highs and the lows of the club over those 60 plus years home and away. He was there for the climb to the top in the 70s to the lows of non-league football. His unwavering support for the Blues paid off with two visits to Wembley and a league cup trophy. He left a lasting impression on everyone he met and will be greatly missed. He will forever be in our hearts. Jamie.


Al Nixon (05/05/68 - 11/01/21)

A true Carlisle fan, even when he moved to live in Spain. Missed by his family and friends.


Also gone but not forgotten:

Captain Sir Tom Moore

Mike Sutton

Arthur Hodgkison

Peter Hampton

John Courtenay

David Porter

Jack McDowell
