Everybody at Carlisle United Football Club is devastated to learn of the passing of Chairman Emeritus Andrew Jenkins.

There simply aren’t enough words to explain the impact Andrew had on this football club over his 64-year association. 

Immensely loyal, Andrew first joined the board aged just 23 in 1959. He became Chairman in the 1990's, a role which he held until last November when the Piatak family took over the club.

Andrew was then given the honorary title of Chairman Emeritus in recognition of his almost-lifelong service to the football club.

As a mark of respect to Andrew and his family, our media channels will now be silent until Friday. 

Our thoughts are with Andrew’s loved ones at this extremely sad time.
