Carlisle signed striker Manasse Mampala signed a one-year contract with the Blues following a successful trial spell during the 20/21 pre-season period.
He scored twice in his pre-season friendly appearances and his all-action approach endeared him to the fans prior to his contract being signed.
The tall, strong forward was born in Kinshasa, in DR Congo, and move to England at the age of two.
He joined the Everton Academy as a 15-year-old and became a regular in the under-23 squad. He enjoyed a standout season for Paul Tait's under-18 Blues side in 2017/18, contributing 11 goals and chipping in with six assists in 18 appearances in the U18 Premier League.
Mampala signed his first professional deal with Everton in July 2018 and grabbed his opportunity to earn a second one-year contract in summer 2019 having been part of the team that romped their way to league and cup success under David Unsworth that year.
He featured in the EFL Trophy games against Mansfield and Burton for the Toffees early in 2019 and joined QPR on a one-season contract shortly after he’d made those appearances.
