United added the versatile Joe Riley to their ranks on a one-year deal during the August 2020 transfer window.

A clause was activated at the end of that campaign to keep him in Carlisle for a second season.

Blackpool-born Riley was snapped up by giants Manchester United as a youngster and he blossomed as he came through the ranks, finding himself utilised in both the left back and midfield areas.

He made his way into the first team squad under Louis van Gaal, as part of the Europa League squad, and he made his debut at the same time as Marcus Rashford when the Red Devils Beat Midjtylland in a 5-1 rout in that same competition.

A loan spell with Sheffield United in January 2017 was blighted by injury. He joined Bradford City on a two-year deal in the summer of 2018.

Joe made 47 appearances during his first season in Cumbria, predominantly in midfield, and scored two goals.
