Keith Curle: 'we're ready to win'

Players and fans at Carlisle United are gearing up for a huge day in the club's history: tomorrow's fourth round FA Cup tie against Everton.

Brunton Park will host a sell-out crowd of seventeen thousand. The tie is worth an estimated quarter of a million pounds to United.

The Blues' manager, Keith Curle, says his players will go out aiming to win, though he accepts they will need fortune on their side.

Ryan Dollard looks ahead to the game:

Remember the Carlisle United team of 1995/96?

They made the club's first ever appearance at the old Wembley Stadium, dressed in their infamous 'deckchair' away strip.

Derek Mountfield played for Everton, but in 1994 he moved to Carlisle United, and helped the Blues win promotion to Division Two.

Watch him, and other players including Rory Delap, introducing themselves to the camera:

Carlisle United will be hoping for a performance reminiscent of the boys of 95/96, when they take on Everton at Brunton Park this weekend.


Cameron's flood funding is 'totally inadequate'

Cumbria County Council says David Cameron's £3million funding package is nowhere near enough to get Cumbria back on its feet.

With an estimated £500m of damage to our infrastructure, including £20m in the Lake District National Park alone, today’s funding announcement is totally inadequate.

“The government describes Cumbria and the Lake District National Park as a jewel in the crown of the British countryside, and it is.

That is why we are urgently seeking a face to face meeting with Ministers to secure the amount of money that we need to fund Cumbria’s full recovery. It is now 8 weeks since the floods hit Cumbria and this has to be, and should be government’s, top priority.”

– Councillor Stewart Young, Leader of Cumbria County Council
