CUFC's Sweeney: 'We're not there yet'

Carlisle United are still waiting for their first league win of the season after drawing 1-1 with Southend United on Saturday.

Antony Sweeney gave the blues the lead in the forty third minute, but shortly afterwards Connor Clifford levelled for the visitors with a speculative effort from twenty five yards.

The second half saw chances at both ends.

Billy Paynter went close for the blues, but ultimately Mark Gillespie's saves ensured that Carlisle wrapped up their second draw in a row.

United's players and manager are hoping to find consistency in the coming weeks after a mixture of injuries, nerves and poor luck have prevented them making the start fans were hoping for in league Two.

Berwickshire's Sammi Kinghorn has won her third gold medal at IPC European Championships in Swansea.

The teenager was taking on Turkey's Hamide Kurt in the final of the women's T53 800 metres. And she turned in another fine performance. After a cagey first lap Kinghorn made a bold overtaking manouvre to pass her rival on the final bend of the race and then powered home to make it a hat trick of wins at the championships.

The 800m win adding another Gold to the two she'd already won this week in the 100 and 400.
