The big fight

After a two week lay off CUFC are 'back in business'

Carlisle United come off a two week lay off to face Exeter City away on Saturday.

The blues have struggled away from home this season and manager Keith Curle admits that they are in a relegation battle this season. He does believe though that his side are not too far away from turning things around, and a positive result at the weekend would go a long way to starting that process.

Supporters' Club marks 40 years of following from afar

40 years ago Carlisle United were enjoying their one and only season in the top flight of English football. But that season is also notable for another reason. Following United's away game at Spurs a few people met up in room of a London pub to talk about the game and their club.

It was the inaugural meeting of what would become the London Supporters Club. An organisation that is a powerful fundraiser for the club as well as ensuring a healthy United contingent at games far down south.

Ryan Dollard has been to meet the man whose bright idea to get Cumbrian ex-pats together in the capital has gone on to thrive.

We also spoke to Simon Clarkson, the current chairman of the Carlisle United Supporters' Club London branch. We asked him if last season's relegation and this season's troubles had affected membership.
