Carlisle United have boosted their squad by singing two new wingers.
Reggie Lambe, 25, from Mansfield Town, has joined on a one year deal.
He made his debut for the Stags in their 3-2 home victory over Carlisle in September 2014.
People like Reggie can unlock doors for you in difficult situations. He's a wide player who can come in off the line, or go down it, and he's good with both feet.
We'll be able to play Reggie in a number of positions, but we've spoken to him and we know what his best position will be. Reggie had more financially lucrative offers to go and play at the same level, or higher, but he’s chosen to come here and that’s something we’re very pleased about.
The club have also signed Jamie Devitt, 25, on a two-year deal from Morecambe.
Jamie is a very talented individual who joins us on the back of a successful season on a personal level.
Jamie was arguably one of the most effective players we faced last year, playing a big part in three of the four goals we conceded against Morecambe.

Carlisle United Football Club have appointed Nigel Clibbens as the Club’s new Chief Executive.
Clibbens was previously Chief Executive Officer at Championship club Huddersfield Town for seven years, and will take up his new role at Brunton Park on Monday 6 June 2016.
His role means he will be the key point of contact for first team manager Keith Curle.
During the transition period of the current transfer window, player recruitment will continue to involve Andrew Jenkins and John Nixon.
John Nixon will retain his current role of Director of External Affairs, covering Football League and FA duties on behalf of the club.
Speaking to carlisleunited.co.uk, Carlisle United chairman Andrew Jenkins said:
I am delighted to welcome Nigel to Carlisle United. The time is right for this latest change in our progression after those made last year.
Along with his knowledge and skills he will bring a fresh approach and new ideas which we recognise as important for the club as we continue to rebuild after the floods and look forward.
He has a good track record on and off the pitch, I know that we have someone who can take us forward.
Nigel will run the club day-to-day and will work manager with Keith Curle and the existing directors to do what is required to improve us. He will help give us a club that we and our fans can be proud of.
In doing so, he will receive the full support of everyone at Carlisle United to make the changes needed to progress.”
Nigel Clibbens said:
It is a honour and privilege to join Carlisle United in this role. I have been fortunate to be a part of a team that transformed my previous club both on and off the field and I am excited by this opportunity. I am looking forward to working together with everyone and I will endeavour to do everything possible to bring success to the club.
Nearly six months on from Storm Desmond and Carlisle United have re-opened their indoor football facility.
The Neil Centre is used by dozens of sports clubs and community groups, but flooding in December caused structural damage.
Almost six months after the Cumbrian floods, Carlisle United's backroom staff are still working in portakabins as repair work continues on the ground.
Financial director Phil King says it will be a close run thing to get back to pre-flood normality before the start of the new season.
"Everybody here is looking forward to getting into some kind of a normal working environment in an office that has got windows and chairs and desks and a normal kind of place.
"That has been the toughest challenge to keep going, because it has been a long road."
