Carlisle United have signed Charlton Athletic central defender Kevin Feely on a one-month loan deal which will keep him at Brunton Park until midnight on 4 September.

The Irish U21 international Feely joined the Bohemians at the end of 2012 having been scouted by a number of clubs, including Peterborough United and Everton.

The 20-year-old played a huge part in the treble winning feats of the Development squad at the Valley last season and has been on the brink of the first team throughout his time with the club.

Manager Greg Abbott said:

“It's an area where we need cover at the moment and he is a very good player who can come in and do that for us,”

"He's a big, strong player who can play a bit of football as well, so we're looking forward to working with him.

"He comes very highly rated and he's another who is very keen and hungry to be involved. Hopefully this will be a good month for him and us."

United stun Blackburn

Carlisle United bounced back from their trouncing on the opening day of the season by knocking championship Blackburn Rovers out of the Capital One Cup.

David Symington scored the penalty that saw Carlisle United through to the next round of the Capital One Cup.

Mark Beck, James Berrett and Liam Noble also scored in the penalty shoot-out after Alex Salmon's miss. Chris Taylor and Josh Morris failed from the spot for Rovers.

United fans were treated to a roller coaster of a game.

David Amoo headed the Cumbrians into the lead in the fourteenth minute early in the second half when Tom Cairney's shot was deflected past Mark Gillespie.

Gillespie then saved a penalty from David Dunn before Chris Taylor nodded Rovers into the lead.

Another header, this time from Lewis Guy, took the game into extra-time by drawing Carlisle level.

Blackburn looked to have sen things up when Alan Judge put them 3-2 up, but in the 114th minute Amoo struck again to set up a penalty showdown.
