Carlisle United Trust in crunch meeting over £1.26m investment

Members of the Carlisle United Trust are meeting today about a potential £1.26 million investment in the club.

The Trust is voting on whether to reduce their shareholding from 25.4 per cent to 10 per cent to allow businessman Andrew Lapping's investment proposals to go ahead.

The move could pave the way for Mr Lapping to bring up to £1.26 million into the club.

If the Trust does not approve the new arrangement, Mr Lapping, who is being backed by several local businessmen, has said he would "walk away" from investing in the club.

Carlisle picked up a valuable three points in their relegation fight with a 2-0 victory away at Northampton Town last night.

After a goalless first half, Jason Kennedy put the Blues ahead when he slotted in Kyle Dempsey's pass.

Dempsey soon doubled the advantage heading home from David Amoo's cross.

Northampton's best chances saw James Gray's header saved by Dan Hanford and Brendon Moloney firing over the bar.

The result saw Carlisle move three points clear of the relegation zone.
