Carlisle United extend Kennedy's loan deal

Jason Kennedy

Carlisle United have extended Jason Kennedy's loan deal until the end of the season.

The Bradford City midfielder scored the winner in Saturday's 1-0 home win over Dagenham and Redbridge.

He described it as "the most important goal of my career so far".

It was the 28-year-old's seventh appearance for the club, since his loan contract began in March.

Jason came in and did exactly what we expected him to do. He adds drive and energy to the midfield and he brings that level of controlled aggression and determination which is so important at this level.

The fans have responded to him because they’ve seen what he’s added to the team and the squad. He’s got his goals and he’s one we know will do everything he can to help over these last four games.

He’s been excellent to work with and it goes without saying we’re delighted that he’ll be staying until the end of the season.”

– Keith Curle, Carlisle United Manager

Carlisle United will not appeal against the four match ban handed out to defender Troy Archibald-Henville at the weekend.

He was sent off after an injury time incident in their 1-0 victory against Dagenham and Redbridge.

As it's his second red card of the season, he has been banned for four matches and will play no further part in Carlisle's relegation battle at the bottom of League Two.

The club had considered appealing but said the footage of the incident was "too inconclusive."
