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.

Cumberland FA hosted its second Over 40’s football event of the season at Maryport on Sunday.

Four teams from across the County participated in the two 50 minute games at Netherhall Community Sports Centre.

The first game saw Bush Wanderers FC draw with Westfield FC, with the game ending one-one. But Frizington Whitestar were victorious in the second, when they took on Howard Rangers FC.

Organisers said the event was intended to be fun.

“All of the games were played in a competitive but fair manner with the emphasis very much on all players enjoying playing the game that they love and enjoy”.
