Teenage midfielder Connor Hammell has put pen-to-paper on a one-year contract with Carlisle United.
The 18-year-old came through the club’s academy system and made three appearances last season. His debut came in the 2-1 home win over Northampton in December and he played the entire second half in the final game of the season against Hartlepool.
Queen of the South have re-signed four of their current squad who helped the Dumfries club lift both the Second Division League title and the Ramsdens Challenge Cup.
Mark Durnan, Chris Mitchell, Stephen McKenna and Gavin Reilly, who have all signed one-year extensions, will join Kevin Holt and Paul Burns who are already under contract next season.
However, Dumfries midfielder Willie Gibson has parted ways with the club by mutual consent.
