About 80 young children from across Cumbria have been taking part in the annual James Rennie Football Challenge.
The tournament is for children with a range of learning and physical disabilities.
"The James Rennie Football Challenge is a fantastic event for both special and mainstream schools to get involved in and playing opportunities for both high ability and lower ability players has been a great success over the past year."
Players from Carlisle United were also there to meet the children and give them tip on how to improve their game.
"I remember being at school when I was younger and I loved seeing a professional player and thinking 'wow that's something I want do' and it's the same for any kids when they're younger. They're enjoying seeing us and it's great to see what they're up to and there are some tackles flying about so that's good."
