Carlisle United’s boss Paul Simpson makes an honest admission as the Blues are honoured with an award for his impressive resurgence…

The Cumbria Sports Awards have officially acknowledged Carlisle United’s impressive resurgence under the leadership of Paul Simpson, honoring their promotion success. The special award, presented by Active Cumbria, specifically recognizes the team’s outstanding performance in the League Two play-off final against Stockport County at Wembley in May.

The judging panel commended Carlisle United for creating a “real buzz” and fostering a sense of “positivity” both in the city and beyond. They highlighted the remarkable progress made by the club, both on and off the pitch, since Paul Simpson took over as manager 18 months ago. The community support for the club in Carlisle and across north Cumbria has notably increased during this period.

Despite encountering mixed results in the early stages of the League One season, Carlisle United has demonstrated resilience, holding their own against seemingly more prominent clubs. Notably, standout performances against Bolton and Burton have contributed to the positive perception of the team.

The Special Award serves as recognition for the far-reaching impact of a high-performing Carlisle United on the entire north of the county. It acknowledges the positivity generated in the city of Carlisle and its surrounding areas, emphasizing the team’s significance in uniting and uplifting the local community.
