Carlisle United On This Day revisits all the most magical and memorable moments from the club's rollercoaster past, mixing in a maelstrom of quirky anecdotes and legendary characters to produce an irresistibly dippable blue-and-white diary - with an entry for every day of the year. From the club's Edwardian formation through to the 21st century, the Brunton Park faithful have witnessed championships, promotions and relegations, fire and flood and fantastic Cup runs - all featured here. All-time greats including Jimmy McConnell and Chris Balderstone, Allan Ross, Peter Beardsley and Hugh McIlmoyle all loom larger than life. Revisit 24 August 1974, when Alan Ashman's lads went top of the Football League with three wins from three games. 19 November 1969: United 1-0 WBA in the first leg of the League Cup semi-final! Or 8 May 1999, when goalie Jimmy Glass scored in the 94th minute to keep United in the Football League.
