Fans are being invited to put Blues head coach Chris Beech on the spot next month.

The club is holding a socially distanced forum that will be published on their official website.

Supporters can send in their questions by video and they will be posted alongside answers from the United boss on the club’s YouTube channel.

The forum is open to all supporters but they should submit their videos by 5pm on Sunday to media@carlisleunited.co.uk with the subject line ‘Ask the Gaffer’.

Simon Clarkson, chairman of the Carlisle United Supporters Group, said: “We hope that this opportunity helps fans in a small way to feel further engaged with the club.

“We’ve had lots of excellent communications from them around the impact of the coronavirus pandemic. This is a chance to hear first-hand from the gaffer on the football side of things.”

SOME fans have mentioned they are missing the fixture cards usually supplied with season tickets. CUOSC are sponsoring the cards this season but due to the pandemic no season tickets have been sent out.

However you can download and print your card by going to the following web address: http://cuosc.org.uk/wp-content/uploads/2020/10/CUFC-Match-Fixtures-Card-2020-21.pdf

NEXT month CUOSC will be organising a collection for Carlisle Foodbank. The coronavirus pandemic has meant difficult times for many and the foodbank has become more important than ever. Please look out for collection point details.

CUOSC’s ‘Carlisle REUnited’ fund has risen to over to over £11,500 thanks to the ‘Face in the Crowd’ promotion

There were over 200 cut-outs in Brunton Park’s virtual crowd for the 3-1 win against Morecambe on Tuesday night.

Among them is a ‘legends’ section which has been set up by the club, CUOSC and the London Branch. Ivor Broadis, Chris Balderstone, Hughie McIlmoyle, Bob Stokoe and Dean Walling are just some of the famous names included.

Don’t forget you can be there in spirit as well. To find out more click http://cuosc.org.uk/carlisle-reunited/face-in-the-crowd/
