Boss happy with JPT draw

9 September 2013

Carlisle tie is one to look forward to

BOSS Jim Bentley says the draw that pits the Shrimps against Carlisle Utd in the second round of the Johnstone's Paint Trophy is one to look forward to.
The Shrimps will host their Cumbrian rivals for the tie at the Globe Arena on Tuesday, October 8th at 7.45pm.
Bentley said: "In truth it is one of the best draws we could have had. The fact we are at home is a bonus and games against Carlisle always provide a good atmosphere.
"Carlisle fans travel in good numbers and we have had some great games against them in the past and this should be no different.
"They have won this competition a few times so will be hoping to do well again this year. But this is a competition that gives the chance of a Wembley final and it would be good to take advantage of the fact we were given a bye in the first round this year.''
Admission prices for the game have yet to be decided but will be announced as soon as known.
