The 18-year-old has committed himself to the Cumbrians until the summer of 2014 following the successful completion of his two-year YTS programme.

Salmon enjoyed a taste of first-team action with late-season substitute appearances against Bournemouth and Colchester for Greg Abbott's men.

"Even though I've signed, it still hasn't really sunk in," he told Carlisle's official website. "I think that will only happen when I come back.

"It is nice to have it done. It's what you want to achieve when you first come to the club and it's a great feeling when it actually happens. I just want to get this break over with and get back to work.

"I've had to put a lot into my two years to try to get to this stage but I know that the really hard work starts now. I have to prove that I'm good enough to perform for the first team. Getting my debut, home and away, has been massive for me."

e'll be fine, no problem. If they do get relegated, he's definitely going to ask how anyone could ever have thought that Villa were going to be fine given their problems before he came.

toke though. Hmn. I don't think it was defending that made people dislike Stoke so much as the out and out cheating/nastiness they regularly displayed. That, and they kept buying the odd flair player and then ruining them (Oh! Tuncay, what were you thinking?).

ell that really inspires me with confidence. No point in training, deciding on a coherent formation, or playing players in their best positions, let's just hope we get lucky.
