The attacking midfielder, released by Hull City following their promotion to the Premier League, has been training with the Cumbrians for the past few days.

He completed 90 minutes in a 1-0 pre-season victory over Penrith on Friday night and admits he is loving life at the club.

"I've been here a week and it's been great - I could see myself fitting in here and hopefully I'll be able to," the 21-year-old told the News & Star.

"It's a great little club. I've come from Hull and it's a lot different, more compact, more of a family unit."

Emerton admits he is keen to find a club where he can play regular first-team football after finding it frustrating on the fringes at Hull.

"I'm desperate for it - I've been three years as a pro and playing reserve team football for three years," he said.

"Since the start of last season I wasn't even contemplating trying to get into the team, I was just looking to get out on loan. That didn't work out so I just need the break now."
