Brunton Park: Home to Eric Kinder for seven years

Kinder left hometown club Blackburn's academy to join Carlisle in 2006 and has produced a string of players for the Cumbrians' first-team squad.

Eight of Carlisle's current young professionals - Mark Beck, Mark Gillespie, Brandon Gwinnutt, Jack Lynch, Brad Potts, Alex Salmon, Dave Symington and Josh Todd - have all come through the Brunton Park academy to earn their first deals.

"(Blackburn's) my hometown club and the team I support, so from that perspective it's an obvious decision to make," Kinder told Carlisle's official website.

"However, it hasn't been as easy as that. I've had a wonderful time here and I've met some fantastic people, and it's not easy to leave it behind at all.

"What I have to say is that it's a fantastic opportunity for me and it's one I can't ignore.

"Carlisle United is a great club, with really good people behind the scenes, and I know it will go from strength to strength."

Barcelona transfer ban upheld

h Daniel. I could spend hours on this subject putting the world to rights. You can even take a step back and ask why football fans (and society in general) have this need to know that something will happen before it actually does. There are times this important, when it comes to things like war, food production and natural disasters. A man you've never met changing his job? Not so much.

reat article. Hits the nail on the head. Encapsulates why I don't read tabloid newspapers anymore. The only thing worse is the 'told you so first' headline when they get lucky.
