Abbott looking at Irish pair

15 Jul 2010 - 13:22:15

Carlisle United manager Greg Abbott has added another two trialists to his squad as his pre-season preparations gather pace.

Shamrock Rovers duo Craig Walsh and Gary Shaw have teamed up with the Cumbrians and Abbott will cast his eye over the pair this week.

Centre-forward Walsh, 18, and midfielder Shaw, who is also 18, will be looking to impress alongside Francoise Zoko, Patrick Cregg, Billy Gibson and Nick Wood, who are also trying to earn contracts.

However, Jake Simpson, the son of former United boss and new Stockport County manager Paul Simpson, has been released.

Speaking to the club's official website, Abbott said: "We've heard good things about the lads and it will be interesting to see how they get on. We'll take a look at them and we can then take it from there.

"Jake had a great ten-day period with us and he is a decent player, hence the reason for keeping him here for so long.

"It looks like he may have a few other options, and we couldn't guarantee him anything at this moment in time, so he's going off to have a look at those. It's been good to have him here and we wish him all the best."

Meanwhile, defender Danny Livesey has been ruled out for three months with a groin injury he picked up in training on Monday.
