BRIEF HISTORY of CARLISLE UNITED FOOTBALL CLUB (reproduced from 'Wikipedia' pages)

The club was formed on 17 May 1904 at Shaddongate United's annual general meeting where the club's members voted to change the team's name to Carlisle United. The newly formed club initially played at Milhome Bank and later at Devonshire Park, finally settling at their current home Brunton Park in 1909. The 192728 season was Carlisle's last in the North Eastern League. An excellent home record helped them to second in the table finishing a full 10 points behind Champions Sunderland Reserves. The close season meant the usual round of applications to join (and be re-elected to) the Football League. Carlisle went up against Chester City, Durham City (applying for re-election), Nelson and York City. On 4 June 1928 a delegation of representatives from Carlisle United took their seats at the Football League meeting in London to hear the results of the vote. Carlisle received the second-most votes with 33, and replaced Durham City, who had received just 11 votes, as members of the Football League. Carlisle United won their first game in the Football League Third Division North. Carlisle were members of the Third Division North until 1958 when it combined with the Third Division South to become the Fourth Division. They remained there until 1962 when they won their first promotion, they were relegated the following season but immediately bounced back to begin the most prosperous period in the club's history.

Upon gaining promotion to the Third Division in 1964 United immediately won the Third Division Championship the following year. In the period which followed Carlisle enjoyed their greatest success outside of cup competitions. Over twelve years the club cemented themselves as a solid Second Division side. Within that period Carlisle finished 7 out of 11 seasons in the top half of the table including 3rd in 1966-67, 4th in 1970-71 and a 3rd in 1973-74 which saw them promoted to the top tier of English football. The 1971-72 season also saw Carlisle play their only European competition in the club's history, in June 1972 they beat A.S. Roma 32 at the Stadio Olimpico in Rome. Playing in the First Division for the 197475 season. Carlisle won their first three fixtures to go top of the English football pyramid. The success was short lived however, they finished the season in bottom place and were relegated. Carlisle missed out on the Third Division title in 1981-82 by goal difference alone. Carlisle still remains the smallest location in England, by local population, to have had a resident top-flight football team since 1906. Carlisle ended their most prosperous period as rapidly as it had started. Back to back relegations in 86 and 87 saw them enter the Fourth division for the first time in 21 years. Their first season in there saw them finish second from bottom but 19 points ahead of relegated Newport County. In contrast, the same year they reached the FA Cup third round but were defeated by eventual champions Liverpool.
