Carroll to Cumbria?

Carroll to Cumbria?

With Carlisle just out of the play off reckoning, Cumbrian`s boss Neil McDonald wants our young striker Andy Carroll to spearhead them to title glory in League One next season. With Carroll likely to find his path blocked by Owen, Martins, Ameobi and maybe Sibierski it looks a good move by Glenn Roeder to punt the kid out on loan for a while, build up his match sharpness and get him toughened up with a good kicking in the lower leagues. McDonald said:

"He (Carroll) has just signed a four-year contract which tells you we're never going to be able to buy him. But we have got a good relationship with Newcastle, and they have a lot of young players who have played for the first team this year but who might not have that chance next season, with certain players coming back from injury.

That might give us half a chance to get a couple of them next season, and finishing eighth or ninth in League One this season hopefully gives us the chance to attract players of that calibre. We have to have that fine mixture of youth and experience which we had this season, and bringing in loan players can help us achieve that. We are looking all over the place for players.'
