Tribute to Andrew Jenkins

Andrew Jenkins is incomparable in his contribution as Director, Chairman and owner of Carlisle Utd since 1959. He was also a good friend of the London Branch and always had a good word to say about our contribution to the club. The following is the London Branch's own tribute written by branch Information Officer Andy Hall who, as Media Officer for Carlisle United for many years, knew Andrew well .

The Carlisle United Supporters’ Club London Branch was deeply saddened to hear of the passing of United’s Chairman Emeritus Andrew Jenkins when the news was released by the club on Wednesday afternoon.

Branch chairman Dave Brown Said: “Andrew’s passion for Carlisle United was clear to all and his support for the club was unswerving. He was a good friend to the London Branch and made himself available to us whenever we asked.

“It is a relief that he was able to see a strong and secure future for the club before his sad passing.”


Celebrating success with Fred Story & fans

Committee member and club SLO Simon Clarkson said: “Andrew was simply Mr Carlisle United. It is only as I became involved in the memorabilia collection at the club that I have seen and heard from others of the significant impact he made.

“My various fan roles at the club gave me the privilege to speak to him regularly and he always had a tale to tell. We should be eternally grateful for everything Andrew did for the club. He was a truly remarkable man.”

Roma 2  Carlisle 3 
50th Anniversary  T- shirt

Simmo has his. Have you got yours yet?   This nostalgic celebration of one of Carlisle's best ever victories over the mighty Roma on their own patch in the famous Stadio Olimpico in Rome is a must have for all fans.

This was the first time that an English team beat Roma in Rome in a competitive match, and it took another 29 years before Liverpool won in a UEFA cup game.

The shirt has a fantastic design by Jane Jardine, who did our popular Shankly and Jimmy Glass shirts, and features the great Stan Bowles who starred for the Blues in Rome. Here it is with United manager Paul Simpson.

The shirt is priced at £17 which includes a £2 donation to the Alzheimer’s Society in respect to Stan. Click on the link to buy.
