Carlisle United is doing very well, and their progress definitely fills the local area with a sense of pride. I think that with a final push they could have a chance of reaching the play-offs.
“Carlisle has a close knit, supportive community and everyone knows everyone. It is so rewarding for businesses, like our own, to give something back and help when we can.”
Liz Cope, chief marketing officer at awards partner Vertu Motors plc - parent company of Bristol Street Motors - added,: “We are delighted to continue to support the PFA Bristol Street Motors Fans’ Player of the Month award.
