Carlisle eager to take a second look at Longford defender Lee

CARLISLE United have said they want to take another look at Longford Town's Mike Lee.

The 21-year-old defender, who was Longford's player of the year last season, spent last week on trial with the League One side and impressed in a behind-closed-doors friendly against Rangers, so United boss Greg Abbott wants to have another look at the player.

"Michael showed an excellent attitude and he did really well with us," said Abbott.

"He has a few bits and pieces to sort out in Ireland but we'll get him back here at some point and have another look.


"There's no pressure on either party at the moment but we do want to take a longer look if that is at all possible."
