The deal saw Cumbrian Cottages and Cottages4you provide a cash donation to allow the club to purchase specialist Futsal training equipment. This was used to enhance the experience of both the first team and academy players during training sessions and help push the club onto new levels on the court.
And the Club has done just that.
The first team completed the second half of their FA National League campaign unbeaten winning their final 3 games and superb progress has been made with the academy programme which has grown with the addition of 2 new teams creating spaces for 40 new members.
As well as securing new balls and equipment some of the sponsorship money was spent on the launch of the Clubs unique and innovative new training system the APPP which ensures all of our academy players maximise their improvements. Where we previously coached groups of 20 children teaching Futsal fundamentals we now, through our APPP scheme, monitor, assess and create individual training plans which provides us with the opportunity to offer to our Academy players the chance to fully realise their own individual potential.
Chairman Al Tindall explained ‘The donation from Cumbrian Cottages and Cottages4you has allowed us to implement our plans to create great players for the future, players who will go on to represent Carlisle at National level and hopefully gain full England caps. It allows us to expand our offering to the community by providing something unique, this helps us to attract new members to the Club. In addition it is also a huge tick in the box for the FA when it comes to our Super League application for season 2015/16.’
