Elias Sorensen came on as a late substitute in Carlisle’s 1-1 draw at Morecambe. This was just the 8th appearance in the league for the 20-year-old with only of those being a start. We’ll have to see if new manager Chris Beech is eventually going to give Sorensen a bigger role than Steven Pressley did. However, it’s not looking likely at the moment. Newcastle target Jarrad Branthwaite played the entire match for Carlisle
85' Sorensen on for Loft for us.

Would like to say a big Thankyou to all the staff and players @Blyth_Spartans, as well as all the fans there who backed me throughout my loan. Been ups and downs throughout but it’s been a great experience at a great club. Good luck for the rest of the season! #howayblyth ?? https://t.co/143e3eUBJ5
