|Green moves to Carlisle
|Newcastle United youngster
Stuart Green has joined Carlisle after the move was put on hold as Bobby
Robson did not want him cup-tied.
Now that the deal has gone through the Whitehaven-born star will go
straight into the team that takes the field against Swansea on Saturday.
United chief scout Barry Robinson took Green to Newcastle when he worked
at St James' Park. And the first thing Robinson did on joining The
Cumbrians recently was to seek out Green's availability for a loan
switch to Brunton Park.
Carlisle's new-found good relations with The Magpies helped secure the
deal, and Collins has high hopes that he has finally found the right
formula to shoot Carlisle up the league, with Green expected to play
alongside Brendan McGill, Phil Hadland and Steve Soley in midfield, with
Richie Foran and Ian Stevens leading the line.
