Curle to quit Lambe’s Carlisle
Reggie Lambe will have a new manager to impress if he wants to remain at Carlisle United next season after Keith Curle announced his intention to leave Brunton Park.
Midfielder Lambe, the Bermuda captain, is out of contract this summer after signing a two-year deal in June 2016.
Curle, who has been at the helm for three years, announced his decision to quit this week, after the Cumbrian side failed to assure a play-off spot in Sky Bet League Two.
ďBeing manager of this club has been massive for me,Ē Curle told the Carlisle website yesterday. ďBeing able to stabilise and improve a football club, from the position it was in, has been really enjoyable.
ďThe backing Iíve had from supporters, staff, stakeholders and my back room staff has been excellent. Thereís no way I could have done this on my own and Iím very grateful for the support Iíve received.Ē
Tenth-placed Carlisle play Port Vale today before closing out their season at home to Newport County next weekend.
ďItís the right time for me personally and itís been my decision to leave, even though it wasnít an easy decision to make,Ē Curle said. ďIím very respectful of the fact the club have asked me to stay on to take the last two games.
ďIíll also advise on those players who are out of contract going beyond the end of the season and Iíll use the knowledge I have of the individuals to help with that. Obviously that is only advice, and it will then be up to the club or the next manager to decide if they feel thatís right.Ē
