    Keith Curle will leave Brunton Park at the end of the season


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.

“Being manager of this club has been massive for me,” Curle told the Carlisle website yesterday. “Being able to stabilise and improve a football club, from the position it was in, has been really enjoyable.

“The backing I’ve had from supporters, staff, stakeholders and my back room staff has been excellent. There’s no way I could have done this on my own and I’m very grateful for the support I’ve received.”

Tenth-placed Carlisle play Port Vale today before closing out their season at home to Newport County next weekend.

“It’s the right time for me personally and it’s been my decision to leave, even though it wasn’t an easy decision to make,” Curle said. “I’m very respectful of the fact the club have asked me to stay on to take the last two games.

“I’ll also advise on those players who are out of contract going beyond the end of the season and I’ll 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 that’s right.”
