Lambe’s tough introduction to new team

Reggie Lambe was introduced to his new team-mates during the third day of pre-season training at Sky Bet League Two side Carlisle United.

Lambe missed Carlisle's first day of pre-season after he was given extra time off to recover from playing for Bermuda in the Caribbean Cup.

Keith Curle, the Carlisle manager, and his backroom team subjected their new-look squad to a gruelling session at Creighton Rugby Club ahead of the new campaign, which starts in six weeks.

New signings, existing players, youth-team hopefuls and one unnamed trialist were put through a yo-yo test — also known as the bleep test — to examine their endurance.

Lambe, who signed for Carlisle from Mansfield Town this month, has not had a summer break having captained the island in the Caribbean Cup second round.

Bermuda were eliminated from the competition after losing 3-0 to French Guiana in Cayenne last week to finish bottom of their group, after also losing to Dominican Republic.

Lambe turned down a new deal at Mansfield Town who were hoping he would remain at Mill Lane.

The former Ipswich Town winger, who had several clubs competing for his signature, made 73 appearances and scored ten goals for Mansfield during his two seasons at the club.
