Long-Term Servant Departs

Long-Term Servant Departs

Dennis Booth, who has been associated with Carlisle in various roles for almost a decade decade, has left the club.

A former coach and scout, having assisted three former Carlisle managers, was employed in an "upstairs role" but The News & Star reports that the 64-year-old had seen his job "increasingly marginalized" in recent times.

Booth first came to Brunton Park as no.2 under former boss Paul Simpson in 2003; he left with him for a short spell at Preston but returned a year later as a scout. Previously having worked as Greg Abbott's no.2 Booth "moved upstairs" in time.

Little comment was made by Booth, however his departure has been virtually confirmed (once the final details have been ironed out this will be officially done) with it believed that he hasn't actually done much work for The Cumbrians in several weeks with cost cutting measures possible dictating things?

He'll be wished the best of luck by all that knew him as he has offered plenty for The Blues during his years at Brunton.
