Coach Leaves For Sunderland

Coach Leaves For Sunderland

When a premier league club comes calling it will always be hard to say no, no matter who you are.

Chris Blake had been part of the Carlisle set-up, playing a key role in the new Elite Player Performance Plan, with his talents not going unnoticed as Sunderland have managed to lure him away from Brunton Park.

The 27-year-old has left to go to the Stadium of Light and work as an analyst for the premier league side.

Blake has told the News & Star that he had no intentions of leaving Carlisle but the Sunderland offer wasn't one that he felt he could refuse. He did go onto say that he thinks, in spite of the relegation into league 2, that the future looks bright for the Cumbrians.

This site is looking for an editor (at least contributor), so if a fan can offer us a genuine opinion from someone that supports them we would love to share it with the masses!
