Tough baptism for young defender
Shotton-born left back Joe Willetts made the first of his 239 league appearances for the club, and he will have had few tougher afternoons. Carlisle inside right Ivor Broadis helped himself to a hat-trick and right winger Eric Hayton also got on the scoresheet as the Cumbrians ran out 5-1 winners.
