VISIT 1: Carlisle United 1-2 Gillingham 8/2/14
FIRST VISIT TO CUMBRIA; CARLISLE VS GILLINGHAM:
Carlisle United 1-2 Gillingham
Saturday 8th February 2014
My 1st visit to Carlisle was the one of the ones I was looking forward to the most. Gillingham had been promoted to League One, so of course Carlisle were still in League One at the time. Carlisle is the literally the furthest other than Plymouth for away games, as Carlisle as a place is literally on the borders of Scotland. From what I can remember of that day, I can remember leaving home about 5-5.30am in order to get the coach at Gillingham which left at 6.30am. I believe we eventually arrived at Carlisle by 1.45pm and then got home from Carlisle at around 1.10am the next day. Such a long and shattering day. The only bit I regret doing about that day is going by coach which I shouldn't have done. It was such a long day, felt like it was never ending. The next time when I do visit Carlisle at some point will have to be train for me, will still be long but quicker I think. Only good thing to come out of that day was a terrific 2-1 win which saw Joe Pigott get his 1st and only goal for Gillingham if I remember correctly.
