Jim Mitchell (CUOSC Representative on Carlisle United AFC Board)
Manic lifelong Carlisle United fan. Still love the matchday experience and all that goes with it,
including the crack and beer/cider. A Trust member from its inception and a CUOSC Board
member for the last three years. Also Chair of CUFC's Community Sports Trust. I hope we can play a part in better
connecting the football club with the community, bringing in significant investment tied in with
much needed succession planning and generally helping Carlisle United to move closer to
reaching its potential.

Mike has been a supporter of the Blues for 20 years. Played an instrumental part in formation of CUSG (Carlisle United Supporters' Groups). Original administrator of Cumbrians.net website and fans' forum. Committed to giving fans a stronger voice in the Boardroom, working closer with other CUSG entities, and improving match day presence.
Norman Steel (Project Lead - Corporates)
A fan of well over 60 years standing. Retired company director. In earlier years was a regular in the Paddock and have been a season ticket holder for many years. CUOSC has a hugely significant role to play both for the Supporters and within Club circles.
It has become crystal clear over the last couple of years when expressions of investment interest came to light that the Club is financially unsustainable unless change is introduced to the way it is run. Those changes have 'begun' and CUOSC has demonstrated it's willingness to negotiate with potential new investors over its own share percentage and other matters not only in the best interests of the Club but also it's membership. In this regard there remains much work to be done to secure the Club's long term well being.
Frank Beattie (Project Lead - Corporates)
Former sales manager for a building supplies company. Long standing supporter.
Billy Atkinson (Alternate to Jim Mitchell - Commerical & Marketing)
Local businessman. Involved with Trust since 2006. I look after finance for the Upperby Community Development Centre. Passionate about the Blues.
Carol Wilson (Commercial & Marketing)
Manager of Upperby Community Centre. Committed to community stake in Carlisle United FC.
Nigel Davidson (Communications & Media)
A lifelong Blues supporter, now based in Hexham, having lived home and away for a number of years
I joined the board after returning to the area again in 2013 and wishing to get more involved in helping increase support for the club and build a stronger voice for our supporters
I am currently Media & Communications Director and my main aim in being part of the CUOSC board is to unite all the supporters under one banner - we are all Carlisle United supporters after all.
The past is the past and we should only be looking forward. We actually have a rather unique position at Carlisle where the supporters own 25% of their club and have a voice in the boardroom; we should be utilising this to the full. Compared to supporters of many other clubs, this is an excellent position to have and as a result of the latest CUOSC restructure I hope that we can further develop the relationship between the supporters, the club & local businesses, increase support at home games, get more people involved in volunteering at the club and along with the club, help to create a welcoming, supportive and enjoyable match day experience for all
