Glenn Murray
Maryport-born Glenn has made his move down to Spotland a permanent one today after spending the last two and a half months on loan with the 'Dale, the striker making 12 starts and scoring four goals for the League Two strugglers. Murray found first-team opportunities limited at Carlisle since joining the club in December 2004 from Barrow, following a successful trial period at Brunton Park, and even more so last season due to the flying form of Karl Hawley and Michael Bridges upfront. Glenn leaves United and moves to the 'Dale after only making eleven starts, along with a mammoth 47 as a substitute for the Blues, scoring just six goals along the way.

As a local lad the 23-year old striker started his career at Workington AFC, then moving to Wilmington Hammerheads in the US after regularly hitting the back of the net with the Reds. His stay in the States didn't last long though and he moved back to Cumbria to join Barrow in October 2004, where he scored nine goals in nine games, before then United boss Paul Simpson decided to take him on trial at Brunton Park.

Glenn moved to Stockport County on a temporary basis at the start of August this season and made 11 starts for the League Two club, scoring three goals in the process before his two-month loan spell ended. Two of those goals coming in a 2-1 win at home to Bristol Rovers on the 3rd of September, Murray's other goal coming in a 1-1 draw against Accrington Stanley at Edgeley Park four games into the season.
