Carlisle have bolstered their goalkeeping options for next season after agreeing a two-year contract with Workington's Adam Collin.
The 24-year-old has spent much of the second half of the campaign training with the League One outfit in a bid to impress manager Greg Abbott.
Collin began his career with North East side Newcastle United and bolstered his experience after undertaking loan spells with lower league outfits Doncaster and Oldham.
Abbott is delighted to have secured Collin's signature and believes having competition for every position at the club can only be a good thing going forward
"He's done really well at Workington and he's a young player that we have wanted to bring in for a while," Abbott told the club's official website.
"He now has the opportunity to put a bit of pressure on Ben Williams, who had an excellent second half of the season, so that's a position that we now feel is a really strong one for us.
"Adam has been with us since January and he has done very, very well. What we will see now is two good goalkeepers competing for the No.1 spot.
"It's good to have that position wrapped up now, because it is a key one for us. The two lads can fight it out for the shirt now, and that's something that's good for the club.
"We want to see competition for places all over the park next season, and it's signings like this that start to bring that kind of thing together. There will be no complacency at all, and that's important for us."
