Video: Reggie Lambe Scores In Carlisle Debut

August 6, 2016

Bermudian sporting excellence is on full display today, as while our Olympians begin to compete in Brazil, professional footballer Reggie Lambe made a very impressive debut for Carlisle United, scoring in his first showing for the team.

The match vs Portsmouth ended in a 1-1 draw, and in a tweet following the match, Lambe said, “Good to be on the score sheet on my debut, @officialcufc disappointed to not take all 3pts but great start to the season.”

The club’s match report said, “Manager Keith Curle handed debuts to five of his new signings for the trip to face promotion favourites Portsmouth on the opening day and his new-look charges had to play for close to 70 minutes with just ten men following an early dismissal for wide man Jamie Devitt.

“United stunned the sell-out home crowd into silence on the quarter hour when Shaun Miller put a lovely touch onto a Jones clip. Reggie Lambe showed pace and poise as he left everyone in his wake. His first touch carved the back line open and his second left Forde with no chance as he calmly found the bottom corner.

“Pompey tried to strike back early but resolute defending kept them at bay as the Carlisle defence held their shape.

“But the task was made harder just before the half hour when the Cumbrians were reduced to ten men when wide man Jamie Devitt was shown a second yellow card for what appeared to be a tug on a shirt.

“Pompey brought matters level just ahead of the break when Roberts twisted and turned with the ball at his feet. He spotted Baker in space and Gillespie could do nothing about a low, whisked shot which flew through his legs.”
