CUOSC has awarded honorary life membership to three individuals who have given outstanding service to the football club and/or the United Trust/CUOSC down the years.
Ivor, who recently celebrated his 90th birthday, made history in 1949 when as United's player-manager he sold himself to Sunderland. He went on to play for England as his career reached great heights but he came back 'home' to Carlisle in the late 1950s to end his playing days. Later he became an acclaimed sportswriter who reported on some of United's greatest achievements in the 1970s and 80s.
Hugh is arguably the greatest striker in the club's history, leading the goalscoring charts in 1963-64 when United won promotion to the old Third Division. He went on to enjoy three separate spells at Brunton Park, ending in the 1974-75 first division season. In his career Hughie also played in the FA Cup Final for Leicester City, and also played top flight football at Wolverhampton Wanderers.
Helen is the widow of goalkeeper Allan Ross, the record appearance holder for the Cumbrians. 'Rossy' as he was affectionately known, played for United between 1963 and 1978, appearing in all four divisions of the Football League. Helen has continued to support the club and the Trust and her commitment is a lesson to us all.
CUOSC also awarded life memberships to the late David Nicholson, former member of the CUOSC Board and the late Brooks Mileson, former owner of Gretna FC and major donor to CUOSC.
