He certainly does things differently, vegan food at the ground I`m a fan of the pie, but apparently excellent) new ground eco friendly ( whatever that is) etc

Hats off to him, there`s room for everyone, a brave move, not because I don`t think there will ever be female bosses, because there will be- no reason not to be.

At the moment doesn`t appear to be any with experience at any level of the men`s game, which is different from the womens game.

Can see that changing though.

On 19 August 2014 Shelley Kerr was appointed as manager of the Lowland Football League team Stirling University. Kerr`s appointment was the first time at that level in the United Kingdom a woman has been named as manager of a men`s club. She led the team to consistent top five league finishes and the British Universities Championship final in 2014–15

The new ground is going to be built entirely from wood.

"The new ground is going to be built entirely from wood."

Appropriate considering their club name !!!

I thought it would be a fire safety hazard but I'm guessing there is an easily googleable answer which explains why it's not.

Not sure this is a good idea.
Wasn't the Bradford Fire Disaster so bad because the stand was wooden.

Agreed but I'm assuming there must have been advances in fire safety and timber structures to get the ok to do it or it wouldn't make sense.

Strange league this season.

Carlisle were absolutely flying and playing some great stuff then had something like 10 games (or at least it seemed like it) postponed with Covid tests and other goings on and since starting back have absolutely bombed out form wise - along with playing three games a week to catch up - now looks unlikely they'll even make playoffs.
