The Carlisle manager, Paul Simpson, said that he will do all he can to regain the club's League status after their relegation from the Third Division on Saturday. The Cumbrian side's 76-year stay in the Football League came to an end when they drew 1-1 at home to Cheltenham.

"I have told the players it's a test of character," Simpson said. "It's all systems go because we have to get straight back out of the Conference."

York City were also relegated after a 2-1 defeat by Leyton Orient. Several hundred fans invaded the pitch at the final whistle to salute the players. Their player-manager, Chris Brass, said: "It feels like we've just won promotion from the Third Division and not relegation."
