CARLISLE’S pro­mo­tion chal­lenge has fal­tered in re­cent weeks, but a dou­ble swoop could give them a lift.

Man­ager Keith Curle has snapped up former West Brom mid­fielder Joe Ward, re­leased by the Bag­gies in Jan­uary, and former Rochdale striker James Hooper.

The two 20-year-olds have agreed deals un­til the end of the sea­son.

Both play­ers were on the bench in last Tues­day’s 0-0 draw against Lu­ton, with Hooper com­ing on as a late sub­sti­tute.
