Greg Abbott led Carlisle United to Wembley in his first full season in charge – the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy final against Southampton – at the end of the 2008/09 campaign.

It capped an entertaining first season for the Coventry-born manager, who had already been at the club for three years as assistant to Neil McDonald and JohnWard.

Having also worked with Brian Kidd at Leeds United’s academy, tutoring teams from Under-10 right up to Under-18 level plus the reserves, Abbott’s coaching experience is made complete by spells in the non-league game at Guiseley and Thackley.

As a player, he turned out for Bradford City, where he won the Division Three title in the 1984/85 season, as well as Halifax Town, Guiseley and Hull City.
