CARLISLE United have reappointed Bantams stalwart Greg Abbott, this time as their head of recruitment.

Abbott is intrinsically linked with the Cumbrians having been their manager between 2008 and 2013, while he spent a decade at City with as a player.

The now 58-year-old returned to the Bantams in 2016 as their head of recruitment.

He went on to have a brief spell as caretaker manager in February 2018 after Stuart McCall's sacking, before becoming assistant manager that summer.

Abbott left the Bantams by mutual consent in November 2018.

He was at Valley Parade on Saturday though for the game between City and Carlisle, where he saw his new team go down 2-0 to goals from Lee Angol and Jamie Walker.
