Carlisle United manager Steven Pressley spoke to the club website about the arrival of Nathaniel Knight-Percival: “He’s a player we’ve been pursuing for some time so it’s been a little bit of a slow burner.

“I met him about six weeks ago. I’d done a lot of work on him and I got a really good feeling from him.

“He’s had a number of options and a number of things to consider, so he’s taken the summer to decide on what it is he wants to do.

“I invited him up here last week so he could have a look around at what we can offer him and I think that cemented it. He was hugely impressed with the facilities and thankfully he informed us this week that he would be joining us.
