Carlisle midfielder Peter Murphy has penned a new two-year with the club.

The 24-year-old's new contract begins on July 1 and manager Paul Simpson is delighted to have retained his services.

Despite securing their League Two status via the play-offs, Simpson is pleased with the options he has at his disposal next season.

"His contract starts from July 1 and it's good to get it all finalised," explained Simpson to the club's official website.

"I'm really happy with the squad I have in place at the moment."

Simpson has recently lost Tom Cowan and Matt Glennon but is philosophical about losing the pair.

"Obviously I'm disappointed to lose the likes of Matty and Tom, but that is all part and parcel of football," he added.

"Players come and go and you just have to get on with it and make sure that you bring in the right calibre of player to replace them."
