BIG DAY: Fans flood the pitch after Carlisle United beat Plymouth, saying them from the dreaded drop
BIG DAY: Fans flood the pitch after Carlisle United beat Plymouth, saying them from the dreaded drop

THIS week's Nostalgia will deep dive into Carlisle United's 1998/1999 season as they competed in the Football League Third Division.

The end of the '99 season was historic for Carlisle United.

The 1998/99 season boiled down to the very last moments between United and Plymouth to see if United faced the dreaded drop into the Conference League.

All Carlisle United had to do was win, under any circumstance.

United did not half give their fans a fright as they loomed upon the creeping reality of being relegated.

However, winning was exactly what United did.

Jimmy Glass, a goalkeeper who signed on an emergency loan from Swindon Town FC, scored on the final day of the season, keeping Carlisle in the Football League.

What a scary day United fans endured - but the scenes on the pitch after showed how emotional the moment was for those there.
