Carlisle striker joins Darlington

Danny Carlton
Carlton has scored three goals in 51 appearances for Carlisle

Carlisle United striker Danny Carlton has joined Darlington on loan.

Carlton, 25, who joined United from Morecambe in June 2007, will stay at the Darlington Arena until the end of the season.

Carlisle manager Greg Abbott told the club's official website: "I think Darlington are a terrific club and this is a good move for him.

Meanwhile, defender Darren Campion, 21, has been released from his contract at Brunton Park.

Campion made four appearances for Carlisle after joining from Birmingham City in September 2007.

His departure from Brunton Park follows a loan spell with Blue Square North side Workington Reds, who were keen to extend his stay at the club.

Reds' manager Darren Edmondson told BBC Radio Cumbria: "I knew last week that Darren had disciplinary problems at Carlisle.

"He's gone back home to Birmingham and won't be with us unfortunately."

Carlisle could also be set to hand some of their trialists extended stays with the club.

The Cumbrians are looking at three players - former Leeds and York City midfielder Gavin Rothery, Bolton midfielder Michael Burns and Bradford Park Avenue midfielder Matty James.

"They've done very well," said Abbott. "We're optimistic that we can do something with them.

"They've come in and not looked out of place. The levels they're at have been very good."

Rothery, 21, is a former England under-19 international who joined Harrogate Town after being released by York City in December.

Burns, a former Liverpool trainee, undertook an unsuccessful trial with Gillingham during the summer.

James joined Bradford Park Avenue following his departure from Blue Square North side Farsley Celtic.
