Carlisle snub U's Hackney enquiry

Simon Hackney
Hackney joined Carlisle from Woodley Sport in February 2005

Carlisle United have rejected a bid for winger Simon Hackney from League One rivals Colchester United.

Hackney, 25, attracted a loan and then permanent bid from the U's but managing director John Nixon admitted it was a simple decision for the club to make.

"Colchester have now made two enquiries about Simon Hackney, but both have been turned down," he told the club website.

"He is clearly a player that they like, but we had no hesitation in turning the enquiries away."

The Manchester-born wideman joined the Cumbrians from non-league Woodley Sports in February 2005, and has since made 138 appearances, scoring 17 goals.

He signed a three-year deal with the club in September 2007.
