Man Utd, Chelsea check on Carlisle starlets

Manchester United and Chelsea had scouts in the stands for Aston Villa's FA Youth Cup victory over Carlisle United this week.

United and Chelsea were checking on the talent in Carlisle's team, which had dumped the former out of the tournament in the previous round.

Carlisle's run to the quarter-finals captured the attention of youth football's biggest hitters who were keen to see how Eric Kinder's team - which includes seven Cumbrians - were able to get so far.
