Paul Simpson says he wants to create a dressing room culture with higher standards at Carlisle United next season.

The Blues boss, who is rebuilding his squad for the return to League Two, said the changing room was “not policed very well” by players in 2023/24.

United’s boss has referred on a number of occasions to a lack of commitment to the cause in certain quarters.

That is something he wants to remove – and restore the kind of values that are typically associated with success.

It comes down to bringing in more good characters, says the United boss, who has so far brought in Aaron Hayden as Carlisle’s first summer signing.

“All of the dressing rooms that I’ve been involved in – the good ones anyway – they did police it themselves,” Simpson said.

“Now, at the start of next season, me and the staff are going to police it, and we’re going to see if we can actually create that environment where they are able to police themselves.
