Carlisle boss Greg Abbott has received the full backing of the club`s board of directors to continue in his role at Brunton Park next season.

Abbott's future with the Cumbrians had come under threat after they needed a final-day victory over Millwall to ensure their League One status.

But after the board met to discuss his role on Thursday, they unanimously decided that Abbott - who was only appointed in November - deserved the chance to build his own team and lead the club through a full campaign.

"We want to bring continuity and stability to the club. Now is not the time for more changes," chief executive David Allen told the club`s official website.

"Greg is in his first permanent post as a manager and he has a contract to take him through to the end of next season.

"We will be doing everything we can to help him bring success to Carlisle United in that period."
