Kevan Hurst made a dream debut for Carlisle United, scoring his first goal just over 24 hours after signing from Scunthorpe United.

The winger signed a two-year deal with the Cumbrians on Monday, for a fee which could rise to £145,000 and he instantly began to repay the faith.

Hurst, who started his career with Sheffield United, scored the opening goal at Stockport County after just 13 minutes but the joy was short-lived as Richard Keogh put through his own net just 60 seconds later.

His blushes were spared on 65 minutes when Joe Anyinsah scored what turned out to be the winner, leaving Stockport with just a point on the board.

Speaking after the game Carlisle boss Greg Abbott was delighted with his newest acquisition:

"Kevan's a good player, his quality on the ball was tremendous at times. His goal was terrific too, he took it so well.

"Kevan's got a great touch and his understanding of the game is first class. He'll definitely make us better."
