Defender trains

Last updated : 24 December 2015 By The Chairman

Courtney Meppen-Walter, the former Manchester City youngster, is training with Athletic and is hoping to acquire a playing contract.

The left-sided defender played against the Latics in a pre-season friendly at Carlisle in the summer, but has since been out of favour with their manager, Keith Curle.

He joined Carlisle in 2013 after his release from prison after serving time for causing death by careless driving.
