Also Carlisle were having financial problems while Ivor Broadis was the player/manager so he had to make the decision of whether to sell their most valuable player. Their most valuable player happened to be called Ivor Broadis so he organised his own transfer to Sunderland for £18,000 which solved Carlisle's pressing financial problems.

Although that amount doesn't sound much now it was a lot of money in 1949.
