TRANMERE Reserves came from a goal down to beat Carlisle Reserves 2-1 at Kirklands in the Central League Cup.
Chris Chantler put the Cumbrians ahead but Jean-Louis Akpa Akpro and Antonie Boland gave Shaun Garnett's men all three points.
Tranmere deployed Cole Stockton in an unfamiliar role on the right of midfield.
TRANMERE: Mooney; Morris, Boland, Gumbs, Horwood; Stockton, Power, Rowe (Baggie 45), Kirby; Sodje (Davies 70), Akpa Akpro. Substitutes (not used): Ramsbottom, Shaw, Maher.
CARL TREMARCO has signed an extended deal with Inverness Caledonian Thistle which will keep the former Tranmere defender in the Highlands until May 2016.
Tremarco, who is 28, joined Caley Jags last summer after making 52 appearances for Rovers, 27 for Wrexham then 89 for Macclesfield Town. He spent last season at Maltese Premier League side Floriana, where he played 22 games.
KIDDERMINSTER HARRIERS appointed former Tranmere defender Andy Thorn as their new first team manager this week.
Thorn, 47, an FA Cup winner with Wimbledon in 1988, also had spells at Newcastle, Crystal Palace and Hearts, as well as Rovers, where he played 40 games between 1996 and 1998, when injury forced his retirement.
Thorn later forged a career as a well-respected coach and scout and was manager at Coventry City during the 2011-12 season.
