Biographical Text

Capped by Northern Ireland at Youth and Under-21 level, Carlisle began his career as a trainee with Crystal Palace, earning a full contract in September 1996.

He featured in 46 first team league matches while at Selhurst Park, scoring 3 goals.

In October 2001 Carlisle moved on loan to Swindon Town where he played in 11 matches, netting 2 goals.

In March 2002 he moved on a free transfer to Bristol Rovers and his two year stay there produced 14 goals in 71 matches.

He was released by Rovers and joined Leyton Orient in June 2005. But he found it difficult to command a regular place with the O’s and only made 28 appearances, scoring three goals.

Carlisle moved to Exeter City in January 2006 making his first appearance for the Grecians at Morecambe. Unfortunately his season was ended prematurely with a broken leg.

At the end of the season, departing manager Alex Inglethorpe released Carlisle on a free transfer.

However in October 2006, he was re-signed by new Exeter manager Paul Tisdale after impressing as an early season trialist.

Carlisle was to score in both of the play-off semi-final games against local rivals Torquay United.

Although offered an improved contract by the Grecians, Carlisle chose to join Torquay United in May 2008.

After netting 10 goals in 61 starts for the Gulls, he was released in July 2010.

However, Torquay made a u-turn the following month and signed Carlisle on again.

He was released once more in December 2010 and three months later signed for Truro City.

In March 2017 Wayne rejoined Exeter as Head of Coaching.
