Carlisle spent time as a player for both Preston North End and Burnley in his career.

He has spoken about trying to take his own life in his 20s and in 2014 when he was hit by a lorry.

He later started his own charity called the Clarke Carlisle Foundation for Dual Diagnosis – a condition that has been described as “mental health problems co-occurring with drug or alcohol misuse”.
