Carson Trained With Cobblers
Tuesday, 29th Jan 2013 10:42
Midfielder Josh Carson spent Friday and Saturday training with League Two Northampton, but we understand he is still to hear whether he impressed manager Aidy Boothroyd. The Cobblers are one of a number of clubs interested in taking the Northern Ireland international on loan.
Last week, Blues boss Mick McCarthy said Carson would benefit from a spell away from Portman Road: “A few would like to have Josh Carson on loan and that would be something I would be open to.
“I think he needs to go and play some football. He’s just a young lad learning his trade and travelling with us and training with us is not good enough for him, he needs to play. So that might happen.”
The 19-year-old, who played in central midfield for the U21s at Brighton last night, a role he regularly filled when in the academy, is contracted to the Blues until the summer of 2014.
Another player who could move out on loan before the transfer window closes is right-back Jack Ainsley, who recently travelled to Preston to train with the League One side but was with the Lancastrians only very briefly as they instead added Leeds full-back Paul Connolly to their squad on loan.
We understand Ainsley was close to joining Capital One Cup finalists Bradford earlier in the season but the move was halted when the change of manager took place at Portman Road with new boss Mick McCarthy keen to look at all the players at his disposal.

A Decade Apart: 2005 v 2015 by wadey
On January 1st 2005 I was sitting (well standing) in what has been known as the North Stand or Sir Bobby Robson lower to you newbies. West Ham were the team coming to Portman Road. Being an East London boy, this was my biggest game of the season due to childhood abuse (banter) from school-mates. Sadly we lost 2-0. They ended getting promoted and we didn't.
