Carson Out for the Season
Tuesday, 9th Apr 2013 14:36

On-loan midfielder Josh Carson will miss the rest of the rest of the season having broken his foot at the weekend. The 19-year-old has spent the last month trying to help York City to escape relegation from League Two and had been expected to remain there for the rest of the season.

But the Northern Ireland international fractured a fifth metatarsal during Saturday’s 1-1 home draw with Accrington Stanley – in which he created the Minstermen’s goal – and has now returned to the Blues.

York boss Nigel Worthington says he’s disappointed to have lost Carson, who managed to play on either wing, in central midfield and at left-back in five starts for his club: “He was enjoying it here and it’s a blow to lose him because he was doing a good job but it’s got to be a case of onwards and upwards and an opportunity for somebody else.

“He was injured in a tackle around the 80th minute but only felt it afterwards and we’ve since learned there’s a fracture, which is disappointing, but that’s football.”

Unlucky Josh, chin up son.

That's not a fortuitous injury to suffer when he's playing for his future. Hope he recovers quickly and gets another chance.

Josh has just been very unfortunate. He needed to play in lower-level competitive fixtures but not this singular experience as a result. Such a fairly serious injury is not good news to say the least.

However, this promising player will be back. We should all wish him well. Good luck with your recovery lad!

Hopefully he can come back next season & prove a lot of us wrong including myself.

Its interesting the population have a 5th metatarsal , apart from in Norfolk where the residents have up to a 4th metatarsal only , due I guess to the four toe syndrome.

Unlucky Josh, did a great job for York, hope to see you in a ITFC jersey sporting no. 22 next season and prove all the critics wrong. Hope you recover quickly and set Portman Road alight in the new season. Good luck Josh........................never any doubt that you are better than league 2.

Probably playing above his level with York : maybe he can re-join them next year in the Conference, where the other fat little piggies play.

Review from a York City fan....

Has had his loan cut short as he's fractured his foot.

His stats whilst at York are:
5 apps
0 goals.

Carson's been excellent in the games I've seen him. Tenacious, hard working, quick and committed.

Daleyitfc you sound like a complete a---hole!!!!! Do you know anything about the game of football at all or is there a little bit of the 'green eyed monster' in you??

newtownfan13 added 07:59 - Apr 10
itfcjoe your are spot on mate. Went down to the Plymouth Argyle match and thought Josh was outstanding, imo my mom, gave it his all, tenacious and hard-working as always and as you quite rightly point out, quick and 100% committed to his game, playing below his belt if you ask me, but his confidence is returning and that is great for us next season in an ITFC shirt no. 22. C'mon Josh you have all the attributes necessary for our league, hope you get better soon and come back to us tip top......
