Carson Completes York Switch
Thursday, 12th Sep 2013 11:53
Ex-Blues midfielder Josh Carson has completed his move to his former loan side York City. The 20-year-old, whose Town contract was terminated by mutual consent last week, has signed a deal until the end of the season.
Nigel Worthington, the manager of the League Two club, said: "Josh has got experience at Championship level and is a young international player.
“He came in last year when we were having a tough time at the club and I felt he did very well and worked very hard for the team prior to the injury when he had to go back to Ipswich.
“So, when there was an opportunity there to pick him up until the end of the season, I was very keen to try and get him and I'm delighted that we’ve managed to acquire his services".
Carson, who was given his first full Northern Ireland caps by Worthington during his time as national coach, made five appearances for York last season before his spell was curtailed by a foot injury.
Meanwhile, academy second-year scholar Cemal Ramadan came on as a 71st-minute sub as the Republic of Ireland U17s lost 1-0 to Slovakia in the second of their two friendlies in Bratislava this morning.
Ramadan was a starter in the first game on Tuesday, which ended 3-0 to the home side.

The 1994/95 season ended with the Town bottom of the Premier League with only seven wins to their name. Nevertheless the season had its bright spots - Adam Tanner scoring to earn a 1-0 win at Anfield, our first victory there; the Budgies being relegated on the last day of the season, having accumulated 16 more points (43) than we managed; and in September 1994 this match against reigning Premier League Champions, Manchester United.
Lambert's Goals Take Town to the Top by clivebleedingthomas
The summer of 1974 had been an anxious period for Town fans. Will he or won’t he leave us? That question hung over us as uncertainty grew about Bobby Robson’s future. Don Revie had left Leeds to take up the England job and Bobby was seen as his likely successor.
And Along Came Jim by Moggasknockdown
Life without football is a funny old thing. Currently, in these most testing of times, the idea of missing football might seem like a triviality, an inconsequential itch amidst an existential crisis. Many of us miss the routine of it, the communality and regularity of it.
City Floored by Brilliant Viljoen by clivebleedingthomas
My father, Owen Sturley Nunn, known as 'Bob' to his many friends at Portman Road, kept an archive of newspaper reports of notable Town matches. I inherited the archive upon his death in 1987 and continued to keep reports of noteworthy games.
The Way Back From Here Will Be Long, But There is a Way by SomethingBlue
It's a delicate situation now, perhaps an existential one. People need to stay engaged, focused and angry – which I know isn't easy to do given the endless stream of kicks in the teeth. But articulated vocally and consistently – which hasn't ever happened yet – it will have an effect in time.
