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.

Wing Wonders (Part Two) by ElephantintheRoom
As the sixties morphed into the seventies, wing wonders at Portman Road were a bit like London buses. Four had come along at once, though in truth one or two (like those same London buses) were also easy to miss.
2019/20 - Grating Expectations by tractorboykent
A lot of comments at the moment would suggest that we are in the midst of a(nother) crisis. Whilst the league table doesn’t reflect that, the perception is likely more based on our own expectations of where we’d be at this stage.
Wing Wonders (Part One) by ElephantintheRoom
It’s a curiosity of Town’s great years that the two big successes – winning the league under Alf Ramsey and the UEFA Cup under Bobby Robson were based on teams without true wingers.
John Cobbold’s Ace Gardener by ElephantintheRoom
For newer Town supporters perhaps, the name Colin Viljoen has disappeared into the mists of time. But for those of us who started supporting Town in the 60s his name is fondly recalled as a true great. His highlights reel alone (alas it exists only in memory) would mark him out as someone special.
Big Al by ElephantintheRoom
When the Kevin Beattie statue is revealed, I suspect it will be his great pal and fellow central defensive titan, Allan Hunter, who will do the revealing. What will be going through Big Al’s mind I wonder? Sadness at his friend’s passing – but mixed with fierce pride perhaps.
