The Shrimps snap up Carson

5 January 2022

Morecambe Football Club can confirm the signing of goalkeeper Trevor Carson, who joins on-loan from Scottish Premiership side Dundee United until the end of the 2021/22 season, subject to international clearance.

Carson, a Northern Ireland international, joins up with former boss Stephen Robinson, who has acted quickly to acquire the services of the 33-year-old. 

The pair spent three years together at Fir Park with Carson starting both Cup Finals in his first season with Motherwell, and Robinson looking forward to linking up with his former captain. 

He said: “He is a full-international goalkeeper who has played at top, top levels, I had Trevor previously at Motherwell, I signed him and he helped us to two Cup Finals. 

“He was excellent for me, my captain at times, what he brings is a vast amount of experience, he will come in and compete with Kyle [Letheren] and he just gives us a bit more experience that we haven’t got in the squad at the moment. 

“In terms of talent, there is absolutely no doubting that, he is a top, top goalkeeper and it was really important for us to get someone of his quality in the building.”
