Left-back makes switch to the U's

Jake Carroll has become Cambridge United’s first new signing in the January transfer window.

The 25-year-old left-back has agreed terms to make the switch to the Cambs Glass Stadium from Hartlepool United.

Caroll began his career with St Patrick’s Athletic, making his senior debut in 2011 and going on to play 33 times for the Saints.

He hopped over the Irish Sea in 2013 to sign for Huddersfield Town, where he made six appearances.

Carroll had loan spells with Bury Town and Partick Thistle before joining Hartlepool ahead of the 2015/16 season, and having become a regular, he made 62 appearances for the North East club.

Carroll has signed a deal at the U’s until the end of the 2018/19 campaign.

“I’m really pleased to be here because it’s a club clearly going in the right direction and with real ambition,” said Carroll.

“I’m relishing the chance to play my part in a team that is challenging in the top half of the division. I have heard nothing but good things about the club and its close-knit group of players, so I’m really looking forward to it.

“I’ll be looking to get my head down, work hard, and earn a place in the team to show everyone around the club what I can do.”

And Cambridge United manager Shaun Derry added: “We’re delighted to welcome Jake into our squad, as he is a player we have been tracking since the previous transfer window.

“He’s very much a different type of full-back to the players we already have within our group and he will be able to contribute in a different way.”
