Castellón add another keeper in Jacob Carney
The 22-year-old Rotherham native joins after spending time at Sunderland, Manchester United and Portadown.
The transfer window is closed, but that doesn’t mean Castellón are finished. This morning, the Albinegres announced the signing of a third goalkeeper, Jacob Carney, who was out of contract after his deal with Sunderland expired. He has signed a one-year deal.
As well as playing extensively with the youth teams at Man Utd and Sunderland, Carney starred playing for Portadown in Northern Ireland in the 2020/21 season, making 22 appearances. He was highly praised at the time by then Portadown manager Matthew Tipton - “Most opposition managers single out Jacob after our games, and I am just delighted with everything overall since he joined the club”.
Carney also has one senior appearance in English football to his name, as he appeared for Sunderland in the EFL Trophy in 2021.
Competition for the starting spot in the first team will be fierce, with the club already signing Gonzalo Crettaz and Brian Schwake earlier on in the window - the Argentine seems to have earned the number one spot for now, but Carney will no doubt look to impress as much as possible in what will be a totally new environment for him at Castalia.
Welcome to Castellón, Jake!
