Accrington Stanley have announced via their website, that Marcus Carver has extended his deal with the club.
The twenty-year-old youth graduate and extended his stay with the club for a further six months and will become the seventh player to sign a new contract. Carver started to make an impact for Accrington Stanley at the start of last season but suffered an injury then went out of loan.
The young striker told the official club website “I’ve signed for another year and hopefully I can make my mark this season. I struggled with an injury towards the end of last season but I’m fit again now and looking to come back for pre-season and show the gaffer what I’ve got.
“I think the injury has actually made me stronger. I’ve been watching from the sides for about four months and all I was thinking that I never want to finish with football. What would I have without it? Nothing.
“I knew I wasn’t in contract for this season but when the manager came to me and told me he wanted me for another year I was delighted. I’m hoping to keep myself fit throughout the season and see what happens.
“During the last pre-season I got a couple of games and didn’t do too badly then got a couple of league games under my belt before going out on loan. It’s all about gaining experience through playing games, wherever that is.
“I’ll be 21 this year so hopefully I can make my mark. James Gray is a great example for me. He’s been called up to the Northern Ireland squad for the first time and last season towards the end he was fantastic. I need to take a leaf out of his book, take my opportunity and push on.”
