Former Portsmouth loanee Trevor Carson joins Cheltenham after his release by Bury

Goalkeeper Trevor Carson has moved to Cheltenham Town on a free transfer following his recent release by fellow League Two club Bury.

The former Northern Ireland Under-21 international, who began his career at Sunderland and had been on the Gigg Lane books since 2012, has signed a two-year with Cheltenham, who have been looking for a new ‘keeper since the departure of previous custodian Scott Brown to Scottish Premiership side Aberdeen.

Carson was loaned out by The Shakers to Portsmouth for the entire 2013-14 campaign, playing 40 matches as the South Coast side flirted with relegation to the Conference before ending the season strongly to finish 13th.

The 26-year-old becomes the fifth arrival at Whaddon Road this summer, with Asa Hall, Paul Black, Andy Haworth and Lee Vaughan also added to Mark Yates’ squad for 2014-15, and was relieved to have his future sorted out.

“It’s not nice being on the scrapheap and basically out of a job,” he told Cheltenham’s official website.

“It’s the first time I have experienced it in 10 years and it is a worry, especially when you have a young family.

“Mark was the first manager I spoke to and he rang whilst I was on my honeymoon. People were telling me to perhaps wait but I felt good straight away because he was honest and up front with me.

“Straight away it felt right so I decided to go for it.”
