Brad Carsley Leaves the Giant Axe For Charnock Richard
Charnock Richard Football Club have this afternoon announced the signing of striker Brad Carsley from Lancaster City. Carsley arrives at Mossie Park with an excellent goal scoring record for his previous clubs Lancaster City, Longridge Town and Bamber Bridge.
Carsley, leaves the Giant Axe with heavy heart following greater demands in his work commitments and there have been a number of clubs interested in signing the striker when news broke on social media that his increased workload meant he could not fit in with the commitment needed in the Northern Premier League. He arrives at Charnock Richard having made forty-two appearances, scoring sixteen goals for Lancaster City with a further eighty-seven goals for Longridge Town, prior to that he scored thirty-six goals for Bamber Bridge.
Speaking about the move Brad Carsley said, “I’m very familiar with the set up here at Charnock Richard, I have played against them numerous times as a player for Lostock St Gerards and Longridge Town when I was in the West Lancashire League. The set up here speaks for itself, the facilities and pitch are fantastic. My brother Troy was here last season before making the move to Longridge Town so I came down as a fan when he was playing. I’d like to thank everyone involved at Lancaster City for my time at the Giant Axe, the staff, the fans, my team mates and everyone else linked with the club. I had a great 18 months with there and wish them all the best with the coming season.
I would love to win the league at Charnock Richard along with other silverware, I have spoke with the manager and his brother Adam for a few days now, discussing things to bring me to the club and they rang all the right bells. I already know some of the lads in the dressing room and their qualities and I’m looking forward to getting to know the other players as well. I am hungry for the challenge and can’t wait to get going in the new season.”
