Jack Armer Joins Carlisle United On One Year Contract
Former Lancaster City and Preston North End defender Jack Armer has joined Carlisle United becoming the clubs sixth signing of the summer. Armer, joins the Blues on a one year contract with an option of a further year, the Scotland U19 international, who came through the ranks with his hometown club where he was captain of the U18 side.
Renowned for having a solid left foot he has been utilised as a left-sided centre back and left back, in a fruitful loan spell with Lancaster City last season, where he earned a regular starting place in Mark Fell’s first team squad.
Speaking about signing for Carlisle United Jack Armer said, “It was great news when the gaffer offered me the deal, I found out at the end of March that I wasn’t getting a new contract with Preston North End, I was on to a few clubs straight away and there were offers of going on trial at some clubs, but ideally I wanted something on paper and when this came along I felt like it was the perfect move for me.
The thing that really got me was how he talked about the way he wants us to play football. He also said that there’s a good opportunity for me here and on a personal level, when I found out about this I knew it was it was going to be best for me. Being released spurred me on through the lockdown and I have done a lot of work and I feel fit, probably the fittest I’ve ever been to be honest.
I think I’ve got a great chance to play games here and to prove myself. We’ve seen with the lad that went to Everton that it’s a great stepping-stone. If I can get 20 games under my belt at 19-years-old then that will prove that it has been a great chance. I played left back and left wing back last year and I like to get forward and get crosses into the box.
I can‘t wait to get started it’s been a long time waiting to find out when the league was going to kick off again and it’s good to know that now, especially with the Carabao Cup being the week before. Like I say, hopefully I’ll get a chance early on because I haven’t played a game for four months and I have really missed it.”
