Jack Armer Signs Contract Extension At Carlisle United
Former Preston North End and Lancaster City loanee Jack Armer has signed a new two-year contract with Carlisle United Football Club, keeping the defender at the club until at least the summer of 2023. Armer joined the Blues on a one-year deal in August 2020 and a clause was activated at the end of last season which extended his stay until summer 2022.
Further talks have brought this new agreement following an excellent first year with the club for the versatile left-sided player. Having scored his first senior goal away at Barrow, he went on to make a total of twenty-eight appearances for Carlisle United last season.
Armer, who is a Scotland U19 International came through the ranks with his hometown club Preston North End, where he went on to captain the under-18 side. He then enjoyed an excellent loan spell with Lancaster City in the National League (North) prior to his move to Cumbria where he became a first team regular for Carlisle United.
Now that the football season has come to an ended the Carlisle United full-back will be changing sports over the summer playing cricket for Penwortham Cricket Club in the Lancashire Cricket League. Apparently he has been making some eye-catching bowling displays over the last few weeks.
Speaking about Jack Armer’s contract extension manager Chris Beech said: “I said last summer that I was really pleased to have been able to bring him here and that he could consider himself hard done by in being allowed to leave Preston North End.
We have watched him really settle with us and I think we all had smiles on our faces when he scored his first senior goal. After getting over a frustrating injury at the start of the season he has broken through and showed people the attributes we knew he had.
He’s been used in a number of positions and he’s one of those players who just gets on with it. When we activated his clause a few weeks ago I spoke about the fact that I’m really looking forward to working with him again, and this new deal means he knows he can now really knuckle down and focus on the job ahead. His attitude and the way he applies himself he’s a player who I think will only continue to progress, as we’ve already seen from him this time round.”
