Carson Completes Move

Grimsby Town Football Club is delighted to announce the signing of left-back Matty Carson on a two-year deal.

Carson began his career as a youngster in the Liverpool academy before joining Burnley’s youth set-up in 2019. During his time with the Clarets, he enjoyed loan spells at Nelson and Padiham.

In 2021, the Chester-born defender made the move to Accrington Stanley, where he went out on loan to Carrick Rangers, AFC Telford and Stalybridge Celtic. Carson then moved to Reading and made 10 appearances for the Royal’s last season prior to his release.

Speaking of his third signing of the summer, Head Coach David Artell said, “I’m really excited to work with him. He’s got some unbelievable attributes, especially in an attacking sense.”

“He’s got a real growth mindset on a young set of shoulders which is fantastic.

“I spoke to the Reading manager about him, and he said he’s a terrific guy, which is really important as well.”

On making the move to Blundell Park, Carson said, “I’m buzzing and I’m really looking forward to getting started.”

“I spoke to the manager about his ambitions for the club, and seeing the fans and their support last season, it’s a massive club to be at and I’m really looking forward to getting in front of them.

“I like to get forward, put in crosses and get shots off. If a free-kick comes up I’m definitely first up there, so hopefully I can score a few this season.”

Welcome to the Mariners, Matty!
