Jacob Carney.


Young keeper who signed in July 2017 and is still eligible for the Under-18s.

During the 2017/18 season, Carney stayed at his own school rather than continuing his education at Ashton-on-Mersey as he was taken on as an Academy student.

In the following campaign, he made seven appearances between the sticks for Neil Ryan's side and is good with his feet as well as his hands.

He joined Stocksbridge Park Steels in the Northern Premier League Division One South East for the first two months of the 2019/20 season.
