Old Gold’s Carroll makes return to Haverfordwest County
Haverfordwest Counry have re-signed midfielder Declan Carroll following a spell in the top flight with Carmarthen Town.
Carroll joined the Old Gold from Haverfordwest County last season but has since returned to Haverfordwest to link up with manager Sean Cresser.
The 23 year-old was part of the Carmarthen Town side that reached the Europa League play-offs, before losing in the semi-final to Cardiff Metropolitan University.
The Bluebirds announced the news on Saturday afternoon, with the club describing him as an ideal addition.
“Manager Sean Cresser continues to build his squad and Pembrokeshire lad Declan is seen as the ideal addition to provide versatility in attacking roles.
The club are delighted that Declan has signed on for the coming season and would like to wish him all the best on a successful return.”
The midfielder said his goodbyes to the supporters of Carmarthen Town on social media, as well as expressing his delight in returning to the Bridge Meadow Stadium.
Thanks to everyone at Carmarthen. Loved my time there. Time for a change. 💛 https://t.co/lgcPXsLIwk
