Carter signs new one year deal

Former Scotland International, Brett Carter, has signed another one year deal with Whitehaven for the 2021 season. Carter joined Haven from his home town club, Barrow Raiders for the 2020 season. He has also played for Workington Town and made five appearances for the Scotland RL side playing in the 2013 Rugby League World Cup.

Thirty two year old Carter played three games for Haven in the curtailed 2020 season and is looking forward to wearing the chocolate, blue and gold in 2021. He said, “I’ve enjoyed the short amount of time I’ve spent at Whitehaven. I feel that with last season being cut short I never really got the chance to show what I can offer to the team. I’m looking forward to continuing the challenge both mentally and physically and see what I can offer to the club. I’m happy to have signed a deal and like everyone else looking forward to playing again.”

Haven Head Coach, Gary Charlton, is pleased to have Carter back on board, saying, “We know what we get with Brett. He’s a good utility back that can play a number of positions in the backs which gives us great cover.  He’s experienced, returns the ball strongly and is a good player. Happy to have him back on board.”

Carter joins a squad who are all keen to recommence training and playing after a year that saw the 2020 season restricted to only six games.

More good news for Whitehaven fans is that two of the Australian signings for 2021 will be arriving in West Cumbria next week.
