Career Biography

Goalkeeper Trevor Carson became Ronnie Moore’s sixth signing of the 2015 summer when he arrived from Cheltenham Town.

The Northern Ireland international still had a year to run on his contract at Whaddon Road but Moore was determined to land his man and struck a deal with The Robins.

Voted Town’s Player of the Year for 2014/15, Carson was thrilled to seal a move back to the north-east after spending six years at Sunderland whom he joined as a sixteen-year-old.

During his time at the Stadium of Light, the agile shot-stopper built his senior experience with loan moves to Chesterfield, Lincoln City, Brentford, Bury and Hull City.

In 2012 he was released by The Black Cats and was quickly snapped up by Bury on a permanent deal and subsequently also starred during an extended loan stay at Portsmouth.

Carson joined Cheltenham for the start of the 2014/15 campaign but, despite a series of heroic performances, he couldn’t stop them slipping in to the Conference.
