Smith signs for the 'Gers
Carrick Rangers are delighted to announce the signing of left-sided player Michael Smith.

Smith, whose preferred position is left-midfield, joins the club having worked with Rangers manager David McAlinden at Larne previously. Smith has previous playing experience in the top flight having played for Ballymena United over two spells, and has also previously played for Newington YC and Harryville Homers.

 

Smith has signed following a short period of time on trial with the club, which included an appearance during last Saturday’s friendly against Brantwood where he played in left-midfield.

 

Manager David McAlinden commented, “We’ve known Michael for a long time now, we know what makes him tick and what he’s about. We’ve always held the opinion that Michael is good enough to play in the Premiership, and unfortunately when he moved to Ballymena a few years ago he found himself at left-back which isn’t his preferred position so that didn’t do him any favours. He’ll come here and we’ll give him the opportunity to see if he’s good enough to play in the Premiership in the position he’s most comfortable in and we’re hopeful that he will show us that he is.”

 

Welcome to the club, Michael! #AmberArmy
