20-year-old midfielder Anderson has come through the youth ranks at the Shore Road outfit, winning the Crusaders Reserves Player of the Year award at the end of the 2016/17 campaign, and already has experience in the Bluefin Sport Championship having enjoyed a loan spell at Knockbreda during the second half of last season.
On concluding Anderson’s signing, ‘Gers manager Niall Currie commented:
“Lloyd is an exciting signing and exactly what we were looking for in terms of a competitive, box-to-box midfielder. He has just signed a new contract with Crusaders and is rated very highly by Stephen Baxter, and I would like to thank Stephen for allowing this young player with a great future to come on loan to us. We’re delighted to get Lloyd on board as he will be another great option in midfield for us.”
“I would also like to thank the Chairman, Peter Clarke and the Board for the unbelievable backing they have given me in the transfer window. I’m more than happy with the squad which we have put together and now we need to get the squad integrated and get them all to hit the ground running.”
Welcome to Carrick Rangers, Lloyd! #AmberArmy
