The 29-year-old, brother of full-back Reece, joins from Glentoran for an undisclosed fee.
Glendinning rose through the youth ranks at Linfield, enjoying a six month loan spell at Ballyclare Comrades before returning to the Blues as he went on to make 87 appearances throughout his time at Windsor Park.
A move to Ballymena United came next as he linked up with his old boss David Jeffrey, helping the Braidmen defeat the ‘Gers to win the League Cup final in his first season.
Amassing 158 appearances for the Warden Street side, Glendinning then signed for the Glens at the start of last season.
However, eager to play more regularly, he now becomes Stuart King’s third summer addition alongside Cameron Stewart and Curtis Allen.
On arriving at the Loughview Leisure Arena, Ross Glendinning said,
“I am absolutely buzzing to be here; my brother Reece spoke very highly of the Club and from my conversations with Stuart I felt like I was really wanted, which was one of the main reasons I chose to sign for Carrick.
I didn’t play as much as I would have liked last season at the Glens and in truth, I didn’t enjoy that aspect of it, so it’s up to me now to take my chance and nail down my place in the team.”
Delighted to bolster his goalkeeping options, Stuart King added,
“Ross is somebody I know really well and that my staff and I think very highly of. He is an experienced goalkeeper having played in the Premiership across the last decade, so will add very good competition in that position.
We were on the lookout to add another ‘keeper and when Ross became available, we were eager to sign him. For him, he had other options on the table but he wanted to come to Carrick and I’m delighted he has made that decision.”
Welcome to the Club, Ross!
