The Football League Paper - - NEWS - By Luke Mur­ray

NIGEL Worthington has handed Josh Carson an ex­ten­sion to his stay at York – with the caveat that the mid­fielder ups his goal threat.

The 20-year-old joined the Min­ster­men on loan from Ip­swich last sea­son be­fore sign­ing a per­ma­nent deal in Septem­ber and will now stay un­til the end of next sea­son.

The North­ern Ire­land in­ter­na­tional has made 25 ap­pear­ances in all com­pe­ti­tions this sea­son, scor­ing three goals.

And while Worthington has been im­pressed by his ef­forts, he wants to see more from his young star.

“I am de­lighted to get Josh on a longer con­tract,” said Worthington. “He did very well for us when he came in on loan at the end of last sea­son and he’s come in at this sea­son and worked very hard.

“He’s im­prov­ing all the time and it will be good for him to get con­tract mat­ters out his mind and he can fo­cus on his game. Hope­fully he can con­tinue to work hard and sup­ply op­por­tu­ni­ties for goals as well as maybe get one or two more him­self.”

STAY­ING ON: Josh Carson
