Whitehaven confirm capture of Brett Carter

Whitehaven have announced the signing of Barrow full-back Brett Carter on a one-year deal. 

Carter becomes the latest player to sign for Gary Charlton’s side in 2020. He has made 188 career appearances, the majority of which came for Workington between 2009-2016.

He joined the Raiders ahead of the 2017 campaign and made 47 appearances over three seasons, scoring 14 tries and adding eight goals.

Carter was also part of the Cumbria Squad that won the Rugby League Nines tournament back in 2012.

Last year, he made headlines after being filmed falling from a Christmas tree in Barrow Town Centre, with the club dealing with the matter internally.

Discussing his decisions to join the club, Carter said: “I couldn’t be happier to sign for Whitehaven and I’m really looking forward to it.

“It’s a new challenge for me in a tough league, I like to challenge myself and I reckon Whitehaven will be a good place to do it. I know a lot of the lads up there already and I’m looking forward to getting started.

Head coach Gary Charlton added: “Brett is another player that can play in a couple of different positions and gives us that flexibility in the backs.

“I’ve known him a few years he’ll fit in to the squad and buys in to what we are about. He’s a good addition to the squad, he’s Cumbrian and has Championship experience.”
