An experienced Stand-off who is prolific with the boot. Carl played his junior rugby at amateur club Thatto Heath before joining the St Helens Academy set-up aged 16 playing alongside the likes of England star James Graham. He managed to break into the first team in 2004 and played 2 top flight games before signing for the Leigh Centurions in 2005 but after finishing top points scorer for Leigh he made the move to Cumbria for his first spell with Town, signing for the club in December 2006. After 2 successful seasons Carl decided to move closer to home signing for the Blackpool Panthers mid season of 2009. Due to the demise of the Panthers after financial problems Carl headed to the Swinton Lions but the move didnt really work out and a move to Oldham followed. After 1 full season fans favourite Carl returned to Town in 2012 where he has remained ever since. Carl he has chalked up over 300 career appearences and well over 1000 career points.

Carl is enjoying his testimonial year and 2018 saw him instrumental in a flowing and eye catching team, although he will be disapointed with only 3 tries in the campaign his calm and consistant performances see him a regular starter. As mentioned he is an excellent goal kicker and a very popular member of the squad.

Carl signed a 1 year contract for 2019 as he enters his 10th year as a professional for Workington Town. A great servant and genuinely nice guy.

Have a great season Carl.
