Harry McKirdy - One year deal at Carlisle
« on: June 11, 2019, 02:58:12 PM »
Carlisle United have signed former Aston Villa striker Harry McKirdy.

The 22-year-old left Villa Park at the end of the season and has agreed a one-year deal with Carlisle.

McKirdy did not make a first-team appearance for Villa and had loan spells at Stevenage, Crewe and Newport.

"He fits the profile of the kind of player I'm looking for in that he's young, ambitious and hungry at what is a pivotal moment in his career," said Carlisle boss Steven Pressley.

"He's a player who is very attack-minded and who likes to score and create goals," Pressley added to the club website.

"Positionally he's very versatile, with the ability to play wide on either side or centrally, depending on how we approach the game.

"He's sharp, he travels well with the ball and he's a terrific finisher."

Good luck to him, from what I've seen I think he'll do really well at that level, I reckon he'll end up in the championship in a couple of years and have a decent career.

Never made the first team but did succeed in knocking the African car reverser onto page 2.

Good luck to him. Is O'Hare back at Villa now or has he gone?

I agree all the best but heís far too lightweight for the upper leagues but thatís my opinion only.
