Goalkeeper Trevor Carson
signed a two-year contract for Sunderland
in October 2010, keeping him on Wearside until summer 2012. The Northern Ireland U21 international served as Sunderland
's second-choice stopper for much of the 2009-10 season, beating off competition from Marton Fulop to back up Craig Gordon. Carson was released by the Black Cats at the end of last season without making his full debut for Sunderland
, but did appear in friendly matches as well as featuring regularly on the bench for the senior side.
He was included in a senior Northern Ireland squad for the first time in February 2010 and was named on the bench for the 1-0 defeat to Lorik Cana's Albania.Signed from Killyleagh Boys in 2004, Carson spent time on loan at Chesterfield
in the 2008-09 season, making 20 appearances. A shoulder injury which eventually required surgery disrupted the early part of Carson's 2010-11 campaign after he had a spell backing up Simon Mignolet in the absence of Craig Gordon.
He returned to full fitness in January 2011 and joined League Two side Lincoln City
on loan later that month.Carson made 16 appearances for the Imps and returned from Lincoln on March 23, joining League One outfit Brentford
the following day. He made one appearance for the Bees. Carson was loaned to League One outfit Bury in September 2011 to gain additional first-team experience. The keeper enjoyed a successful spell at Gigg Lane, playing eight games prior to being recalled back to Sunderland
following an injury to Simon Mignolet. Trevor then joined Hull City
on loan in January 2012 but didn't make an appearance during his spell at the KC Stadium, returning in mid-February. Shortly afterwards however, he rejoined Bury, making his second debut in a 1-1 draw with Leyton Orient
in late February.
Trevor signed a two year deal with the Shakers over the summer following his release from the Stadium of Light.
In total, Trevor has made a total of 17 appearances for the Shakers (upto and including the 2011/12 Season)
