Ash Carter completes the set for Halesowen boss Paul Smith
Defender Ash Carter sees Halesowen Town as a club on the up after the former Kidderminster and Stourbridge man joined the Yeltz.
Left-sided defender Carter, 24, is manager Paul Smith’s latest acquisition for the 2020/21 campaign, with the Yeltz chief believing his squad is now ‘complete’.
Carter came through the youth ranks at Wolves before leaving for Kidderminster in 2016. He said: “I’m delighted to have signed for the club, it is clearly heading in the right direction on and off the field which is something I’m looking forward to.
“I’m looking forward to enjoying football again and playing with some new and old faces.”
The Yeltz were second in the Southern League Division One Central before the decision to null and void last season due to the coronavirus. Smith’s side also had an FA Trophy semi-final clash against Concord Rangers. A decision has still not been reached about whether the competition will be completed.
Carter left Stourbridge alongside strikers Aaron Lloyd and Anthony Dwyer. Lloyd has rejoined Alvechurch, while Dwyer has yet to announce a new club.
Meanwhile, Stafford Rangers have announced that 10 players have now committed to the club for next season. New boss Jody Banim has added Josh Burns, Danny Burns, Josh Green, Joe Cuff, Alex-Ray Harvey and Sam Coulson to his squad – following new arrival Ryan Wynter, plus Tom Thorley, Lewis King and Jon Moran from last season.
