Carty agrees Connacht extension


Jack Carty has signed a new two-year extension to his contract with Connacht which will tie him to the province until the end of the 2020/21 season.

A product of the Connacht Academy, Carty made his debut for the province in September 2012 and has gone on to make 118 appearances for the Westeners, while he has represented Ireland at Under-20 level.

“I am hugely proud that as a Connacht man I have come through the grassroots structures in the province and gone on to play professional rugby," Carty commented. "I have a great support network in rugby and away from the game and I am very grateful for the guidance they show me.

"Connacht is an exciting place to be at the moment both on and off the field and we are extremely ambitious about what we can achieve in the coming seasons. I look forward to contributing to those plans”.

Carty has scored 109 points in his 12 appearances in the Guinness PRO14 this season and head coach Andy Friend is delighted to have secured his services for another two years.

“We are delighted to announce that Jack Carty has signed a two year contract extension to take him up to the end of the 2020/21 season," Friend said.

"Jack is a product of the outstanding work being done at club and schools’ level throughout the province and within the Connacht Academy. He is an example of what our Grassroots to Green Shirts Vision represents. He will continue to be an important player for the province in the seasons ahead."
