LOAN: Keeper commits to Blues until end of season

Stopper Jack Bonham extends stay with United

21 December 2017

Carlisle United can confirm that keeper Jack Bonham has today extended his stay with the club until the end of the current campaign.

Bonham, 23, initially signed for the Cumbrians in June and has since made 23 appearances with his adopted club.

He came through the youth ranks with Watford and went on to make one appearance for his first club, in the final game of the 2012/13 season, against Leeds United.

He enjoyed a two-month loan spell with Harrow Borough during his time with the Hornets, making nine appearances, until a broken hand forced his return to his parent club.

He joined Brentford on a two-year permanent contract in the summer of 2013 and signed a further three-and-a-half year deal in January 2015 having impressed with his attitude and application.

A two-month loan spell with Arlesey Town in November 2014 brought 15 appearances and he also represented the Republic of Ireland under-17 side during his younger days at Watford.

Manager Keith Curle said: “We still think there's more to come from Jack. He came here to get game time and he's enjoyed fighting for and having the number one shirt.

"We know where we think he can improve and we're looking forward to watching him develop even more under the guidance of Dan Watson. He has the attributes to have a very good career and we like working with him.

"He listens, he wants to learn and he's demanding a lot out of himself. It's good for us, his club and for him that he can now get his teeth into the second half of the campaign within our first team environment."

This deal remains subject to the clearance of all relevant paperwork.
