Carlisle United are delighted to confirm that an agreement has been reached with defender Jack Armer for a new two-year deal, keeping the player at the club until at least the summer of 2023.
Former-Preston defender Armer joined the Blues on a one-year deal in August 2020, and a clause was activated at the end of last season which extended his stay until the summer of 2022.
Further talks have brought this new agreement following an excellent first year with the club for the versatile left-sided player.
Having scored his first ever senior goal in the April away game at Barrow, he made a total of 28 appearances in a blue shirt through 2020/21.
Manager Chris Beech said: “I said last summer that I was really pleased to have been able to bring him here and that he could consider himself hard done by in being allowed to leave Preston.
“We’ve watched him really settle with us and I think we all had smiles on our faces when he scored his first senior goal. After getting over a frustrating injury at the start of the season he has broken through and showed people the attributes we knew he had.
“He’s been used in a number of positions and he’s one of those players who just gets on with it. When we activated his clause a few weeks ago I spoke about the fact that I’m really looking forward to working with him again, and this new deal means he knows he can now really knuckle down and focus on the job ahead.
“With his attitude and the way he applies himself he’s a player who I think will only continue to progress, as we’ve already seen from him this time round.”
Armer, who turned 20 in April, is a Scotland under-19 international who came through the ranks with his hometown club where he went on to captain the under-18 side.
He enjoyed a fruitful loan spell with Lancaster, prior to his move to Cumbria, where he earned a regular starting place in the team.
Keep an eye on the Lancashire sporting press this summer, Jack is currently ripping up the local cricket leagues with what have been, apparently, some eye-catching bowling displays. Rumour has it his batting still needs a bit of work.
