CONTRACT: Midfielder returns to Brunton Park

A familiar face comes home

31 January 2022

Carlisle United are delighted to welcome midfielder Jamie Devitt back to Brunton Park as he joins the Blues on a short-term deal which keeps him with the Blues until the end of the current campaign.

Devitt, 31, is no stranger to Carlisle having bagged 22 goals in 130 appearances in a three-year stay between 2016 and 2019.

The Dublin-born attack-minded playmaker started his career with Hull City, where he had loan spells with Darlington, Shrewsbury Town, Accrington Stanley, Bradford City, Rotherham United and Grimsby Town before making the switch to sign for Chesterfield in the summer of 2013.

He joined Morecambe during the January 2014 loan window and went on to net 12 goals in 98 appearances for The Shrimps. He finished the 2015/16 campaign as League Two’s top assist-maker and picked up a trio of Player of the Year awards.

His stay in Cumbria ended when he signed for Blackpool in the summer of 2019, where he had loan moves to Bradford and Newport before penning a deal with Barrow in January 2021. He scored once in 22 outings with the Bluebirds.

We'll have more reaction on the official website later.
