Midfielder Luke Joyce returned to Brunton Park during the summer of 2015 on a two-year deal.
Joyce kicked off his senior career when he joined United from Wigan on a youth loan at the end of the 2005/06 campaign. The deal was made permanent that summer and he went on to make 28 appearances and score three goals during his three-year stay with the Cumbrians.
Loan spells with Barrow and Northwich Victoria towards the end of his spell caught the eye of Accrington Stanley and he went on to become club captain and a near ever-present as he notched up over 275 appearances in the midfield playmaker role with ‘the club that wouldn’t die’. Currently at the club for at least one more season.
