Another promising Manchester United goalkeeper continues to pass every test put in front of him.
Jacob Carney agreed a loan deal in January to move to Northern Irish top flight side Portadown.
It’s going pretty well so far. Carney has just been voted player of the month by Portadown fans for February.
The young goalkeeper is just 19-years-old and is racking up senior appearances at senior level.
Last season United sent him out on loan in non-league, where he played for Stockbridge Steels, and in the first half of this campaign at Brighouse Town, where he also won a player of the month award.
United wanted to push him further, and a move to Northern Ireland’s top flight has done that.
Portadown have been struggling for form, but Carney has helped them secure draws in their last two games after a three-game losing streak.
The queue in goal in front of him at United is a big one, but it is expected to thin down this summer, with Sergio Romero and Joel Pereira set to be released, and Lee Grant possibly moving into a coaching role.
Another loan at a higher level probably awaits Carney next season and the experience he has gained already should be a big help.
He has already trained for United’s first team last season, and if he keeps on making a name for himself out on loan, he could get another chance in the summer.
