Brett Carter is the latest player to become a member of Cumbrian rugby league’s full-house club.

Carter, 30, has signed for Whitehaven after serving both Workington Town and Barrow in a successful pro career.

The South Cumbrian can play in a variety of positions, most notably as a winger or full-back, and has agreed a one-year deal at the Recreation Ground.

Carter has made 188 first team appearances since making his debut for Workington in May 2009 against Dewsbury Rams.

The bulk of those performances were for Town and in those 141 games he clocked up 52 tries.

He became a Scottish international in 2013 when he represented the Bravehearts in the Rugby League World Cup, making two appearances and scoring a try.

Carter then moved to Barrow for the 2017 season where he made 47 appearances across three seasons, scoring 14 tries and kicking eight goals.

He was also part of the Cumbria squad that won the Rugby League Nines tournament in 2012, scoring the last-minute winning try against Featherstone in the final at Headingley.

After signing his new deal with Haven, Carter said: “I couldn’t be happier to sign for Whitehaven and I’m really looking forward to it.

“It’s a new challenge for me in a tough league.

“I like to challenge myself and I reckon Whitehaven will be a good place to do it.

“I know a lot of the lads up there already and I’m looking forward to getting started.”

Whitehaven’s head coach Gary Charlton had an even better full-house record as a player as he can add Carlisle Border Raiders to Whitehaven, Barrow and Town in his list of previous sides.

After capturing Carter’s signature he said: “Brett is another player that can play in a couple of different positions and gives us that flexibility in the backs.

“I’ve known him a few years and he’ll fit into the squad and buys into what we are about.

“He’s a good addition to the squad – he’s Cumbrian and has Championship experience.”
