Terriers snap up Carroll

JAKE CARROLL is set to become the latest League of Ireland player to cross the water after agreeing a deal with Championship side Huddersfield Town.

The St Patrick's Athletic midfielder is expected to be loaned back to the Inchicore club for the first half of the upcoming season to allow him complete his studies for a degree.

The 21-year-old former Belvedere player joined the Saints in 2010 and has also impressed at full-back.

Second-half goals from Niall Arthur, Ryan Peacock and Davy Kennedy proved crucial at Alfie Byrne Park last night, as St Patrick's College, Drumcondra progressed to the next stage of the Kehoe Shield with an impressive 3-12 to 1-10 victory against Fingal.

JM Sheridan's free-taking kept Fingal in the contest up to the interval as they trailed 0-8 to 0-6.

The tie looked set to go down to the wire but Pat's found an extra gear, as points from Conor Joyce, Eoin Barry and a goal by Arthur set them on their way to a resounding victory.
