Consett snap up ex-Sunderland Under-23s forward as their second signing of the summer

Attacker Carl Lawson has become Consett’s second signing of the summer after he agreed to move to Belle View Stadium for the 2020-21 season.

The 25-year-old, who can play anywhere up front, has been at Sunderland RCA for the last two seasons.

He attended the Sunderland AFC Academy, and was a regular in the Premier Reserve League for the Black Cats’ U23s.

Since leaving the Stadium of Light he has played for Whitby Town and Guisborough Town, as well as RCA.

His signing follows that of attacking midfielder Lewis Green, who has joined the club from Thornaby.
