League I challenge suits Huddersfield Town’s Celtic loanee Graham Carey
Oct 2 2010 by Dougie Thomson, Huddersfield Daily Examiner
GRAHAM CAREY is enjoying the challenge of League I – and desperate to do everything he can to help Town to success.
It’s a first taste of football at this level for the 21-year-old who is on loan from Celtic and has previously played in the League of Ireland for Bohemians, the Scottish Premier with St Mirren and the Europa League with his parent club.
And the Dubliner who has won six Republic of Ireland Under 21 caps is eager to maximise his experience.
“I’m really enjoying myself here,” said the Shelbourne product who joined Celtic in 2005, when Martin O’Neill was manager.
“The club is great, the players and staff have really helped me settle in, I’ve just moved into a flat in the area, and I’m more than pleased to be here.”
Tuesday’s trip to Rochdale provided Carey with a sixth Town start and a seventh appearance in all, and he’s already showed his adaptability by operating all the way down the left side.
“I prefer to be left midfield or left wing – the higher up the pitch, the better – but if it means being in the starting XI, you’ll play anywhere,” he said.
Having helped Bohemians win the League of Ireland title in 2009, Carey was involved in a battle for survival with St Mirren last season, helping the Paisley side stay up at the expense of a Falkirk side which included current Town midfielder Scott Arfield.
