Jack Carty commits long-term future to Connacht

Connacht out-half Jack Carty has committed his long-term future to the province. 

He has signed a new deal which will see him remain at the Sportsground until 2025.

Carty has played 164 times for the Westerners, but has found opportunities at international level harder to come by.

He has ten Irish caps, but wasn't part of the most recent Autumn Nations Series squad until injury to Johnny Sexton resulted in a call-up from Andy Farrell.

I’m so thankful and grateful to be able to represent my home province for another 3 years," Carty said.

"The last 6 months have easily been the most enjoyable part of my career, and in that time I feel I’ve matured as a player, leader and person.

"The staff and my teammates have been incredible and create an environment where you can feel yourself growing daily.

"It’s easy to stay motivated because of them, even on a wet and windy day training in Galway!

"The club is represented by people from every pocket of Connacht, Ireland and beyond, but everyone is incredibly proud in representing Connacht and the West.

From speaking to Willie about the plans for the future, along with seeing first-hand the work of Friendy [Andy Friend] and the coaches, I’m excited about what lies ahead.

A special thanks to Friendy who goes above and beyond for his players. There is no doubt that this club and squad are in a position to challenge for silverware.

"I can’t wait to see where the journey takes us over the coming years and I’d like to thank Keith Matthews for his help and guidance.

"Along with that, I hope to add to my international caps."

Head Coach Andy Friend added:

This is brilliant news for everyone associated with Connacht. Jack is a top-class international out-half and a crucial player for our squad.

"He has an incredible skillset and excellent game management. He is therefore an extremely important person for us in how we want to play the game.

"Jack has also grown as a leader within our group. He has recently earned the right to be our matchday captain which is testament to his leadership qualities."

Connacht return to United Rugby Championship action this Friday with a home game against Ospreys.
