French midfielder Sébastien Carole has joined Tadcaster Albion to bolster the squad for the run-in.
Carole, 33, started his career in France with AS Monaco where he was signed at the age of 14. Overall, he was at Monaco for six years which saw him part of the squad which reached the Champions League final in 2004. During his time on the books of the Ligue Un side, Carole went out on loan to Premier League side West Ham United.
In the mid noughties, Carole decided to move to England permanently signing for Brighton & Hove Albion. The wide man went on to make 42 appearances for the Seagulls scoring two goals.
The name Seb Carole will ring the bell of Leeds United fans after joining the Yorkshire side in 2006. Carole spent two years at Taddy’s local neighbours scoring three times in 41 appearances and was part of the famous -15 squad which also included assistant-manager Matt Heath.
Following his time at Leeds, the tricky winger went on trial with Spanish giants Valencia CF and Atletico Madrid.
Carole has also represented and scored for his native country of France for several years from youth level.
The winger joins Taddy to help strengthen the squad for a hectic schedule to end the season with the club looking to achieve promotion.
Carole spoke about how the move came about: “Heathy [Matt Heath] contacted me about the possibility of a move and having been with him at Leeds, I was more than happy to help Taddy. I am also honoured to help try and get us over the line.”
Tad boss Billy Miller expressed why he’s brought Carole in: “We need to have a big squad to cope with the amount of games we have in such a short space of time and his quality and experience at the highest level will be invaluable.”
Fixture congestion is something The Brewers will have to deal but with the addition of Carole allows rotations to be made.
Taddy play nine games in the space of just three weeks and as it stands, they stand two points behind leaders Handsworth Parramore with a game in hand.
