Excited Charlie Carter can’t wait to get started at Chesterfield and said he was motivated by career prospects rather than money when he opted to switch to the National League newcomers.
The 21-year-old attacking midfielder admits it was a hard decision to leave Woking but being wanted by such a big club and developing his career further under Martin Allen was too good an opportunity to miss and was the main driver in him leaving Surrey.
Top scoring with 12 goals last season under Anthony Limbrick, Carter blossomed in his second full season with the Cards but he is keen to step out of his comfort zone, not just as a footballer, but as part of his growing up.
“I’ve been made no promises because no manager can do that but I’ve been told there is the opportunity to play week in, week out and that was the key thing for me,” he said.
“I had two offers from Football League clubs but I didn’t want to go to them and sit on the bench. I need to be playing and to progress my career.
