Brodie Carrington will look to revive his burgeoning career after a wretched few years with a short-term loan spell at Baldock Town.

The Welwyn Garden City striker burst onto the scene three years ago in a huge fanfare, the then 17-year-old becoming the first WGC player to have scored three hat-tricks in a week - one each for the Citizens' first-team, reserve side and youth squad.

It brought him to the attention of a number of clubs including League Two pair Stevenage and Colchester United, both of whom invited him to train with them.

He also signed a contract at Welwyn but a series of long-standing injuries not only blighted his form but threatened his career as a whole.

He is now back in training and scored in City's pre-season friendly with Sawbridgeworth Town and manager Max Mitchell has agreed to let the now 20-year-old to go to the SSML Premier Division Reds for three months.

The boss said: "When I first became manager I knew of Brodie’s abilities and the potential he had shown when first with the club.

"He signed a contract at a premature age for this level when he should really have been focussing on improving and enjoying his football.
