Conor Carty’s successful loan spell at St Patrick's Athletic has come to an end.

And the Dunlavin born striker now returns to League One club Bolton Wanderers.

Carty arrived in Inchicore in February on loan and went on to make 41 appearances for the club, scoring seven goals along the way.

One of his most important strikes was in the FAI Cup semi-final against Cork City, an 82nd minute goal that confirmed their win over City. 

That set them on their way to their historic fifth FAI Cup win over Bohemians in early November.

21-year-old Carty made the starting eleven in that final and played 75 minutes before being replaced by Thomas Lonergan.

Carty was with Wolves from 2017 to 2022 and moved to Bolton Wanderers in June 2022.

He made one substitute appearance for Wanderers in an EFL Trophy game against Tranmere Rovers but was subsequently sent out on loan to Oldham Athletic and Gateshead before returning to the League of Ireland earlier this year.

Carty returns to a Bolton side who are currently sitting at the top of the table in League One. 

They are two points ahead of Portsmouth after recording a stunning 7-0 home win over Exeter City at their Toughsheet Community Stadium on Saturday.

Meanwhile, goalkeeper Danny Rogers has signed a new contract for the club following the expiration of his last contract in November 2023.

Earlier in his career Rogers was on the books of Aberdeen in the SPL. 

But he only made three appearances for them before being sent out on loan to other Scottish clubs over a six-year period.

He later signed for Kilmarnock and then Oldham Athletic but was released by the League Two side at the end of the 2021/22 season following their relegation.

The goalkeeper joined the Saints in August 2022 to replace the outgoing Joseph Anang and he went on to make 10 appearances to help Tim Clancy’s side to a fourth- place finish and qualification for Europe.

But he suffered a serious injury during a pre-match warm up against Shelbourne in February this year.

And ended up missing 3 months while recuperating but returned to action later in the year and was on the bench for their FAI Cup win.
