Carlisle United sign former Bohemians forward Georgie Kelly from Rotherham United
Carlisle United have confirmed the signing of Irish forward Georgie Kelly from Rotherham United on a three-and-a-half-year deal.
27-year-old Kelly began his football career at Derry City before moving to UCD.
His journey continued at Dundalk in 2018 before going on loan to St Patrick’s Athletic in July 2020.
His major breakthrough came with Bohemians after signing in January 2021.
He scored 21 goals in 31 appearances, finishing the season as the league’s top goalscorer.
In January 2022, Kelly made the move to Rotherham United, marking his debut with a goal that helped secure the Millers' promotion to the Championship in a 2-0 victory over Gillingham.
During his time at the New York Stadium, he scored six goals across 51 appearances.
Carlisle manager Paul Simpson expressed his enthusiasm for the new signing.
"He's a player we've liked for the last 12 months," he said.
"He's struggled to get game time at Rotherham annod the opportunity came up to sign him on a permanent deal. I'm absolutely delighted we've been able to get him in."
