Goalkeeper Carl Rushworth has joined League One Lincoln City on loan for the 2022/23 season.

The 20-year-old spent the last campaign on loan with Walsall, where he made 43 appearances, keeping 11 clean sheets.

First team goalkeeping coach Ben Roberts said, “Carl had an excellent loan spell with Walsall last season, culminating in him winning their Player of the Season award and being a regular member of the England under 21 squad - as a result there was a lot of interest from clubs this summer.

“Lincoln represents a new challenge in a team that has a history of developing loan goalkeepers. It is a step up in terms of division in the EFL, and Carl will relish that. We wish him well for the season ahead and will be watching closely and monitoring his progress and development.”

Carl impressed during his time with the Saddlers, winning the Players' Player and Supporters' Young Player of the Season.

He signed a new contract with us in January 2022, that runs until June 2025.
