Carlin on McCarthy: "Kieran will be a great addition to our goalkeeping position. His experience at Holy Cross will help him be ready to immediately compete for the starting spot. We have known Kieran for a while as his brother Kyle was a 3 year captain and currently our assistant coach so we know he will be a great fit to our family.
