Cherries: Arter aiming to improve during Cumbrian loan spell

05 March 2011 07:00
HARRY Arter is aiming to rediscover his match sharpness after agreeing to join third tier rivals Carlisle United on loan.[LNB] The Cherries playmaker has seen his first team opportunities limited following his summer switch from non-league Woking.[LNB] Since starring in pre-season, Arter has been restricted to just 15 appearances, nine of those as a substitute, with his midfield colleagues in fine form.[LNB] In a bid to get valuable game-time, the former Charlton man has signed an initial one-month deal with Carlisle and could do Cherries a favour when the Cumbrians visit league leaders Brighton this afternoon.[LNB] Arter told the Echo: I was really pleased that a League One opportunity came up.[LNB] Carlisle are a good passing team with a lot of young players and I think I will fit it well there. Hopefully, it will be a success.[LNB] It's not the club's fault but since the middle of December I have only played three reserve games.[LNB] For any professional footballer, that is not enough. I rely on being sharp and being at my best and, if I'm not, then I'm not really that much use to anyone.[LNB] I'm hoping to go up to Carlisle and find that match sharpness I feel I'm lacking a little bit at the moment.[LNB] Cherries manager Lee Bradbury told the club's official website: Harry is definitely part of my long-term plans, but he is going out on loan because he can't break into the team.[LNB] That shows the strength in depth we have got.[LNB] We want to keep everyone happy and we felt this was a good move for him. He can come back a refreshed player and reignited.[LNB]
