Jewell delight at Carroll call

19 Mar 2008 - 10:37:11

Derby County boss Paul Jewell believes Roy Carroll's international recall is just rewards for his form since joining the Rams.

The 30-year-old goalkeeper has been included in the Northern Ireland squad for this month's friendly with Georgia to bring to an end an 18-month spell in the international wilderness.

Carroll has caught international manager Nigel Worthington's eye during his six appearances for the Pride Park club following his January arrival from Rangers.

The former Wigan Athletic and Manchester United keeper's career had stalled since losing his first-team place at West Ham United midway through last season.

Carroll has won 19 international caps, after the former Under-21s keeper made his full debut in 1997.

"I think it is recognition for Roy getting back playing football and playing exceptionally well," Jewell told the club's official website.

"Hopefully he can continue to play well for us and get in the Irish team because I think he is a top-class goalkeeper."
