Canice has spent the first half of the season on loan in Cumbria, playing 16 times for United this season. The midfielder netted once at Brunton Park with the goal coming in the Trophy against Blackpool back in October.

The Republic of Ireland youth international will now make a permanent move to the Lamex Stadium and join up with a Stevenage side led by experienced manager Graham Westley.

The 21-year-old came through the ranks with Oxford United before joining The Bees in 2018. He went on to play 17 times for Brentford B and also had a loan spell with Swindon Town before he joined Carlisle in August last year for his temporary stint.

Discussing Canice’s move, Brentford B Head Coach Neil MacFarlane said: “With all the B Team players I think it’s important that we try to find a career for them, and Canice will be moving away from Carlisle where he’s been on loan and he’s found a permanent move in Stevenage and we wish him all the very best.

“He’s played a number of games for Carlisle at the start of the season and he’ll be hoping to play even more regularly at Stevenage.”

Everyone at Brentford Football Club would like to wish Canice well as he makes the next step in his career.
