Aaron McCarey was a highly regarded goalkeeper with Monaghan United before being spotted by Wolves and joining the club in January, 2010.


Aaron had actually agreed to join Wolves the previous September, but the deal couldn't be ratified until the transfer window re-opened.


Nevertheless, he arrived in November, 2009, to start training with the club and settle in to his new surroundings, eventually making his debut in a reserve game at Chelsea.


The keeper, who has turned out for Republic of Ireland Under-19s, made several appearances from the bench for the first team in the pre-season friendlies prior to the 2010/11 season.


During the campaign he enjoyed a successful loan spell with AFC Telford, in amongst some impressive performances for Wolves reserves.


And he also helped the Republic of Ireland Under-19 team qualify for the summer's European Championships in Romania, taking place in July.


Prior to that, McCarey, who later went on to represent the Irish Under-21s, turned out for Wolves in a 3-2 friendly win at his former club Monaghan.

Two loan spells with Walsall during the 2012/13 season provided McCarey with his first taste of senior football, while his Wolves debut came - ironically in a penalty shootout success against the Saddlers - in the Johnstone Paint's Trophy in September, 2013.

He then enjoyed another loan spell with York City before going on to make his first league appearances for Wolves, keeping three clean sheets in a five-game run in the team.
