All of us here at Digital Sports Group are proud we've had the opportunity to work with The PFA to give the fans a fantastic and unique fan resource for Andy Carroll.
(PRWEB UK) 3 May 2013
Digital Sports Group today announced that The PFA Facebook fan page of Andy Carroll has broken the 25%daily growth barrier making it the fastest growing Andy Carroll page on Facebook. The Facebook page has become a thriving hub for the West Ham striker since it's launch and now boasts a vibrant and rapidly growing community of fans. The Facebook page along with Andy Carroll player profile on football.co.uk provide the only online location of the official PFA biography, lifetime stats, news and high resolution gallery.
Andy Carroll is a powerful young striker who signed for Liverpool in the January 2011 transfer window.
With a physical presence reminiscent of the traditional English centre forward he is effective in the air, while his tenacity and work rate have made him a fans’ favourite.
It was not until January 2009 that he scored his first senior goal for Newcastle, but by the start of 2009-10 he was a fixture in the line-up and his goals helped fire the Magpies back into the Premier League.
He continued this form in the first half of 2010-11, with 11 goals from 18 Premier League starts including a hat-trick in the 6-0 win over Aston Villa, and with Fernando Torres on his way out of Anfield, Andy was signed as a replacement during the transfer window.
Injury delayed his debut for the Reds, but a double in the 3-0 win over Manchester City emphasised his strengths and there were glimpses of a developing partnership up front with Luis Suarez.
Andy made his full international debut for England against France in November 2010 and scored his first goal the following March in the 1-1 draw with Ghana.
Andy joined West Ham United on loan for the 2012/13 season on the penultimate day of the 2012 summer transfer window.
Head of Operations at DSG, Matthew Tait had this to say “Andy Carroll really has no shortage of fans after his performances for West Ham this season and we can see that by the success of his PFA Facebook page.
“All of us here at Digital Sports Group are proud we've had the opportunity to work with The PFA to give the fans a fantastic and unique fan resource for Andy Carroll.”
DSG became the official digital partner of the Professional Footballers Association (PFA) earlier this year and have since launched a number of Player Profile fan pages on social media site Facebook as well as providing official player pages on their football news site football.co.uk.
