Carter won the Vanarama National League Player of the Month for February before winning the in-house Player of the Month for March.

Oscar Rutherford joined the Elite Development Squad (U19s) for the 2022/23 season after leaving Plymouth Argyle but was awarded a first-team squad number after impressing in pre-season.

He made his professional debut as a substitute on the opening day of the 2022/23 season away to Wrexham.
