Western Football League

The Western Football League is a football league in South West England, covering Bristol, Devon, western Dorset, parts of Gloucestershire and Wiltshire. The league's current main sponsor is Toolstation, so it is known as the Toolstation League. Recent restructuring of the English football league system has placed the two divisions, known as the Premier Division and Division One at the ninth and tenth tiers overall, known as Step 5 and Step 6 of the National League System; the champion club may apply for promotion to a Step 4 league, which in practice will certainly be the Southern League Division One South and West. Below the Western League are four local leagues covering smaller areas, the Gloucestershire County League, the Somerset County League, the Dorset Premier League and the Wiltshire League; the South West Peninsula League Premier Division is a feeder to the Western League but due to having Step 6 status, it feeds directly into the Western League Premier Division. Premier Division: Division One: The league was formed in 1892 as the Bristol & District League, became the Western League in 1895.

Another Bristol & District League was formed, which remains active at a much lower level than the Western League. In the years before World War II, many teams played in both the Western Leagues. On four occasions, member clubs have lifted the FA Vase, Tiverton Town twice, Taunton Town once and most Truro City, who beat A. F. C. Totton in 2007 at the first final to be held at the new Wembley Stadium before a competition record crowd of 27,754. Truro City were the only one of the three to win the FA Vase while in Division One, while none are current members of the Western League, as all three have since progressed to the Southern League.

All categories comprised, Carriço earned 70 caps for Portugal, including 16 for the under-21s, he made his senior international debut in 2015. A product of Sporting CP's prolific youth academy, Carriço was born in Cascais and made his professional debut in 2007–08, splitting that season with S. C.

Paços de Ferreira and securing a starting place after the latter became available. For 2010–11, after longtime incumbent João Moutinho's departure to FC Porto, Carriço was chosen as new club captain by newly appointed coach Paulo Sérgio.

In the following campaign, under both Domingos Paciência and his successor Ricardo Sá Pinto, he was used exclusively as a defensive midfielder. On 31 December 2012, Sporting announced that Carriço had been sold to Premier League club Reading for a fee of £609,000, he signed an initial two-and-a-half-year contract, with the option of a further year after that. He made his debut on 12 January 2013, starting and playing 45 minutes in a 3–2 home win against West Bromwich Albion. Carriço only totalled 87 minutes of action – all in the league – and four bench appearances, as the English team suffered relegation after ranking 19th.

Benfica on penalties, he signed a permanent deal with Sevilla on 23 June 2014, his first match after, the UEFA Super Cup at Cardiff City Stadium, a 0–2 loss to compatriots Real Madrid.

On 20 February 2020, Carriço transferred to Chinese club Wuhan Zall FC. As a youth international, Carriço appeared at the 2007 UEFA European Under-19 Championship, where he was elected as one of the best players after scoring two goals in just three games; the following year, he progressed into the under-21s.
