He had loan spells with Spalding United and Altrincham then made his sole first-team appearance for the Posh in December 2010.
In June 2011 Carl moved north to sign for Stockport County and from there switched to Corby Town before arriving at Boston in May 2013.

In 2016 Piergianni made the decision to leave Boston, moving to Australia where he turned out for South Melbourne FC, who play at the country’s second level of football.
A tough, uncompromising defender with a real eye for goal, Piergianni’s signing is another huge sign of intent from the club who are building a formidable squad for season 2017/18.
