  • Player profile

    The Preston-born winger started out at Blackburn Rovers but it was with Brian Clough's Nottingham Forest where he really caught the eye out with stand-out performances at the City Ground.

    A reserve player at Blackburn, Clough saw his potential and was a key attacker for Forest during Clough's days in the mid-late 1980s. His form saw him earn nine England U21 caps and he was twice involved in victorious Forest teams at Wembley.

    Carr's career was derailed by inconsistency, however, and loan spells at Sheffield Wednesday and West Ham United were followed by permanent moves to Newcastle United and Sheffield United before he arrived at Leicester. Carr struggled to recapture his form from his Forest days, but he still did enough to turn a loan deal at Filbert Street into a permanent move, Brian Little parting with £100,000 for his services.

    Carr only made 12 Premier League starts for City between September 1994-February 1995, where he rejoined former boss Little at Aston Villa. Spells at Reggiana, Bolton Wanderers and West Brom followed before he finished his professional career with Pittsburgh.
