  • Player profile

    The powerful forward played 179 league games for City between 1924-1932 and scored 24 goals - adding one in 13 FA Cup appearances during his time with the Foxes. He netted in his debut against Coventry City at home in February 1924.

    His finest moment came in 1925, when he scored the goal against Bradford City that guaranteed promotion for Leicester. However, after a good start to his City career he suffered a broken leg the next season - an injury which saw several spectators reportedly fainting as a result.

    Carr returned from that set-back with a hat-trick against Leeds United, the side he'd broken his leg against, and he was a key cog in City's best-ever First Division campaign at the time, seeing them twice miss out on the title.

    His appearances for City became fewer and farther between and he eventually went on to play for Stockport County and Nuneaton Town, the latter as player-manager.
