William Carr - 1 Cap (0 Goals)

  • Full Name: William Henry Carr
  • Born: 14th November 1848, Sheffield
  • Died: 22nd February 1924, Sheffield aged 75
  • England Career: 1875
  • Positions whilst with England: Goalkeeper
  • Clubs (and caps) whilst with England: Owlerton Sheffield (1)
  • FA Legacy Number: 28
  • Alcock's 1874 Annual attests that Carr 'has again and again vindicated his right to the first place among custodians of the goal.' He played for many Sheffield clubs including Wednesday, Walkley and Owlerton, of the latter he was secretary when called up. He arrived late for his only international appearance which has led to speculation that that was the reason for not being selected again.
