Starting with Spennymoor and Ferryhill Athletic, Carr had signed for Arsenal on a railway platform in January 1934 as he waited for a train to Norwich. He returned to Spennymoor on a free transfer in May 1935 and Leeds snapped him up four months later. A West Ham United representative was rushing north, hoping to sign him, when Leeds Manager Billy Hampson arranged to meet the Spennymoor player at Darlington, where the deal was completed. It proved another unsuccessful move and he transferred to York City in January 1938. He also failed to settle there and at the end of the season, after scoring twice in his only two League games, he returned to Spennymoor yet again.
