Biographical Text

On signing for Exeter City for the start of the 1920-21 season, Carrick was described as a ‘Lancashire lad of promise. – the big centre-half’s future is bright but he realizes he has plenty yet to learn’.

It was Carrick’s first season in senior football, for at the age of 23, he had previously played for Blackburn Wanderers of the Leigh and District League.

In November 1915 he moved to Plank Lane and played regularly for them.

His debut for Exeter City was in the club’s first ever game in the Football League against Brentford at St James’ Park.

Carrick was to only miss one league match all season, but at the end of it, he was surprisingly on the move, as he signed for Oldham Athletic.

Carrick played for a number of other clubs after that, joining Stockport County in 1923, Barrow (1924), Bradford Park Avenue (1926), Accrington Stanley (1927), Torquay United (1928), then back to Accrington Stanley in 1929, before ending his career with Burton Town and then Stalybridge Celtic.
