Tony Carr: MBE

Hammers academy chief Tony Carr was awarded an MBE yesterday for services to football.
The club chairman, David Gold, commented: "I can't tell you how thrilled I am. It is so rare that people working quietly in the background get honoured in football. Here is a proper gentleman of football who has done an amazing job over nearly 40 years and rightly he has been honoured. It is richly deserved. The mere fact that we could win the World Cup with a third of the squad having come through the Academy under him says everything about the work he has done for football in this country."
