Stephen Carr signed with Spurs in the summer of 1993 as a 16 year old boy and surprisingly made his first team debut in December 1993, in an away match against Ipswich. After two games with the first team the full back returned to the youth set up.
Gerry Francis installed Carr as first choice right back in September 1996, where he went on to impress with his energetic running up and down the flank, giving 100% for the team. The Irishman helped Spurs to a clean sheet in the Worthington Cup Final in 1999, securing a 1-0 victory over Leicester City. The following autumn, Carr scored one of the most memorable goals at the Lane, driving the ball from 30 yards into Treble winners, Manchester United’s net.
1999 continued to be a successful year for Stephen, receiving his first international call up, and going on to represent his country 44 times in 8 years.
