Christopher Carrick played his early football in Teesside. After losing top goalscorers Charlie Satterthwaite and William Kirby in 1904, Syd King signed several forwards, including Carrick, Charlie Simmons, Jack Fletcher, to partner Billy Bridgeman up front for West Ham. Carrick was described by one journalist as "a parcel of strength and muscle... a sturdy little winger who is quick off the mark and has the rare gift of taking chances". By the end of the season West Ham had scored 48 goals in 34 league games. Carrick got six of these goals, which was a good return as he only played in 18 games. This included a hat-trick in a game against Luton. At the end of the season Carrick was transferred to Spurs. In March, 1906, Carrick was involved in an off the pitch incident that resulted in his being suspended. Carrick never played for Spurs again. He moved to Reading and later had spells at Bradford City and Glentoran. Carrick retired to Middlesbrough where he died, aged 44, in 1927.
