Scottish winger Jimmy Carr joined Watford as an amateur in February 1913, turning professional in August, having made his Southern League debut in March against Reading. After 18 appearances he was released and joined West Ham United in May 1914. He played 9 games, scoring once, for West Ham in the final season before World War One, and on resumption he’d joined Reading, with whom he’d guested in wartime football. In 4 seasons at Reading he scored 9 goals in 155 games playing 36 games in their inaugural Football League season. He then joined Southampton in June 1923 and stayed 3 seasons at The Dell scoring 10 goals in 96 appearances, before a move to Swansea Town in May 1926. However after a single goal in only 7 games he joined non league Southall, where he was prevented from playing as an amateur being an ex professional, then returned to the professional ranks in October 1927 with a brief game-less spell at Queens Park Rangers, before retiring from the professional game.
