Biography

Carver started out in football as a player, he was a centre half and had a rugged style of playing. During the 1933-34 season, he made one appearance for Blackburn Rovers[2] who finished 8th that year in the old Football League First Division.

He moved further up North to play for Newcastle United, making his debut against Barnsley in August 1936; with Carver playing the Toon's highest finish was 4th in the old Football League Second Division (second tier of the league). After playing 70 times in the league and 6 in the FA Cup for Newcastle United, Carver's playing career was cut short by the Second World War. During the war years he worked as a policeman.

Coaching

In the years following World War II football training still commonly took place without a football, aiming at running alone. It was even suggested that allowing players to kick a ball between matches would quench their thirst for the game. Carver was at the forefront of innovation in improving the skills, athleticism and theoretical knowledge of players and using the ball during training.

Honours

Honours achieved as a manager.
