Jimmy Carter

Hammersmith’s own Jimmy Carter was on the books for London clubs Crystal Palace and QPR in his early days, but his two spells at Millwall is where he is most revered.

 

Jimmy was part of the Millwall side that gained promotion to the top flight for the first time in their 100-year history in 1987-88, and lined up alongside Teddy Sheringham and Tony Cascarino.

 

Since retiring in 1999, Jimmy has immersed himself in the world of property development, and became a member of Millwall’s commercial sales team in 2015.

 

The first British Asian to play in the Premier League, Jimmy also turned out in the red of Arsenal and Liverpool during his 16-year footballing career as well as Oxford United and Portsmouth.
