Huddersfield Town hope Daniel Carr will join long list of Dulwich Hamlet graduates

ALAN PARDEW, Ian Wright, Peter Crouch – they’ve all worn the distinctive pink and blue colours of Dulwich Hamlet.

ALAN PARDEW, Ian Wright, Peter Crouch – they’ve all worn the distinctive pink and blue colours of Dulwich Hamlet.

So too have Birmingham’s Marlon King, Norwich’s Simeon Jackson and Charlton’s Leon Cort.

The non-league club from South-East London have produced plenty of future top players down the years, and Town are hoping that’s the case with Daniel Carr.

The 18-year-old striker clinched a two-year contract at the John Smith’s Stadium this week with Town having the option of a further 12 months.

Carr has been tracked by a string of top clubs, including Chelsea, Tottenham and Liverpool, who recently had him on trial.

But he has plumped for Town, who have paid the Ryman (Isthmian) League outfit a small undisclosed fee.

Former Reading academy player Carr will complete the campaign with promotion-chasing Dulwich in a league which is six levels below the Championship on the football pyramid.

He’ll be aiming to add to his 24 goals, starting in today’s home game against Walton Casuals at Champion Hill.

Carr will join Town in pre-season and could make a quick return to Dulwich, where the Under 21s will play a friendly as part of the deal.
