A strong striker, Carl had to contend himself with life in the lower divisions where he boasted a fine scoring ratio, not far short of one goal for every two games.
His most prolific season came when he was with his third club, Rotherham United, when he netted 27 league and cup goals in 1971-72, including four in a 4-0 win against Swansea City and a hat-trick in the FA Cup.
The following season he had the unusual experience of starting as a striker against Bournemouth at Millmoor, giving his team the lead but when his keeper was injured he took over the jersey. However, with Rotherham 3-1 down he came back out again to score another goal although he couldn't prevent a 7-2 defeat.
