West Ham youth guru Carr awarded MBE

West Ham United academy guru Tony Carr has been awarded an MBE.

Carr has spent 30 years at Upton Park and oversaw the development of seven players - Frank Lampard, Joe Cole, Michael Carrick, Jermain Defoe, Glen Johnson, Rio Ferdinand and John Terry - in the current England squad.

Carr, 59, said: "This was so unexpected and my reaction was one of disbelief. I'm very proud and pleased."
