Derek Carr : an apology and correction

It has come to the club’s attention that a message of condolence and a news article posted on the club website in August 2016 that Crook Town FA Amateur Cup winner Derek Carr had passed away was made in error and is incorrect.


Derek is still very much alive and enjoying life in Alnwick – Derek was part of the Crook Town team that won the FA Amateur Cup in 1959 by beating Barnet 3-2 at Wembley


The club are grateful to the Carr family for bringing this error to our attention and we’d like to sincerely apologise for any upset caused.
