FULL NAME :  THOMAS JAMES CARROLL

Height : -  1.77m  (5' 9")

Weight : -  - kgs    (st lbs)

 
A talented young midfielder, Tom Carroll was highlighted by Spurs as a player who could go far.

Attended Leavesden Green JMI School and Parmiters School close to his Watford home, Tom was an outstanding sportsman and was captain of the school cricket team, which won district and county honours.  On the football front, the midfielder went to to play for Hertfordshire at county level and as a Under-16, played for Tottenham in the successful Leganano Tournament win in Italy.

Arrived at Tottenham in 2008 to go full time into the Academy side.  In 2009-10, Carroll weighed in with 10 goals in 21 Academy league appearances (16 in the starting line-up), enough to impress the club and gain him his first professional contract in the summer of 2010.

Had his first taste of league action when he went on loan to Leyton Orient in January 2011 and played in both games against Arsenal in the FA Cup. The following January, Tom went on loan to Derby County and then in September 2013, he joined QPR on loan for the season, to be managed by Harry Redknapp once more.  It was felt among the Rangers fans that he was skilful, but a little light-weight, so perhaps it was not a surprise that Carroll went out on loan again, this time to Swansea City of the Premier League in the summer of 2014.  Hit by injury and not a regular starter, it was surprising when Tom was include din the end of season tour to Malaysia and Australia and played a major part in the games there.  Reaching an age when he has to play or move on, the 2015-16 season will be a big one for the talented midfielder.

Despite his many loan clubs, he has been a regular in the England UNder-21 set-up and in 2015 he was the captain of the team.

What they said about Tom Carroll
John McDermott (Academy Director) ...  19.06.2011 (The Observer)

"Tom Carroll, an outstanding prospect, trains regularly with our first team and is on loan at Leyton Orient [but] he couldn't cope physically in matches with his own age group as he was a late developer and [had a] summer birthday. But he had outstanding perception, technique and aerobic capacity."
