Carl Hoddle followed in his older brother's footsteps as a professional at Spurs, but failed to make it through to the first team, making a career in the lower leagues before dying at a young age.
A classy midfielder with the Hoddle gift for passing, Carl was slightly heavier built than Glenn and found it hard to live up to his brother's reputation. There was no doubt that the talent was there, but he was over-looked at Tottenham and after five years in the youth system, he moved on to Barnet, where he was signed by Barry Fry as an 18 year old, but quickly left for Leyton Orient.
Spent a couple of seasons at the Brisbane Road club, but was never a regular and returned to Barnet in 1991, where he did hold down a first team place for a while, making nearly 100 appearances in his four seasons at Underhill before finishing his playing days with Woking and Aylesbury United.
In May 1995, Carl was convicted of drink-driving.
Having been part-time and in and out of the game, Hoddle spent time in the used car business, as a postman and ran a pub (the Red Cow in Bishop's Stortford) before being called up by his brother to be a coach at Wolverhampton Wanderers in December 2004 and stayed until July 2006.
Carl Hoddle collapsed at home in Sawbridgeworth, Hertfordshire and died of a brain aneurysm on 2nd March 2008 at the age of 40. His funeral service took place at Parndon Wood Crematorium in Harlow, Essex, England.
