Raich Carter won every major honour in football with his hometown club Sunderland by the time he was 24.

After the war he joined Derby County, winning the FA Cup in 1946 before joining Hull City as player manager in 1948, helping them to the Division Three (North) title. 

In 1956 he guided Leeds United back into the first division but he was sacked in May 1958. 

After a spell with Mansfield Town he joined Boro. But his spell on Teesside was the least successful of his career and he left Boro on the brink of relegation to Division Three for the first time in their history.

Harold Shepherdson took over first team affairs. 

Carter died in Willerby, near Hull, in 1994, aged 80.
