Graham Carr, father of comedian Alan, to be announced as Newcastle chief scout


By Sportsmail Reporter


Graham Carr, the father of TV comedian Alan Carr, will be announced as the new chief scout at Newcastle United this week.


Carr, 65, has been taken on by owner Mike Ashley to boost the club’s scouting network following the tarnished regime of previous director of football Dennis Wise.

It emerged at a tribunal which awarded ex-boss Kevin Keegan £2 million that Newcastle had signed an unknown Uruguayan as ‘a favour’ to two South American agents.


Carr’s last role was as part of Sven Goran Eriksson’s scouting team at Notts County.

Most of Alan Carr's stand up is based around how much his dad hated him, so he seems to have decent judgement.


That's like noticing Usain Bolt is pretty quick, though.
