Scott Carson

Scott Carson (born September 3, 1985 in Whitehaven, Cumbria) is an English football goalkeeper, currently playing for Liverpool.

Carson joined Leeds United's Academy in July 2002 after being spotted by former Leeds defender Peter Hampton playing for non-league Workington Reds in an FA Youth Cup tie. He was called up for his first England Under-21 International in October 2003, despite having only just turned 18 and having not at the time played for Leeds' first team.

In January 2005, Carson transferred from Leeds United to Liverpool for a fee of £1 million, in spite of competing interest from Chelsea. Carson signed a four and a half year deal. He made his first team debut aged 19 as starting goalkeeper in the March 5, 2005 defeat to Newcastle United, and his UEFA Champions League debut in the April 4, 2005 victory over Juventus.

In May 2005, Carson was named in the 22-man England squad to tour to the USA and Columbia.
