Born in West Ham, London, Carter played for West Ham Boys, then his works team, Green & Silley Weir of the London Munitions League, before moving to West Ham United for the club's first season of League football in 1919-20.
Often used as understudy to Syd Bishop, George Kay or Jack Tresadern, Carter managed 136 League appearances for the Irons. His only goal came in a 2-1 loss against Leeds United on 29 January 1921. He also played 19 FA Cup games for the club.
Carter never fully recovered from a knee injury sustained during a game against Blackburn Rovers on 14 February 1927. After a cartilage operation, he signed on for the following season but did not play. He had a brief stint at Fulham in 1928 and later played for Grays Thurrock
