Club career[edit]

Oxford United[edit]

Adept as a central defender, full back or a midfielder, Carroll came through the youth system at hometown club Oxford United and began a scholarship in July 2015.[4] His progression was such that he was offered a ​2 12-year professional contract in August 2015 and signed it on 5 February 2016.[5][6] Carroll made his debut for the club as a substitute for Alex MacDonald after 82 minutes of a 2–0 Football League Trophy Southern Area quarter-final victory over Dagenham & Redbridge on 11 November 2015.[7] He did not feature in the remainder of Oxford's run to the 2016 Football League Trophy Final or in the club's promotion to League One,[8] but was a part of the U18 team which finished the season as Football League Youth Alliance Merit League 2 champions.[9] Carroll made seven appearances during the 2016–17 season and was named as the Us' Young Player of the Year.[10][11] He was an unused substitute during the 2–1 2017 EFL Trophy Final defeat to Coventry City at Wembley Stadium.[12] Carroll signed a new three-year contract with the club in May 2017.[13]

Carroll made something of a breakthrough during the 2017–18 season, making 17 appearances and scoring what would be his only goal for the club,[14] a header in a 3–2 defeat to Bradford City on 30 December 2017.[15][16] He departed the Us on 9 August 2018,[17] having made 25 appearances and scored one goal during ​2 12 seasons as a professional at the Kassam Stadium.[16]

Brentford[edit]

On 9 August 2018, Carroll signed a two-year B team contract at Championship club Brentford for an undisclosed fee, with the option of a further year.[18] He featured regularly for the B team and was an unused substitute on one occasion for the first team before departing Griffin Park on loan for the remainder of the 2018–19 season in January 2019.[19] Despite being a member of the first team's Austrian training camp during the 2019–20 pre-season,[20] Carroll departed on a season-long loan in August 2019.[21] The loan was ended on the final day of the January 2020 transfer window and he then transferred out of the club.[22]

Swindon Town (loan)[edit]

On 4 January 2019, Carroll joined League Two club Swindon Town on loan until the end of the 2018–19 season.[19] Deployed predominantly as a defensive midfielder,[23] he made 17 appearances and scored one goal during his spell.[24]

Stevenage[edit]

On 31 January 2020, Carroll transferred to League Two club Stevenage on a contract running until the end of the 2019–20 season.[28]
