João Miguel Martins Pais De Carlos (born 2 April 1989) is a semi-professional Portuguese footballer who plays as a winger for Isthmian League North Division club Grays Athletic.

Football career[edit]

Carlos played non-League football for Clapton and Brentwood Town, before signing for Aveley in 2008.[1][2] He signed for Dagenham & Redbridge on non-contract terms at the start of November 2009.[3] Carlos made his debut for Dagenham & Redbridge on 20 February 2010, in the 3–1 away defeat to Rochdale, replacing Jon Nurse as a substitute in the 75th minute.[4]

In August 2010, Carlos re-signed for Isthmian League Division One North club Brentwood Town alongside Ryan Doyle,[5] before moving to Conference South side Thurrock in October 2010.[6] He went on to sign for Isthmian League Division One North club Grays Athletic in June 2011.[7] At the end of the 2011–12 season, Carlos was voted as Club Player of the Year, voted for by club officials.[8]

Carlos signed for National League South club Concord Rangers on 22 March 2016 on dual registration terms from Grays Athletic.[9][10] He went on to sign for the club on a permanent basis the following season, before returning to Grays Athletic on 11 December 2016 alongside Luke Wilson.[11]

Playing style[edit]

John Still described Carlos as "a tricky winger who likes to run at people and wants to beat them".[1]
