Yes, everyone knows about his Blockbusting striking effects but few consider Andy’s Biography which is quite interesting. Now without further adieu, let’s Begin.
Andrew Thomas Carroll was born on the 6th day of January 1989 in Gateshead, Tyne and Wear, United Kingdom. The Capricorn footballer was born to his mother, Susan Simmonds and father, Thomas Carroll (A Machinist by profession). During his early years, he went to Brighton Avenue Primary School and Joseph Swan School. Carroll “lived for football” even as a schoolboy.
Since boyhood, he has been a season ticket holder for his beloved Newcastle United. This team he had cheered right from the moment he first thought of football. He became a ball boy at the club then rose up through the junior to senior ball boy ranks. Andy Carroll in his choldhood years had reputations for behaving badly.
Billi Mucklow is a reality TV star who engaged to Carroll in November 2014. She is a year older than Andy.
Billi Mucklow rose to fame when she joined the popular Essex reality TV show in its third series, which aired in 2011.
She quit the ITV programme in its eighth season, in 2013, after just two years in front of the camera. This has made her to focus fully in the WAG lifestyle.
Their son, Arlo, was born in June 2015. ‘Arlo’ was dubbed the second hottest celebrity name for boys in 2011 by NameBerry. Billi Mucklow once shared some adorable photos of her six-month-old, Arlo.
On the month of November 2017, Billi Mucklow gave birth to her second child with Andy Carroll. Both partners named him Wolf Nine Carroll. What a strange and unusual name.
Asides Arol and Wolf Nine, Andy has two other children, Emilie Rose and Lucas, from a previous relationship.
Andy once dated Stacey Miller and between both former lovers is the history of a brutal assault. On 18 October 2010, Carroll was charged with assault in an incident with his ex-girlfriend who at the end of their fight suffered head injuries.
Upon his arrest, Andy claimed it was in self-defence. The charges were later dropped due to lack of evidence. Carroll was granted bail on the condition that he resided with then Newcastle captain Kevin Nolan until the case resumed in January. Two days following his bail, Carroll’s car was set on fire while parked on Nolan’s driveway, with the club captain’s garage door being lighted too. This was the beginning of him fearing to know that gangs were after him.
In November 2016, Carroll was approached by two men on motorcycles while driving near his home in Brentwood, Essex. Armed with a handgun, they attempted to steal his £22,000 watch but failed. Carroll was then chased in his car for about 20 minutes as he drove back to West Ham’s training ground in Rush Green to get help from security staff.
Justice finally came. In September 2017, one of the suspect, a 22-year-old Jack O’Brien was found guilty of the attempted robbery. He was sentenced to six years in prison for the offence.
On 14 September 2008, he was arrested by police in Newcastle, and later accepted a police caution. Again on 7 December 2009, he was arrested in the aftermath of a nightclub fight, again in Newcastle, accused of smashing a glass in a man’s face. He was charged with assault and in October 2010 he pleaded guilty to common assault and was fined £1,000. He was also ordered to pay £2,500 compensation.
While on international duty with the England U-19s, Carroll and teammates Scott Sinclair and Ryan Bertrand were sent home from the squad after breaking a curfew on 14 October 2007 during preparation for a match against Romania U-19s.
In March 2010, Carroll was allegedly involved in an altercation with teammate Steven Taylor during training that left Taylor with a broken jaw. Carroll reportedly suffered a broken hand in the incident, and shortly afterwards he was photographed at a pop concert with bandages to both hands. Then Newcastle manager Chris Hughton, club representatives and both players declined to comment any further on the incident and no charges were pressed.
Carroll was once known to have an excessive drinking habit. Following England’s 1–1 draw with Ghana on 29 March 2011, England manager Fabio Capello told Carroll to curtail his drinking habits. Liverpool manager Kenny Dalglish responded by saying, “Well he’s never bought me a drink. I’ve been with him at Boyzone concerts and he’s still never bought me a drink!”
In an interview in April 2012, Carroll admitted that he had gained a reputation for drinking and socialising during his time at Newcastle, but that since joining Liverpool in January 2011 he had “settled down” and changed his lifestyle.
His proud dad, Thomas Carroll, a fitter and turner, and mum, Susan Simmonds have supported their son’s footballing ambitions right from his childhood days. However, they still made sure Andy got good grades in his GCSEs. Before his son’s football investments paid off, Thomas Carroll operated a middle-class family background. Thomas has spent decades manufacturing metal components and assembles them to construct industrial machinery, machine components and tools.
Carroll started his youth football career with Newcastle United’s. Showing promise on the pitch from an early age. He signed his first professional contract with the club in July 2006 at the age of 17. This was before spending a brief period on loan with Preston North End. In 2007, he was the recipient of the Wor Jackie Milburn Trophy which made him be called –“The rising star of North-East football”, by Newcastle players. That same year, Italian legendary goalkeeper, Gianluigi Buffon labelled him to ‘have a big future’.
Unfortunately, Carroll’s £35 million sale to Liverpool to replace Fernando Torres didn’t work as planned. While in Liverpool, he headed down the same road to ruin. Till date, Andy Carroll still blames Newcastle for killing his Alan Shearer’s dream claiming the club forced him out. West Ham became the next destination after his Liverpool woes. The rest, as they say, is now history.
