Premiership striker Andy Carroll scored with his family by taking them
on a visit to Clacton Pier.

The 32-year-old was on the substitutes bench for Newcastle United in
their match against Liverpool at Anfield on Saturday and then enjoyed a day out
at the seaside attraction the next day.

Carroll, who is married to reality TV star Billi Mucklow from TOWIE, spent
a couple of hours on the rides with his family group.

The frontman started his career at Newcastle before a £35 million move
to Liverpool.

He then signed for West Ham, initially on loan and then permanently,
before returning to his boyhood club where he is currently helping them to avoid
relegation. He played nine times for England.

Carroll and his wife still live in Essex with their two sons, Arlo and
Wolf Nine.

Pier director Billy Ball said it had been another busy weekend for the
attraction, its second since reopening outdoors following the lockdown.

“There were plenty of families around enjoying themselves, including the
former England striker and his group who visited on Sunday,” he said.

“He seemed a really friendly guy and was happy to pose for photos and
sign autographs for football fans.”

The rest of the Pier – and its indoor facilities – are due to reopen on
May 17.
