The 65-year-old was replaced as academy boss in 2014 by Terry Westley and has since been working for the club in an ambassadorial role.Carr, who nurtured further England internationals Michael Carrick, Joe Cole, Jermain Defoe and Glen Johnson, turned down the chance to continue in that role following the Hammers move to the Olympic Stadium. And he has complained that the club had handled his departure badly despite giving him a testimonial, from which he kept all the proceeds, in 2010.He told the Daily Mail: The way it was done with people from HR, who have been here hardly any time at all, was particularly disrespectful in my opinion. But thats the way of the world these days.A statement issued by West Ham on Wednesday said: We can confirm that Tony Carr has left the club with immediate effect after his two-year contract as club ambassador came to an end. Frank Lampard was just one of Tony Carrs academy stars that played for England Tony took on the role after departing his long-term position as academy director, with both the club and Tony wanting to ensure that he retained a full-time position and salary beyond his 65th birthday, before beginning to receive his pension.As a gesture of gratitude for the outstanding service Tony has given the club, the current owners of West Ham United granted him a testimonial match at the Boleyn Ground and Tony retained all profits from this game.Tony was offered new terms this summer to continue his ambassadorial role on a part-time basis, however, he declined the opportunity.Tony will forever be held in the highest regard by everyone at West Ham United for his outstanding service to the club and he will always be welcome at the new stadium, where his achievements are rightly remembered in the academy bar.

Italy was heading towards breaking its own duck with a fourth straight home victory over Scotland after lock Joshua Furnos first international try, which replacement flyhalf Luciano Orquera converted with less than 10 minutes remaining. But defeat left Italy winless through three rounds, while Scotland earned some redemption in rebounding from a 20-0 home loss to England, regarded as one of its worst displays ever. "Its all a big blur to be honest," Weir said. "We had a few chances to go for it. I was in the pocket and Cus (Chris Cusiter) gave me a lovely ball and the rest is history. "You just have to go back to basics, get your ball drop right, and I managed to execute it. Its a great feeling and I am delighted for the boys we have come away with the win. We can kick on from here now." With captain Sergio Parisse and prop Martin Castrogiovanni marking their record 104th caps for Italy, they were in the forefront in giving their side a deserved 13-3 lead at halftime. All of its points came from former Scotland Under-20 flyhalf Tommaso Allan, including his second international try. Scotland upped its intensity after the interval, and centre Alex Dunbar scored two tries with Weir converting the second. Captain Greg Laidlaw missed one kick but weighed in with two penalties. "The quality of the match was disappointing," Italy coach Jacques Brunel said. "It was the worst Italy Ive seen since Ive been here. We gifted Scotland the chance to win through our mistakes. "Were behind in regards to our ambitions. I want to understand why we were so bad. We have to react. Our defence was good up until a certain point. But then ... we didnt do our part, we can put on very different performances." Scotland conceded a third scrum penalty in the 12th minute and from that the Azzurri went on the attackk.

Scotlands indiscipline continued to grow, with the visitors conceding five penalties in the opening quarter -- and that was to increase to 10 by halftime. However, Laidlaw evened the score with a penalty kick in the 23rd. Scotland, which had one try in its last five matches in the Six Nations, had a great chance on the half hour when Weir broke in the Italian half but he cut inside instead of using Sean Lamont on his outside and slipped. Allan put Italy back in front with another kick, and added his converted try in the final minute of the half, going over from Furnos pass after Sergio Parisses charge off the back of the scrum. Rather than deflate Scotland, the late score spurred the visitors to new heights in the new half. They put Italy under sustained pressure. The breach finally came in the 54th when Weir jolted the ball from Italy scrumhalf Edoardo Gori. Scotland spread it quick, and Dunbar sliced through and sped into the right corner to score Scotlands first try of the championship. It took 12 more minutes to score its second. From a scrum on halfway, left wing Sean Lamont ran over Allan and Dunbar burst through. With Laidlaw off, Weir converted for Scotlands first lead at 18-13. Italy looked to have rescued the win after a big run by left wing Leonardo Sarto up the middle, finished by Orquera and Parisse sending Furno over in the right corner for his first try in 16 appearances. Italy had a two-point lead. But for the last few minutes, Scotlands forwards took control, busily working the phases, keeping the ball and making hard yards. With 19 seconds left, replacement scrumhalf Chris Cusiter fired the ball to Weir, who struck it sweet from 35 metres. He was already running back to his half in joy by the time the ball flew high inside the left post, the Stadio Olimpico stunned into silence.
