On Cloud Seven – Hull City’s players

A website dedicated to the footballers who have played a senior competitive football match for Hull City, since 1904…

…and the “nearly men” who sat on the Hull City bench one or more times but never made a senior appearance…

…plus a list of all the grounds where Hull City has played, designed to satisfy even the most ardent groundhoppers and groundtickers…

…and interactive features so that you can add your own memories and knowledge about your City heroes.  If you have additional information about a player – he’s a family member, you have an interesting anecdote, he once fixed your boiler, etc – then please leave details in the comments box on that player’s page.

@oncloudseven1 Good stuff. Recognised the face from team pix but not the name. The hard yards of research done too, bringing new info into the public domain, rather than recycling same old stuff as so many do. Bravo.

🆕 New addition
James Briggs was a forward who spent two seasons at City in the 1910s, making only two first appearances. He grew up in a County Durham coal mining village and returned to that area and career when he left City.

Les Dodds was a Geordie-born outside left signed from Grimsby Town in March 1934, who stuck around Anlaby Road for a year before heading off to Torquay, Wellington and London. Journeyman!
