Biography

Giant goalkeeper Capewell stood at six foot three, but when he joined the Tigers in 1954 injuries were getting the better of him. He stayed at Boothferry Park for one season and made only one senior appearance.

Born in Sheffield, Capewell started his career at non-League Kiveton Park but soon signed for Sheffield Wednesday. He played half a season in the Wednesday first team during his early 20s, and stuck around for a couple more years until his move to Hull.

In 1955 Capewell joined King’s Lynn, where he ended his career. He died in 2016.
