139 Bob Scorer

Biography

Centre half Bob Scorer signed for the Tigers in April 1922 from North Eastern League side Felling Colliery and was quickly thrown into the first team for the last two fixtures of the 1921/22 season by manager Percy Lewis. Scorer started three more games in the first half of the 1922/23 season but when Bill McCracken took over as manager in February 1923 he preferred other centre half choices. Scorer was retained by City at the start of the 1923/24 season before leaving in November 1923.

Scorer joined Brighton & Hove Albion in November 1923 and in two seasons he made 37 starts for the Seagulls. He spent most of the 1925/26 season at Wigan Borough where he added a further 21 appearances, switching to Crewe Alexandra in April 1926. He spent the 1927/28 season at Shrewsbury Town before his career came to a close. He lived in the Crewe area after his playing days ended, dying in the Cheshire town in June 1971.
