517 David Lill

Biography

Striker David Lill grew up in the Holderness coastal village of Aldborough and was captured by City’s apprenticeship scheme as a 16 year old, turning professional at 18 in 1965. Over seven seasons he made just 18 first team appearances, such was the consistency and longevity of the strikers that were selected ahead of him – Messrs Ken Wagstaff and Chris Chilton.

Lill joined Rotherham United in October 1969 and was a more regular starter for two seasons. He switched League new-boys Cambridge United in 1971 and in five seasons he played over 170 times and scored 22 league goals. He then saw out his playing career at King’s Lynn FC.
