639 Tim Hotte

Biography

Attacking wideman Tim Hotte joined City in September 1987 to add pace to Brian Horton’s Division Two squad. However Hotte did not make his first team debut, against his former side Huddersfield Town, until 11 days after Horton’s dismissal by owner Don Robinson, with Tom Wilson and Dennis Booth temporarily in charge. Hotte made only one appearance during Eddie Gray’s tenure in 1988/89, immediately after returning from a loan spell at York City.

Born in Bradford, Hotte had a remarkable journeyman career. He began at the exalted heights of Arsenal as a teenage apprentice but returned north to Huddersfield Town at 18. By 21 Tim had left the Terriers and for many years he hovered around the Yorkshire non-league scene, occasionally enjoying short spells at league clubs. In the mid-1990s he had a spell as player-manager at North Ferriby United, who he piloted to the FA Vase Final in May 1997, and later managed Hall Road Rangers.

After football Hotte worked as a manager for a local double glazing and door fitters, alongside another ex-Tiger Peter Skipper.
