Description

St Helens, Lancashire born right back Samuel Cheetham began his football career with local St Helen’s club Thatto Heath immediately after the First World War One before he joined Second Division Hull City in the 1920 close season,and he made his Football Leaguedebut for them at Clapton Orient on Christmas Day 1920, scoring his only goal for The Tigers in a 2-2 draw at Stockport in February 1921. He was part of the team that dumped soon to be League Champions Burnley out of the FA Cup, winning 3-0 the same month before losing in a replay to Preston North End.

His 33 game spell at Anlaby Road brought him to the attention of First Division Bradford City who signed him in November 1921, however he made only 9 appearances in the top flight before they were relegated at the end of the season. Over six seasons at Valley Parade he never established himself in The Bantams’ first team as other than a fringe player. Despite that he managed 64 appearances scoring 12 goals, including 5 in 8 games during 1925-26 when playing 7 of those as a centre forward, indeed during his time at Valley Parade he scored a brace of goals on 4 different occasions. He moved to non league Colwyn Bay in the close season of 1927 after Bradford’s relegation from the Second Division, before joining Macclesfield in 1928, where he scored 7 goals in 46 appearances, finishing his career at Yeovil & Petters United, whom he joined in the summer of 1929.
