Description

Mexborough, Doncaster born inside and centre forward George Hunt played junior football for Regent Street Congregationals in 1928 and signed for Chesterfield in September 1929 making his Football League debut against Rochdale on New Year’s Day 1930, very quickly coming to the attention of Tottenham Hotspur after 9 goals in 14 games that season, signing for them in June 1930. His debut came in September 1930 against Stoke City but he had to wait 6 months for another first team appearance, after which he was rarely out of the first eleven.  His 33 goals in 1932-33 propelled Spurs to promotion to First Division, which saw him called into the England team in April 1933, scoring against Scotland on his debut and playing twice more the following month in Italy and Switzerland, winning 3 caps in total.

32 more goals for Tottenham followed in 1933-34, but his form suffered and Spurs were relegated once again. Arsenal signed him in October 1937 after 138 goals for Spurs in 198 games, but the move was not a success, he scored just 3 goals at Highbury in 21 games although he did play enough games to qualify for a League Championship medal, before moving to Bolton Wanderers in March 1938 for £5000, where he scored 23 League goals the following season, his best return for 5 seasons.

His career was interrupted by World War Two, but he continued to play for Bolton in wartime games, resuming with The Trotters after the War before signing for Sheffield Wednesday in November 1946 after 27 goals in 54 games. He stayed a year at Hillsbrough before retirement scoring 9 times in 35 games for The Owls. He later returned to Bolton’s backroom staff for several years.
