Allan Hall was a forward, who played for Spurs and Middlesbrough and was limited in his opportunities, as he was behind England strikers George Hunt at Spurs and George Camsell at Boro and thus made the most of the games he got to play for the clubs.
Hall played his early football for Victoria Hall Juniors and Sheffield Park Labour Club, making his big step up to Doncaster Rovers in August 1926. His debut came after five weeks at the club against Wrexham (away) and he scored in the following match.
Impressed Middlesbrough enough to buy him in March 1928 and he started repaying them straight away with a debut goal away at Huddersfield on 10 April 1928.
Camsell was a first choice forward and Hall had to wait for his sporadic appearances, with two goals in seven appearances. Wanting more first team action, Bradford City rescued Allan from Ayresome Park and he was there for the 1930-31 season before moving to Lincoln City for the next campaign, which ended with a Third Division North championship winner medal. Hall's record 41 goal haul was a considerable help to the Imps in their promotion.
Spurs had noted his prolific scoring and signed the forward in June 1933 for £3,000.
His Spurs debut came on Boxing Day at Huddersfield, having impressed in the Reserves, for whom he had scored 29 goals in 20 London Combination matches. With Hunt equally as prolific, Hall was limited to only one more first team appearance at Sunderland.
His time at the club saw him captain the Reserve team and totalled 49 goals in 38 games for the second and third XIs. Without much chance of a run in the team, Spurs allowed Allan to move to Blackpool in March 1934 for the same amount he was signed for.
Playing through to the early war years, joining Gainsborough Trinity for whom he scored over 200 goals. When war came, he featured for Lincoln City and Manchester City as a guest.
Allan Hall died on 2nd February 1983 in Saxilby, Lincolnshire.
