Having taken Ted Drake's striker's role at Winchester City when he left for Arsenal, Doug Hunt played as an amateur for Southampton, before being taken to the Spurs nursery team at Northfleet and then brought through to the first team at White Hart Lane in 1934.

Found a regular place in the first team difficult to hold down, as he played in the same position as George Hunt and Johnny Morrison, who were prolific scorers.  Nor did it help coming into a side heading for relegation.  With only 24 games under his belt, he moved on to get first team experience and signed for Barnsley, then Sheffield Wednesday until WW II broke out. 

During war-time games, Doug returned to London to play for Brentford, Fulham, Spurs, Aldershot and West Ham United, winning the London War cup with Brentford in 1942.  Stayed in the capital after the war, signing for Leyton Orient, until he stopped playing, when he became assistant manager

Went on to take over as the boss at Gloucester City in the summer of 1948.  Hunt also went on to be a trainer and coach at Yeovil Town, before managing Tonbridge from January 1954.  In 1958, he returned to the Yeovil coaching staff and stayed for a further 25 years until he left football in 1986.

Doug Hunt died on 30th May 1989 in Yeovil, Devon.
