Peter Kyle was a centre-forward, who had a tempestuous time at Tottenham, resulting it in being a short stay and his lack of application perhaps prevented him having a more notable career in the game.
The free-scoring forward started playing football for Scottish junior clubs Royal Albert, Glasgow Parkhead and Larkhill Thistle, where his play attracted Clyde to give him a trial. An early example of his attitude saw him fail to secure a contract with Clyde because he was unable to control his temper.
This did not stop Liverpool taking him on in 1899, where he started well, but when displaced, he only featured one more time and being dissatisfied with being in the reserves, he left in the summer of 1900 for Leicester City, then West Ham United in 1902 and Spurs in 1905. An initial impact of a goal in each of his first four games for the club in place of centre forward Vivian Woodward, Kyle moved to play alongside him n the England international's return to the team. A reported 'breach of training rules' in between two Western League away games in the West Country with team-mate Chris Carrick ended up with Kyle being suspended by the club.
This lead to him departing to cross the river to join Woolwich Arsenal in April 1906, making his debut in the opening day fixture in the following season. Although he scored regularly for the Gunners, the club had to sell him in 1908 March to Aston Villa. But his form was not up to his previous standard and his time at Villa was short, lasting just one season before he moved to Sheffield United with Robert Evans for a combined fee of £1100, where his failure to train properly saw him finish his playing days at Watford. Peter returned to Scotland in 1910.
Peter Kyle died in 1961.
