Biographical Text

Starting his football career with local side, Blyth Spartans, Kennedy then signed for Sheffield United in 1929, but didn’t make their league side at all during his stay at Bramall Lane.

He had much better luck at Tranmere Rovers though whom he joined in 1930, where he scored 45 goals in just 65 outings, thus he arrived at Exeter City in the summer of 1932 with quite a goalscoring reputation.

Kennedy had to wait for his City debut though, lining up against Brentford at St James’ Park in September 1932.

He never did recapture the scoring form he had shown at Tranmere and after one season was released.

Kennedy went on to sign for Torquay United in November 1933, but in one season there, he netted just once in 19 league starts.

He spent the 1934-35 season with Watford, but never made a league outing.
