Biographical Text

Inglis was first noticed playing for his local side, Hebburn Colliery. Derby County signed him on professional forms in the summer of 1921, and after only one season with the Rams, he was transferred to Brentford.

In three seasons with the Griffin Park club he played in 80 league matches, before making the short move to Reading in 1925. He helped them win promotion to the Second Division in his first season with the club. In five seasons with the Elm Park side, Inglis hardly missed a league match, playing at either left-half or centre-half.

So it seemed to be quite a good signing for Exeter City when they persuaded him to come to St James’ Park in the summer of 1930. He started off in the City team, his debut being against Norwich City, but after six matches he was only in and out of team and played most of his football for the City reserves.

It was perhaps not surprising that at the end of the season he left to sign for Stockport County. Once again he was to stay at County for only the one season, scoring one goal in 35 league matches.

He linked up with Watford for 1932-33, playing in 12 league games, and then had spells with Dartford and Cray Wanderers.
He later managed the Kent League club Cray Wanderers.

William died in January 1977 in Dartford, Kent.
