Biographical Text

Hinton was the captain of Thorneycrofts, the North Devon works team, and had previously played for Taw Shipyards. He was signed on a contract by Exeter City in March 1921.

Described as a player who had a knack of snapping up chances, he played alongside another Grecian in the Thorneycrofts side, full-back William Betteridge. Hinton went straight into the City first team to make his debut at St James’ park against Swansea Town just four days after signing. He was to ‘snap up’ just the one chance in his short stay with the club, netting on his debut.

The player left at the end of the season, and there is no record as to where he went to continue his footballing career.
