Biographical Text

Harold was born in Bolton 1893.

Previously with Sheffield United, Newport County and Cardiff City, Holt signed for Exeter City in the summer of 1913.
He had to wait until October of that year though before he made his Grecians debut in a Southern League fixture at Gillingham. After that, he never looked back and was a virtual ever-present for the rest of the season, scoring three goals in 30 starts.

In the 1914-15 season, he played in every match in City’s Southern League programme - 38 appearances, scoring four goals. Including the matches on the South American tour concluding with the match against Brazil in Rio. 

After the First World War, Holt assisted Chesterfield, Gillingham (in 1920-21 where he made 6 Football League outings) and Mansfield Town.
