Biographical Text

Hugh Good, who had started in Scottish junior football, played for Exeter City in 1926/27. He joined the club from Middlesbrough and later played for Bristol City and Torquay United before returning to Scotland.

After two-and-a-half seasons with Wishaw YMCA, Hugh moved south to join Middlesbrough in the summer of 1924. He made ten league appearances for the club before signing for Exeter City two years later.

Being given his Grecians' debut in the sixth game of the season - a 4-4 draw at Norwich City on 18 September 1926  - Hugh had to wait until January for another opportunity in the first-team. Playing just twice more thereafter he left St James' Park at the end of the season for Bristol City where he failed to register a first-team appearance.

Hugh moved on to Torquay United early in 1928, where he featured in 16 league matches towards the end of the Plainmoor club's first season in the Football League, before returning to Scotland to appear for Raith Rovers, Bo'ness and Montrose. He also had spells in South Wales with Lovell's Athletic and with Glentoran and Larne in Northern Ireland.

Hugh died in 1958.
