Biographical Text

William Inglis played for Exeter City in 1930/31. He joined the club from Reading and later played for Stockport County. After starting his professional career with Derby County he finished at Watford. 

He  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 he hardly missed a league match playing at either left-half or centre-half.

Signing for Exeter City in the summer of 1930, he started off in the City team, his debut being against Norwich City but after six matches he was in-and-out of the team and it was perhaps not surprising that at the end of the season he left to sign for Stockport County where he stayed one season whilst playing 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 where he was later manager. Remaining in the area he died in January 1977 in Dartford.
