Hemingway, Cyril


Rotherham, Yorkshire



Biographical Text

Cyril Hemingway scored nineteen times during his only season with Exeter City. Joining from Torquay United in 1929, his form attracted the attention of Wolves although he struggled to make an impact after joining the Molineux club. Having started with Rotherham, he returned to Torquay after his time with Wolves. 

Starting his career with Rotherham, Cyril netted 22 goals in 67 league appearances for the Yorkshire club ahead of moving to Torquay United for the 1928/29 season where he was to score 11 goals in 38 starts.

Described as a player with 'immense shooting power and cleverness on the ball’, Cyril made the move to St James’ Park in the summer of 1929 and made a goalscoring debut against Luton Town on 31 August 1929. With George Guyan also scoring regularly, Cyril ended up as leading scorer with 19 goals in 39 league appearances including four against Northampton Town in a 6-4 win.

Catching the attention of bigger clubs, Cyril earned a transfer to Wolverhampton Wanderers where he failed to hit the target in four league starts. Returning to Devon, he had another spell with Torquay United in 1931/32 (adding a further 4 goals in 23 league appearances) before signing for Dartmouth United.
