Biographical Text

Known for his full-back partnership with Charlie Miller, and as a strong presence throughout the 1931 FA Cup run, Dicky Baugh played for Exeter City between 1929 and 1932. He joined the club from West Bromwich Albion and later played for Kidderminster Harriers. When with Wolves he missed the 1921 FA Cup final because of injury.

Part of a notable footballing family, with a father who played for Wolverhampton Wanderers and England and appeared in three FA Cup Finals, Dick returned from serving in the Great War to join Wolves himself for whom he went on to make 108 league appearances whilst suffering the disappointment of having to drop out of the team for the 1921 FA Cup Final because of injury.

He then spent the 1923/24 season with Cardiff City before joining West Bromwich Albion where he made 62 league appearances ahead of his May 1929 move to Exeter City. Making his debut against Swindon Town at St James’ Park in November 1929, he struggled to establish himself during his first season before making thirty appearances during 1930/31 and playing in the right-back position throughout the club’s run to the FA Cup quarter-final. A feature of that season was the strength of Dicky's full-back pairing with Charlie Miller.     

Leaving the club in January 1932, he headed back to the Midlands to spend four seasons with Kidderminster Harriers and died in Wolverhampton in 1972.
