  • Robert "Bob" Hill (3 July 1867 – 3 October 1938) was a Scottish footballer who played primarily as a centre or inside forward. Born in Forfar, Scotland, Hill began his football career when he was a soldier and was spotted playing for his regimental team, Black Watch. After a brief spell at Glentoran, it was Irish League rivals Linfield who bought him out of his army contract and took him on as a player. Hill spent three successful seasons with the Belfast club, winning two Irish Cup and two League Champions medals with them. Hill arrived at Sheffield United in February 1893, scoring on his debut as a trailist and prompting United to sign him permanently. He soon established himself in United's first team and played in the 1893 test–match victory that saw them promoted to the First Division. Hill was a regular in the side for the following two seasons, but despite starting the 1895–96 season as a first–choice striker he was surprisingly transferred to Ardwick in November 1895 along with Joe Davies and Hugh Morris. After two years at Ardwick, Hill spent a brief period with Watford St. Marys in 1898, before joining Millwall (1898–99) and then Brighton United (1899–1900). Hill then returned to his native Scotland to play for Dundee and finished his career with his home town club Forfar Athletic. (en)
