Freddie Hill played number 10 in the old 2-3-5 system today he would probably still be a number 10, great skill could unlock a defence, to look at him you would think he wasn't that fit kind of a hunched look, but the guy was a wizard with the ball at his feet , the Banners of the day said "Freddie Hill Is God"  hope he,s sat up with the great man now.

Very sad to hear. GOD indeed. Was a joy to watch, and his autographed photo has pride of place above my desk. RIP.

Yes wonderful player indeed.

I remember the day we sold him to Halifax of all teams...Halifax???

They sold him on to City to link up again with Franny Lee there.

Gone but certainly not forgotten

RIP.

Couldn't resist digging up the agreement to sell him to Halifax Town.

Great player and a great guy, according to a relative of mine. She loved him. RIP, Freddie.

I loved Freddie Hill. We had an amazing forward line but whenever Freddie got the ball Burnden lit up in anticipation of what he might do with it. Great feet, tricky as f*** and scored a fair few himself. RIP Fred.

I was sat in the Lever end just before we moved, when the guy to my right said you been watching them for a while ? Yes i said, then you probably remember my Grandad Freddie Hill took a good look at him he was the spitting image lol. Oh yes we all remember your Grandad what a player.

My first team  Hopkinson, Hartle. Farrimond, Rimmer , Hulme, Hatton, Lee, Bromley, Davies ,Hill Taylor.
Then the rot set in lol

That's exactly the first team I remember from back then Wessy. Franny and Taylor used to bomb down the wings and supply the crosses for big Blodwyn to nod home. Freddie was a genius who regularly lit up Burnden with his individual skill. It was a privilege to watch him play and he will be sadly missed.
RIP Freddie.
