With Hull City reaching a first FA Cup Final following that dramatic victory over Sheffield United this past weekend, we thought we would duly dedicate our latest Vintage post to them in tribute. We feature retro imagery of some of the club’s most significant players from the 15 year period between 1959 and 1974.
The starting point in our timeline was a successful one for the club with promotion to Division 2 achieved in 1959. That elevation was a rather temporary affair and the club came back down with a bump just a season later, having to wait until 1966 before getting another crack at the second tier. Hull came up as champions that year and this time would enjoy a lengthy spell in the second tier.
