Biography of Ebor Hill



HERITAGE NO : 374
Edward Hill by Alex Service

Edward Hill was known universally as Ebor and began his career with the famous St.Helens junior team Unos Dabs in the 1920s. Ebor could play with equal effectiveness in both the front and second rows, but it was at prop where he found the most success. He was signed in August 1928 and was a regular reserve for the First Team for the following two seasons before establishing himself in the side. He could play both open and blind side prop forward and he made 34 appearances in the 1930-31 campaign scoring 3 tries. Ebor played in 36 matches the following year, climaxed by the Saints first-ever League Championship success, against Huddersfield at Wakefield in the final. Ebor was in the side that afternoon and it proved to be the end of an era at Knowsley Road, as financial difficulties meant that stars were sold to keep the club afloat. Ebor was transferred to Bradford Northern in February 1934 and then on to Halifax. He finished his career where it had begun at Unos Dabs, where he became trainer.

Ebor was a Coal Miner Driller and lived in Pocket Nook Street, St Helens in 1939. He passed away in St Helens in December 1984, aged 75. Another famous name, Tot Wallace of the Recs, died at the same time.
