Mick Hill RIP
 
former centre-forward Mick Hill has sadly passed away at the age of 60...

Hill born in Hereford made thirty five appearances while scoring nine goals for the Blades in the sixties. In his whole career he scored thirty three goals in one hundred and forty eight games. His past teams are Bethesda Athletic, Ipswich Town and Crystal Palace

Sad to hear and way too young at 60. Scored six goals in 49 appearances for Palace but found it difficult to shine in a struggling side.
RIP

Enjoyed his time with us ( even if he only ever scored one goal ! It was worth waiting for especially as it was a winner against Watford)

Very sad for him and his family to die so long before before his time

RIP

60 is too young to go

Rest in peace Mick.

Rest In Peace, Mick.

I started to follow Palace regularly about the time Mick joined Palace - it was just before the famous '3 day week' with power cuts and the first ever Sunday professional football matches.

Mick was not a real regular, but he did chip in with a goal or two - so he was genuinely one of the original 'Allison's Eagles' - and I salute his memory of many happy days getting freezing cold sat on that wall on the Whitehorse!

I'm not being horrible and maybe now isn't the time to say it, but from what I saw he was pretty cack.

Seem to recall his signing had a touch of theatre about it.
Something to do with an emergency helicopter trip to meet the deadline.
Might be wrong....

RIP Mick.

He was a bit of a cult figure in our little section of the Arthur Wait enclosure. When he finally scored at Selhurst we all went crazy. He never really made an impact at Palace unfortunately.

He was only three years older than me. Far too young to die.

Rest in peace Mick.

RIP Mick.

Malcolm chartered a jet plane and then a helicopter to get the transfer forms to the League's HQ in Blackpool in time for Hill to make his debut the following day (22nd Dec 1973) at home against Sheffield Wednesday (0-0!)

..... at a cost of 600.

Sad news regardless. He wasn't old though, what did he die from?

RIP.

My recollection is that he scored (finally) against Preston. I could be wrong, of course.

Yes, it was Preston. Mick played 12 games in the Palace side relegated from Division Two in 1974, but although he did'nt score, Palace actually won in most of those games - we had a mini-revival - but could'nt avoid relegation after a very poor Easter - and Mick missed alot of those games.

He had a very patchy season appearance wise in 74/75, but scored that Preston goal in only his third match - and made most of his appearnces towards the end of that season, scoring two in the last but one home match v Bournemouth, when promotion was still possible. He scored 6 goals in 27 full appearances that season.

Mick made four winning appearances at the start of the great 75/76 season, when Palace had one of their best ever starts to a season - and there his Palace career ended - I think Nicky Chatterton mainly kept him out of the team - and Mick left Palace for South Africa in early 1976, just as Palace's famous Cup Run was gathering pace.
