Never saw him play as just before my time but always sad to see a member of the Palace family pass away. Far too early also.

RIP MIck.

Remember slobbering all over him at the 74 player of the year do in the supporters club. I came out with all the bullshit questions that young impressionable, obsessed football fans are prone to ask especially with a feed of babysham in the belly. Fair play to Mick, he patiently answered and said he'd never heard louder support for a team as he had from the Palace fans in the last match of the season at Cardiff.
The crowd used to give him stick and sometimes he looked like he didn't want the ball, but away from home he put in some sterling performances. Remember one game at Swindon in particular when he was out on the wing and completely destroyed the full back whenever he got the ball.

MI- MIC- MICK- MICK HILL

R.I.P. MICK.

RIP Mick

BBD showed me a good picture of Mick in one programme from the 74-5 season of Mick playing against Hereford, the caption denotes that it was another near miss, which seemed to be a recurring theme.

It would be nice touch if the Club used it on the front of the Hereford League Cup game programme in August.

Mick scores the first of his last two goals for Palace v Bournemouth at home - April 19th 1975 - Palace won 4-1 (Jim Cannon & Martin Hinshelwood also scored) despite also winning our last home match 4-0 v Gillingham - Palace lost away at Walsall and Tranmere and missed promotion by four points - Blackburn, Plymouth and Charlton went up - Swindon finished 4th and Palace 5th.

Lovely bloke, when we were on pre-season tour to Sweden he let 3 of us sleep on the floor of his room after the Lynkopping game when we told him we couldn't afford the hotel prices. There was an unused bed in the room belonging to Alan Whittle!!

Top bloke. Mick, a sad and tragic loss at such a young age.

I know I need to get a life but I was looking at the game at Ipswich in the top flight in our first ever season there (69/70) and our 0-2 defeat. I had never realised that Mick Hill had scored both the goals that beat us. So Palace that we went and bought him, remember thinking it such a weird signing at the time. So Palace that of course he didn't score much despite being 2 divisions lower. Cue Darren Pitcher and Alex Dyer type memories!

My first ever Palace away match was at Ipswich in 1969. I went with two guys from school one of whom had a Robin Reliant which you could drive on a motor bike license if i remember correctly. We lost two nil and Mick Hill was brilliant that day scoring both goals, I think! and remember saying on the way home how I wish he was playing for us. Great delight when he did sign, but sadly I never saw him reproduce the performance of that day. Fond memories of him never the less, sad day!
