From Wikipedia, the free Encyclopedia

Joe Hulme (August 26, 1904 – September 26, 1991) was an English footballer and cricketer.

Born in Stafford, Hulme usually played as a right-winger. Hulme started his career at then non-league York City, before moving to Blackburn Rovers in February 1924. He spent two years at Ewood Park, before moving to Arsenal in 1926; with his phenomenal pace and ball control, Hulme become part of the great Arsenal side of the 1930s, winning the Football League three times and the FA Cup twice. In all he scored 125 goals in 374 appearances for the Gunners, making him the club's eighth-top scorer of all time.

After nearly twelve years at Arsenal, Hulme left for Huddersfield in January 1938, where he saw out the rest of his career, picking up an FA Cup runners-up medal before retiring in 1938. He played for England nine times, scoring four goals.

An all-round sportsman, Hulme also played cricket 223 times for Middlesex between 1929 and 1939.

After the war (which he spent working as a policeman), Hulme became manager of Arsenal's fiercest rivals, Tottenham Hotspur from 1945 to 1949. He achieved little actual success at the time, but he did lay the foundations for their Championship-winning side of 1951. After that, Hulme left football altogether, to become a successful journalist. He died at the age of 87, in 1991.
