Ted Hanney played centre-half in the opening match of the 1912 Olympics against Hungary when he sustained an injury which ended his participation in the tournament. Hanney began his career with Wokingham Town before joining Reading for whom he was playing when he son his two amateur international caps. After the Olympic Games he turned professional and signed for Manchester City for the then substantial sum of £1250. After playing in the 68 league matches and 10 cut ties for Manchester City between 1913 and 1919, Hanney had two seasons with Coventry before rejoining Reading for one final season as captain in Division 3 (South). He later spent some time in Germany as coach to VfB Stuttgart, managing them to their first regional title in 1927. He then coached Wacker München before returning to his home town of Reading where he became a publican as landlord of the Russell Arms on Oxford Road. Hanney died on his way to hospital after collapsing at Reading’s Salisbury Club in 1964.
