Biographie

Kenneth HUNT

Kenneth Hunt was educated at Trent College and Queen’s College, Oxford, and six weeks after appearing in his fourth and final match for Oxford against Cambridge he played for Wolverhampton Wanderers in the 1908 FA Cup final, scoring one of the goals which helped Wolves to a 3-1 victory over Newcastle United. Hunt also played league football for Leyton and Crystal Palace. In 1913, while playing for Oxford City, he came close to being only the third man in history to play on the winning side in both the FA Cup final and the FA Amateur Cup final, but City lost narrowly in the Amateur final to South Shields. A fast and fearless wing-half, he twice played for England in full internationals and made 20 amateur international appearances between 1907 and 1921. After winning a gold medal in 1908, he missed the 1912 Olympics but at the age of 36 made a second Olympic appearance at Antwerp in 1920. He was appointed an assistant master at Highgate School in 1908, was ordained in 1911, and retired from teaching in 1945 after spending 37 years at Highgate. Hunt died in 1949 just two days before his beloved Wolverhampton Wanderers beat Leicester City to win the FA Cup for the first time since 1908, when Hunt had played for them.
