Remembering Our Heroes: Doug Morgan

6 November 2021

Ahead of Remembrance Day, we are taking a look at former Hull City players who served in the military during the First or Second World War...


Scottish left-back Doug Morgan joined Hull City in 1913 after winning the Scottish Junior Cup with Inverkeithing United.

Competing with fellow defender John McQuillan for a starting position, Morgan was an ever-present for the Tigers after making his debut against Blackpool in September 1913 and went on to make over 50 appearances in black and amber.

Morgan joined the war effort as a Gunner in the 168th Siege Battery of the Royal Garrison Artillery and on New Year’s Eve 1916, he was involved in a shell explosion in West Flanders. Morgan later died of his wounds and was buried in the Vlamertinghe Cemetery in a borough of the city of Ypres in Belgium.
