    I’ve just read this piece on Charlie Hewitt and just to inform you that there has been a cross in the career paths of two different gentleman The Millwall manager was William Charles Hewitt and was born in North Wales and passed away in the early 1970’s in Chester.

    I must congratulate you on a very interesting website, keep up the good work

    1. Hi Dave,

      Thanks for the kind words and I am happy you are finding articles for your taste. So far I am close to have added 13,000 historical articles and it feels like I have just started.


  2. Hi Kjell

    Huddersfield Town fan here. I have a 1916-17 season postcard of a Town line-up which was taken immediately before the game at home to Barnsley on 23rd September 1916 which, I believe, features Charles Hewitt. The problem is that his career biography here does not include Wartime guest appearances at Huddersfield. Hewitt played only three times for Huddersfield; 23rd & 30th September and 14th October and is recorded as a Wartime Guest.

    Could you please visit my website ->
    and confirm that it is indeed him sitting second from the right end on the front row?

    Rick McFarlane might also like to comment on/confirm this.

    Judging by the 1911 Athletic News photograph that you show here I’m 100% certain that it is indeed him.

    1. Hello,

      Thanks for contacting me regarding C. Hewitt and Huddersfield / ex. C Palace. I believe you are correct and I did some searching on the British Newspaperarchives this evening that further support what you say.

      The Star Green ‘Un for September 23, 1916 clearly states “C. Hewitt, last season with Crystal Palace” in their report of the match vs. Barnsley.
