Former York City midfielder Dick Hewitt has reportedly died at the age of 74.

Born in South Elmsall in 1943, Hewitt was a clever and industrious inside-forward who made 106 appearances and scored nine goals for the club between 1968-72.

Having originally begun his career with Huddersfield Town after turning professional in 1961, it was some three years later before he eventually made his league debut for Bradford City.

Following a spell at Barnsley, Hewitt then joined neighbours York in March 1969 and remained for three full seasons, including promotion in 1970-71.

He notably scored City’s second goal in an absolutely classic FA Cup fourth round 3-3 draw with First Division Southampton in January 1971 – in front of a huge 13,775 Bootham Crescent attendance.

Hewitt later moved to Scarborough and enjoyed a very successful time while helping them towards an FA Trophy final victory at Wembley in 1973.
