Albert Edwards Benjamin Hall (3 September 1918 – February 1998) was a Welsh footballer who played as a forward in the Football League for Tottenham Hotspur and Plymouth Argyle.

Playing career[edit]

Hall played Second Division football for Tottenham Hotspur, and finished the 1938–39 season as the club's joint top-scorer (with Johnny Morrison) with 11 goals. During World War II, he guested for many clubs across the country: Port Vale, Short Brothers, Norwich City, Luton Town, Charlton Athletic, Chelsea, Reading, Millwall and Watford.[1] After the war finished he returned to Joe Hulme's "Spurs", and helped the White Hart Lane club to a sixth-place finish in 1946–47. He then transferred to Jimmy Rae's Plymouth Argyle, but made just nine appearances for the "Pilgrims" in the 1947–48 season. He then left Home Park and moved into non-league football with Southern League side Chelmsford City.
