Arthur Hudgell (born 28 December 1920 — died 2000 aged 79 or 80)[1] was an English former footballer who played for Sunderland and Crystal Palace as a full back. Hudgell played for non-league side Eton Manor before signing for Crystal Palace in 1937.[2] However, he did not make his senior debut until the club were competing in wartime football and his league debut was not until the 1946–47 season.[2] He made 25 league appearances for Crystal Palace scoring a single goal.[2] Sunderland brought Hudgell into the club in January 1947,[2] for £10,000, then a record fee for a full back,[2] and he made his debut on 1 February 1947 against Blackburn Rovers in a 2–1 win at Ewood Park.[3] He retired from football in May 1956,[2] after playing 260 league games for Sunderland, scoring no goals.[4]

Arthur Hudgell died in 2000 aged 79 or 80.[1]
