James Hill was an English footballer.

Playing career[edit]

Hill most likely joined Port Vale in the summer of 1917.[1] He scored on his debut at outside-left in a 4–1 defeat at local rivals Stoke on 6 October 1917.[1] He was a regular in the first team from the following month, though was on active duty from March 1918 to January 1919 and so was unable to play any matches.[1] He was rarely picked during the 1919–20 Second Division season however, but was in the starting 11 for the Staffordshire Senior Cup win of 1920.[1] He was released at the end of the 1920–21 campaign and so moved on to Shrewsbury Town.[1]
