Eddie Blackburn - Hull City

Eddie Blackburn

The Club was saddened to learn of the passing of former player Eddie Blackburn at the age of 61 last week.

Blackburn was a goalkeeper who joined the Tigers as an apprentice in 1973 and he spent seven years at Boothferry Park, making his senior debut in a home game against Cardiff City in 1975.

He went on to make 76 appearances before going on to join York City, and then Hartlepool United and Swedish side Halmstads BK.

Our thoughts are with Eddie’s family at this sad time.
