Who was Lal Hilditch?

George Clarence "Lal" Hilditch, also known as Clarrie Hilditch, was an English footballer, and is the only person ever to have been simultaneously a player and the manager at Manchester United.

Hilditch was born in Hartford, Cheshire, and began his playing career with Hartford, before playing for Witton Albion and Altrincham. He joined Manchester United as an outside left, but soon changed to his favoured half back position. In 1926, after John Chapman was suspended for unknown reasons, Hilditch took over the manager's job for the rest of the year in addition to his playing duties.

During his United career, he played 322 league games scoring 7 league goals. He retired in 1932, without winning any medals with the club.
