Hill made his debut in 1932 after being spotted playing cricket by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle in the New Forest, and played through to 1954.
His best season was in 1935, when he took 93 wickets, including a career-best 8 for 62 against Kent at Tonbridge, a performance which earned him his county cap. He batted in all 11 positions for Hampshire with four centuries, including a top score of 161 against Sussex at Portsmouth. At one time Hill was the unwelcome owner of the record for the most runs conceded in an over (32).
