Playing career

Crilly was born in Stockton-on-Tees, England and began his playing career with local team Stockton F.C., before signing for Hartlepools United (then playing in the North Eastern League) in 1919. [2] He was ever present in his first two seasons and missed only one game when Hartlepools were elected to the Third Division North in 1921–22. [2] In 1922, Crilly and teammate Harry Thoms moved, along with manager Cecil Potter, to Derby County. [2] He made over 200 appearances, in total, for Derby and helped the club achieve promotion to the First Division, [2] before moving to Crystal Palace in 1928 (again at the same time as Thoms). [2] He was a regular in the sides that finished Third Division South runners up in 1929 and 1931. [2] In 1933 he moved to Northampton Town, where he became club captain [2] between then and 1935 when he moved to become player-manager of Scunthorpe & Lindsey United. [2]

Later career

Crilly left Scunthorpe in 1937 and became a publican in Derby. He also assisted with coaching Derby County junior players during The Second World War. [2]

Crilly died in Derby on 18 January 1960. [2]
