Anthony Hateley (13 June 1941 – 1 February 2014) was an English footballer who played as a centre forward. He played for several clubs in The Football League, including Notts County, Aston Villa, Chelsea and Liverpool. He was the father of former England footballer Mark Hateley and grandfather of footballer Tom Hateley.
Tony Hateley was born in Derby on 13 June 1941. He was educated at Normanton Junior School.
Hateley started his career with Notts County, where he first established himself as a prolific goalscorer, especially through his heading ability, and scored 77 league goals in 131 matches. The club won promotion to the Third Division in 1960–61, while Hateley's goals earned him a move to County's Midlands rivals Aston Villa in 1963. Hateley continued his prolific scoring record at Villa, once scoring four second-half goals as Villa came from 5–1 down to draw 5–5 with Tottenham Hotspur,and his 86 goals in less than 150 games played a significant part in saving the club from relegation to the Second Division. In October 1966 Chelsea's offer of £100,000 for Hateley was accepted and he moved to west London.
The £100,000 fee Chelsea manager Tommy Docherty paid for Hateley was a club record and he arrived as a replacement for recent broken leg victim Peter Osgood.However, Chelsea's game had previously been based around quick passing and movement, while Hateley had thrived on crosses and long balls, meaning the team's style had to be adapted to accommodate him. Though his aerial ability was one of the best in his era, Hateley's technical ability was more lacking – Docherty once commented that Hateley's passes ought to be labelled "to whom it may concern" – and he struggled at the club. He scored six league goals during the season, and the highlight of his time at Chelsea came in the FA Cup semi-final against Leeds United when he headed in the winning goal at Villa Park. He also played in Chelsea's 2–1 final loss to Tottenham Hotspur at Wembley.
Having scored a total of nine goals in 33 appearances, in June 1967 Hateley was sold to Bill Shankly's Liverpool, who broke his own club's record in paying £96,000 for him.He scored 27 goals for Liverpool in the 1967–68 season, including hat-tricks against Newcastle United and Nottingham Forest, but once again Hateley's style did not suit his team's and he moved on after a year, this time to Coventry City. After a season at Coventry he was sold to Birmingham City and then returned to his first club, Notts County, where he rediscovered his scoring touch and led them to the Fourth Division title in 1970–71. After a brief stint at Oldham Athletic and 3 matches for the Boston Minutemen in the North American Soccer League he retired from the game in 1974, having scored almost 250 career goals. He was never capped for England.
After his retirement from the professional game he played in non-League for Bromsgrove Rovers and in season 1975-76 he returned to Merseyside and played for Prescot Town in the Mid-Cheshire League.
At the time of his retirement his combined transfer fees were a record for a single player in English football.
He died aged 72 on 1 February 2014, after a long illness.

Mark Wayne Hateley, nicknamed Attila during his time in Milan, is an English former footballer who played as a centre forward. Hateley's breakthrough season came at Second Division side Portsmouth, where he ended the 1983–84 season as the club's top goalscorer. He then moved to A.C. Milan, and despite his time at the club affected by inconsistent performances and injuries, he is fondly remembered for his winning goal against Inter Milan in 1984. In 1987, Hateley signed for Monaco, winning the league in his first season at the Monegasque club. In 1990, he signed for Rangers. In his five-year spell at the club, he was a part of a title winning squad in every season, and he attained personal success in the 1993–94 season, as he was voted both the SFWA Footballer of the Year and the SPFA Players' Player of the Year, as well as the league's top goalscorer with twenty-two goals. He briefly rejoined the club in 1997, as there were no available forwards for the Old Firm match, but was sent off on his second debut. In 1999, Hateley was named as part of Rangers' greatest ever team, and in 2003, he was inducted to Rangers' Hall of Fame.
