Kevin Hill

Exmouth Town

Kevin Hill is a 48-year old football coach serving as the Manager of Exmouth Town Football Club . He has previously been associated with Dorchester Town, Tiverton Town and Torquay United during his career.

Born in Exeter, Hill started his football career with non-league side Torrington while working at a local supermarket. In August 1997, he was signed by Torquay United’s Kevin Hodges and made his league debut on 9 August 1997 in a 2–1 loss to Macclesfield Town. Hill quickly established himself as a regular player under various managers, and during the 2000-01 season, he was Torquay’s top scorer. His significant contributions included a crucial goal in the final game of the season against Barnet, ensuring Torquay’s survival in the league while relegating Barnet.

Hill continued to be an essential player for Torquay, featuring prominently in the 2003-04 promotion-winning team under Leroy Rosenior. By February 2006, he had played his 400th game for Torquay in a draw against Bury. Hill was granted a testimonial match in 2007 against Plymouth Argyle, and his loyalty earned him a letter from FIFA president Sepp Blatter. Despite struggling to find a place under new manager Paul Buckle, he decided to stay with Torquay even when linked with a loan move to Dorchester Town in 2008.

Hill equaled Torquay’s appearance record with his 473rd match on 5 May 2008 and surpassed it on 10 May 2008 during the FA Trophy final against Ebbsfleet United. After leaving Torquay, he joined Dorchester Town in June 2008, then moved to Tiverton Town in September 2010, and later signed with Exmouth as a player/coach in 2013. On 23 February 2022, Hill made a one-off appearance for Tiverton due to an injury crisis, playing in their defeat to Chesham United.
