ALBERT HOSKING (aka HOSKINGS)
Came from: Green Waves Went to: Green Waves
First game: 10 September 1910 Last game: 10 September 1910
Appearances: 1 (1/0) Goals: 0
Born in Plymouth, Hosking played for Green Waves and then Argyle's reserve side, with the club handbook in 1910 stating that he was "destined to make a good reputation". His one appearance for the first team, at right-half, was reported with the words "Hoskings' debut in first-class football was an entire success". What subsequently happened to him is not known, although one source suggests that he returned to Green Waves.
[Note that the quote says Hoskings', with the apostrophe after the s. This implies the name Hoskings, as is also written in one other place in the newspaper report. However, this is very likely a mistake; in three places the handbook quite clearly says his name was Hosking - against his individual photo, under the team photo, and in the list of players for the season.]
