Full Name: Geoff Hazledine
Normal Position: Midfielder
Born: 27/02/1932 (Arnold)
Died: 21/12/2002 (Sutton-in-Ashfield)

Geoff joined Derby County in July 1952 and made just one first team appearance in a 0-0 game at Oldham in Football League 2nd Division in February 1954. Later that year he moved into non-League football by joining Boston United and in December 1955 he was a member of the Boston team, containing six ex Derby players who beat the Rams 6-1 at the Baseball Ground in the 2nd Round of the FA Cup. It remains one of the outstanding results by a non-League side against League opposition. Hazeldine, a left-winger, scored a hat trick that day.
He returned to League football for season 1957-58 by now playing at left-half. He scored 5 goals in 29 League games but at the end of the season he returned to Boston as he was unwilling to move his home to Southport. He stayed in the Midland League with Loughborough United, Skegness, Holbeach and Bourne Town. In 1962-63, he was player-manager of the Loughborough side that captured the Midland League title.
He later became a schoolteacher.
